Does Your Home Need a Sump Pump?

Not all homes deal with flooding. If your home is located away from lakes or rivers, high enough above the water table, or particularly flood resistant, you’ll be just fine without a sump pump. For those who aren’t so fortunate, a properly functioning sump pump can make the difference between keeping your basement dry and having to pay dearly for water damage repair. At Triple-T Plumbing, Heating & Air, our experienced plumbers can help you select the right sump pump for your home, provide professional installation, or help troubleshoot problems with your existing sump pump. Let us help you keep your belongings safe and your wallet full.

Sump Pump & Sump Basin Selection

Choosing the right sump pump for your space depends largely on how vulnerable your basement is to flooding, how much water your sump pump will have to handle when flooding occurs, and how you want the pump to fit into your space. Your sump pump and basin will need to meet the needs for available space, water volume, and energy requirements. You need to be sure the basin is large enough to hold the water while the pump works to get it out, ensuring it won’t overflow into the basement.

You also may want to consider a battery backup option to provide additional insurance if the power goes out during a storm. Battery backup units help take over if the sump pump stops working due to a blackout or any other reason. It will kick in and keep your basement free of water so you don’t have to worry during a thunderstorm.

Types of Sump Pumps Available

Primary sump pumps typically come either as submersible or pedestal pumps. The type you will need will depend on where your home is located in relation to the water that could flood the basement.

Depending on your needs, you can choose between the following:

  • Submersible pumps: Submersible pumps are the most common type of pump and involve placing the motor inside the sump basin. They are typically quieter, are completely hidden and are usually longer lasting than pedestal pumps.
  • Pedestal pumps: Pedestal pumps meanwhile sit with the motor outside of the water, above the sump basin. These are usually best for smaller sump basins. Pumps also come with a range of power levels, with those with higher power running for less time.
