Sump Pump Flood Prevention

A sump pump is essential for flood prevention in your basement. Sump pumps are a simple pump and basin system, where water is directed to, from around and underneath the foundation of a house. Once the water reaches a specified level within the sump basin, the sump pump activates, either automatically or manually. The water is pumped to a distant collection point, away from the house, or into the sewer system. A sump system is especially important in the event of heavy rains, as it will activate frequently and help to prevent basement flooding.

Types of Sump Pumps

There are many different types of sump {pumps}, but the principal functionality is the same; to pump excess water out from underneath the foundation of your home.

Backup Sump Pumps

Backup sump pumps are a crucial component to a basement flood prevention system. Most sump pumps operate on electricity, so in the event of a power outage, the water level is uncontrolled and rises quickly. A battery backup or water powered sump pump acts as a support system that continues working during a power outage. As sump pumps are most important during storms and heavy rain, a backup sump pump system will provide peace of mind in the worst-case scenarios.

Sump Pump Failure Insurance

For most insurance plans, sump pump failure is not a covered source of loss. It’s important to verify if your insurance policy will cover sump pump failure, and if the installation of a backup system is required. An additional policy rider, specifically for sump pump failure, may be an option. Check with your insurance provider and install a backup sump pump immediately to prevent any unexpected costs that may result from a failed sump pump.
