Choosing the Right Sump Pump for Your Home
A sump pump works by measuring the water levels around your home and acting as a discharge pump to remove any excess water.
These systems work automatically, which means having the right system in place can mean the difference between a dry basement and a flooded one.
As the name suggests, these pumps are submerged directly into your sump pit. They’re built with a waterproof motor and offer quieter operation. Additionally, because they’re in the pit, they often work more effectively, however, they only work if your sump pit is large enough.
These units sit above the sump pit and use a float to measure water levels. They’re ideal for smaller sump pits and use an impeller apparatus to pump water away from your home.
If your home has a bathroom or sewer line below ground surface, a sewage sump pump is used to move that wastewater up and out of your home.
Depending on the space and layout of your home, our plumbers will help you choose the ideal unit. Regardless of which option you choose, investing in a sump pump can add value and security to your home, a win-win for all homeowners.
Top Sump Pump Repair Issues You May Face
More often than not, your sump pump won’t get much use unless there’s an emergency. Because of this, it’s common for these units to fall into disrepair.
- Float Valve Issues
- Worn Out Motors
- Underpowered Unit
- Obstructed Discharge Pipe
- Electrical Issues (wiring or otherwise)
The main concern you’ll have to deal with is a worn-out motor or an obstruction in your discharge pipe. Because Boise, ID is known for its cold temperatures, a frozen pipe can easily prevent that excess water from making its way out of your home. Luckily, many of these issues can be prevented with routine sump pump maintenance.
