How Does It Work?
Crawl space sump pumps work by collecting and pumping the built-up water outdoors, keeping the inside of your house dry. Like anything with movable components, these pumps ought to be routinely checked to make sure that it is in working order and is efficient. A clogged pump or one with a dead battery or loose cables does not do a great deal of good. Experts suggest getting your pump looked over at least one time each year before the harsh seasons. When the pump is combined with an effective encapsulation system your home can be very well protected from crawl space water problems.
Thunder Storms & Battery Backups
Some homeowners already have a sump pump, but it could be finicky and occasionally fall short during storms and power outages, and this is the reason why it's wise to have a battery backup sump pump set up for your crawl space. When it loses power, you lose the pump also. What if you decide to go on vacation, and, when you are gone, your house is hit with heavy flooding that your primary pump cannot manage? In cases such as these, a battery backup pump can save the day. With a battery backup sump pump, you are able to stay protected 24/7, even throughout the worst storms, heaviest floods, or when your primary pump does not switch on or simply isn't doing the job. A battery backup pump also consists of a charging system which will recharge the battery once power has been recovered.
