How Sump Pumps Work
Living in an area prone to heavy rainfall demands a sump pump system built to detect, disperse, and prevent rising water levels from entering your home and corroding your property. When water levels reach a predetermined level, a float switch will trigger the sump pump mechanism, redirecting flood water into storm drains and areas outside and away from your home. Sump pumps should be equipped with battery-powered water-level alarms and battery backup power to adequately warn you of the potential for flooding if your sump pump malfunctions. There are two main types of residential sump pumps:
- Pedestal – Pedestal sump pumps are affixed above the sump pit, which provides easy access for performing service and diagnostics.
- Submersible – Submersible sump pumps are installed out of sight in a sump pit or well.
While sump pumps provide the ultimate defense against flooding and water damage, they're not built to last forever. Get in touch with Mr. Rooter Plumbing of St. John’s today to keep your sump pump strong and running smoothly.
