Sump Pumps

Sump PumpMonroe and Ontario Counties are notorious for their wet seasons. Those seasons also happen to be when many Rochestarians like to escape for a bit. There’s nothing worse than coming home from vacation to discover your basement flooded because you didn’t have a sump pump. Or worse, your existing sump pump failed and the house sitter didn’t notice the contents of your basement floating around at the bottom of the stairs. Do you need a sump pump system? Call Pride Plumbing of Rochester today and discover the benefits of a quality, professionally installed sump pump system, and a cutting edge remote monitoring system that you can access on your smart phone from anywhere in the world.

Here’s How They Work

Sump pumps are installed at the lowest point of your basement or crawl space, often times in a specially created pit. Water flows into the pit via drain channels or naturally up through the soil. When the water reaches a certain level, the sump pump kicks on automatically and directs the water out and away from the house and foundation through a discharge pipe, saving you from a costly flood and possible resulting mold and mildew issues.

Battery powered backup systems are designed to operate when the main sump pump fails, say during a power outage. The backup pump is equipped with its own switch that’s activated by the water when it reaches a certain level. It can also work in conjunction with your main pump in the event of a heavy storm if the main pump is having trouble keeping up.

Water powered backup systems operate using your municipal water source to create suction which pulls the water out of your sump pit in the event your main sump pump fails. The water is pumped out of your basement through dedicated piping that’s run through the sill plate and dispersed externally. This is a safety measure to ensure the water leaves your basement in the event your main drainage has been clogged. The system is also equipped with an alarm to notify you when your main pump has failed and your water backup has been turned on.

Sump pumps and backup sump pumps can be fitted with alarms to notify you if the pump is not working. A loud signal and bright flashing lights warn you of an issue or failure. Wireless remote alarm systems, such as the Liberty Pump’s NightEye, are accessed via your smartphone so you can stay connected and in control no matter where in the world you are.
