What Are Sump Pumps?
Sump pumps are submersible units that sit within a sump pit in a basement or crawl space; generally whichever is the lowest point of the home’s foundation. Also at the base of your home’s foundation is a perimeter drain that collects loose running ground water beneath a home. Freed water gets diverted to the sump pit as well. Sump pumps are triggered by a float switch, which eliminates water by pumping it into the nearest retention pond, well, or storm drain. These pumps are only triggered to turn on when a certain level of water accumulates within the sump pit.

Sump Pump Failure
When your sump pump fails to remove water from your basement, or you have a long power outage during a severe storm, you might come home to an expensive disaster. It is wise to consider replacing your pump every 5-10 years. It is also wise to have a back up plan in place in case of a huge storm or long power outage. Master plumber Mark Weilhammer recommends installing the Aquanot ll® Battery Backup Sump Pump in your sump pit along with your main sump pump. The Aquanot ll® is the most reliable back up system on the market today. Just call 317-784-1870 to receive more information about our sump pump products and prices, anytime.
