Sump Pump Service - Dayton Ohio

There are many things homeowners don’t know about owning a home and a majority of the time sump pumps are one of those things. Sump pumps are usually installed underneath the floor of basements and crawl spaces so they are closest to the ground so they can collect ground water that collects underneath the home. This is essential when you have long periods of rain in a day or many days of rain, or even a lot of melting snow. Ground water can easily rise through the cracks in the foundation in your home during long periods of rain and cause water damage. The sump pump collects that water before it can damage your home and redirects it away from your home! 

Not every home needs one but if you have a basement/ crawl space that experiences wetness and moisture you should consider having a sump pump installed. According to the American Society of Home Inspectors, more than 60% of homes do experience ground wetness and moisture and should consider installing a sump pump! 

Sump Pump Battery Backup

in Sump Pump Battery Backup

Sump pump battery backups are used to supplement primary sump pumps. Sump pumps can fail when there are power outages, mechanical failure or excessive/ over use. With a sump pump battery backup, you can get a few hours of protection from water damage when your primary sump pump fails.

There are two types of battery backup sump pumps, and those are DC and AC/DC. Usually battery backup systems will switch to the DC battery power when the AC power is out/ when the pump fails. Though there are cases that when the power is still on the pumps can run off the AC wall current with out draining the battery fully. Sump pumps that run solely off of DC power will only run off battery power.
