what is a sump pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that is generally installed in the lowest point of your home. It works by pumping groundwater from under your basement floor, before it has the opportunity to rise into your basement or living space.
The pump redirects the water to the nearest storm drain, dry well, retention pond or a low lying area of your yard. When water enters the sump well, the pump is triggered on by a float switch and only activates when water reaches a predetermined level. By removing excess water, sump pumps prevent water from entering your home.
Many new homes are equipped with pumps, or at least a sump pit, but older homes are easily retrofitted with a sump system or French drain to prevent basement flooding and give you the peace of mind that comes with it.

Sump Pump Maintenance
Most homeowners forget about preventative maintenance of their sump pumps and sewage pumps – until they are standing in ankle-deep water. There is no worse time to discover your sump pump isn’t working than after a heavy rain or quick snow melt.
Being proactive and ensuring your sump pump is in good working order will help prevent basement flooding. Regular service and maintenance are critical to extending the life of your pumps. Maintenance should be completed annually and you should check your pump quarterly if it is over 5 years old.
Handy homeowners can provide their own maintenance, its not brain surgery, just a little messy and requires a few tools. Check out our self service page for tips and tricks. If you prefer to leave the dirty work to someone else, the professionals at Sump Pump Gurus are happy to assist.
Sewage Pump Maintenance
Sewage Pump MaintenanceIf you are unfortunate enough to require a sewage pump to remove your waste water, there are a couple thing you should know. NEVER, EVER, flush objects down the toilet that could cause you problems. Wipes, tampons, dental floss are just a few items that should not be flushed along with excess kitchen grease and food scraps.
Maintaining your sewage pump annually, can double its useful lifetime to better than 10 years. Its a dirty job, but opening up the pit annually and cleaning the walls, pump and float devices insure that there is nothing for the float to get stuck on and will keep the pit from smelling “off”. Replacement of the check valve at this time is also beneficial.
This is again, a service you can perform yourself, but it is a dirty job.
