Indianapolis Sump Pump Repair and Installation

Sump Pumps and Battery Backup Sump Pumps for the Greater Indianapolis Area

Water damage poses to be an expensive threat to your home, especially when there is heavy rain. A reliable sump pump can prevent flooded basements and crawl spaces which not only protects your home’s structure and contents but also helps you avoid problems with mold and mildew that thrive in damp areas.

A sump pump keeps your crawl space or basement dry by automatically pumping and channeling water away from the foundation when the ground is saturated with water. If the sump pump fails, your basement can flood, causing expensive damage to your home, furnishing, and keepsakes that can’t be replaced like family photos. It’s important to have a reliable sump pump that can help protect your home when the weather is at is rainiest.

Sump pumps are installed in your basement or crawlspace and are designed to help keep the area dry and free of flooding. Sump pumps are installed in sump pits, and they pump water out of the pit and away from your home, keeping your basement and crawl space dry. The water is absorbed into the ground away from your home.

According to the American Society of Home Inspectors, more than 60% of American homes suffer from underground moisture. Many of us are likely to experience a flooded basement or crawl space at some time, and it doesn’t take much water to cause thousands of dollars in damage to the structure of your home and your belongings. Sadly,  water damage can affect many things in homes that have sentimental value and are unable to be replaced or repaired.

We get a lot of rain and snow in Indianapolis, so if you don’t have a sump pump, call Williams Comfort Air and one of our experienced, licensed plumbers can install the correct sump pump for your home.

Should You Have a Battery Backup Sump Pump in Indianapolis?

Many of us have a sump pump to protect our homes from flooding, but what happens WHEN:

  • the power goes out?
  • the primary pump fails?
  • the float switch on your sump pump gets stuck?

The answer, you can assume, is that your sump pump won’t work, and your basement or crawl space could flood. For these reasons, it is wise to install a battery backup sump pump. 

Common reasons for sump pumps failure:

  • Loss of power
  • Lack of professional maintenance
  • Age
  • Manufacturer defect
  • Component failure

With so many ways for your sump pump to fail, having a backup pump covers you when Murphy’s Law strikes. If your primary pump doesn’t turn on for any reason, the battery backup will kick in.

The battery backup pump is installed next to your primary unit and is a redundant system that operates independently when the primary pump fails. Since it is battery-powered, you can rest easy when you lose power to your home. Also, the battery backup pump can assist the primary pump if it is unable to keep up with the amount of water pouring into the pit. 

By installing a battery backup sump pump, not only will you be protecting your property and valuable belongings, you will save yourself the unpleasant experience of hours of cleanup time, the expense of professional restoration services, and the replacement of property and equipment that were damaged.
