Using a Sump Pump
A sump pump works by removing water from your basement and pumping it outside your home. Sump pumps are usually used in conjunction with a perimeter drainage system in the basement. The perimeter drain system guides any water that enters the basement to the sump pump reservoir where the pump pushes the water outside. Flooded basements can be prevented by using a sump pump as your first line of defense.
Sump pumps vary widely in quality, from cheap, unreliable models that plumbers can install to the high quality cast-iron quality Zoeller models installed by Blackburn Basement Systems. If you’re having a plumber return to your home time and again after it rains you need to get a better pump, a Zoeller pump installed by Blackburn!
Backup Sump Pumps
Rain storms can be unpredictable. A light mist can quickly become a torrent. What would happen if your sump pump can’t handle the job?What’s worse, what would happen if your home lost power when your pump is needed most? A battery-powered backup sump pump can be the difference between having a clean, dry basement and a basement full of dirty water! Even better is a pump that has a secondary pump built in that will kick in if the main pump becomes overwhelmed. Our patented WaterWatch alarm will sound when the pumps turn on, alerting you that water has entered the basement. Our sump pumps offer dual discharge lines, a stronger liner and an airtight floor drain making them the top of their class!
How do you know your sump pumps are working?
The only way to ensure your pumps are properly working is to test them EVERY DAY.
Basement Defender™ is the only system that TESTS sump pumps every morning and ALERTS to problems before an emergency situation.
It’s like having a service technician watching your sump pit activity 24/7.
Every morning, Basement Defender™ activates primary and battery backup pumps to run for a few seconds. We like to think of it as exercising the pumps, so they’re in perfect shape to spring into action when you need them to do their job.
Even more, Basement Defender™ is constantly watching for changes in the sump system, like pump activity, battery strength, amperage/voltage and environmental factors like temperature and humidity. When a concern is detected, Basement Defender™ instantly sends an alert to you via text, app notification, or even email.
