Understanding Your Sump Pump
Sump pumps play a vital role in many central PA-area homes, preventing basements from flooding during periods of heavy rain and during the spring thaw. Sump pumps are small pumps installed in the lowest part of the home — typically a specially constructed pit in the basement or crawlspace. When water in the pit reaches a certain level, the sump pump automatically turns on, moving the water to higher ground where it can’t damage your home.
Sump pumps require a reliable source of power and many feature a battery backup system to ensure operation during an outage. While they require little regular maintenance, periodic inspections can help avoid costly damage to your basement and foundation. Inspections can ensure that your pump will deliver performance when necessary.
How to Inspect Your Sump Pump
Performing a sump pump inspection is a simple task that can be completed either by a homeowner or by our team. If you’re choosing to inspect it yourself, follow these steps:
- Check to ensure your pump is plugged in and standing upright
- Inspect your fuse or breaker box to confirm it hasn’t blown or tripped
- Check that any backup power system is operational
- Pour a large bucket of water to confirm the pump works
- Find the outlet pipe outside the home and clear away any debris
Sump pump inspections should be performed several times a year, especially in the spring when it’s absolutely essential that your pump be functional. If you notice any signs of trouble — such as poor drainage, strange noises or the pump turning on and off for no apparent reason — contact a Home Climates representative for immediate service.
