Sump Pump and Backup System

Fact: According to the Insurance Info Institute, 22% of all claims included sump pumps or frozen pipes. The average claim amount was $5,531. The Chubb Insurance group estimated that 37% of homeowners have experienced water damage. The average life span of a sump pump is 10 years.

The Sump pump can be described as the engine that keeps liquid in your sump flowing out the right way. It is EXTREMELY important to have a fully functional Sump Pump in a home that has a basement in it. Sump Pumps are known to have a life span of 9-10 years before a full replacement is needed. Just because this is the life expectancy, doesn’t mean that your pump doesn’t need annual maintenance during this time. ┬áPumps can have issues during this time that can affect the over all function of the pump. When the pump the stops working properly then that means it’s not flushing out the liquid and waste. When the liquid and waste aren’t flushed out, that simply means one thing…flooding. Do the necessary things to make sure this doesn’t happen in your home.
