Sump Pump Failure/Flooding Services by Teasdale Fenton

Sump Pump Failure/Flooding Services in Dayton, Ohio

Sump pump systems are designed to keep your home dry in difficult, water-logged conditions. Typically installed in a home's basement or crawl space as a preventative measure to avoid indoor flooding and water damage, a sump pump kicks into action when it detects moisture and pumps it away from your home.

If the pump malfunctions, your home gets wet and flooding often results. When you need to dry out your basement or crawl space in the Greater Dayton, OH area because of sump pump failure, our licensed professionals from Teasdale Fenton will provide sump pump failure recovery services and help you get your life back in order.

How Does a Sump Pump Work?

A sump pump system is designed to detect moisture and water and then pump it out away from your home. The pump typically is installed in the lowest part of your basement or crawl space, also known as the sump basin, with a pipe that acts as a passageway for the water to be released and flow away from your foundation. Once your sump pump detects water, the pump automatically begins removing water.

When severe weather and storms occur, your sump pump starts directing water away from your home as it accumulates. However, most sump pumps require electricity to do their job. If the power goes out, your sump pump system won't be able to redirect the water unless you if have a battery-backup sump pump installed. If you have a battery backup system in place, the backup system will automatically start when the power goes out, keeping water out of your basement or crawl space.

Common Sump Pump Problems for Homeowners

Sump pump systems may fail for a variety of reasons. Problem is, you rarely know something is wrong until water starts filling your basement or crawl space because your sump pump should alert you to that problem. To avoid major issues, it is wise to check the functionality of your sump pump periodically. Some of the most common sump pump issues you may see include:

  • Power Outage
  • Broken Check Valve
  • Debris and Dirt in the Pump
  • Clogged Discharge Lines
  • Wrong Size Sump Pit or Pump

Sump pumps should be checked regularly and serviced annually to ensure proper operation when you need them most. We highly recommend that you also have a battery backup sump pump installed. This not only helps you when there is a power outage, it also will kick in if the main pump fails or becomes overwhelmed.
