Sump Pump Water Damage 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.

Prevent Water Damage with a Backup Sump Pump

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.

Types of Sump Pumps to Avoid Water Damage

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.

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.
