Sump Pump Failure & Flooding Cleanup in Cincinnati, Ohio

One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to put an end to flooding or wetness below the home is by installing a Sump Pump. Teasdale Fenton Restoration will professionally install a sump pump & perform other services for you in Cincinnati, OH. Sump pumps are installed in many homes in the basement or crawl space as a preventative measure to avoid indoor flooding and water damage. They're a key factor in keeping your basement and crawl space dry.

Sump Pump

What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump system is designed to detect moisture and water and then pump it out from your home. It's typically installed in the lowest part of your basement or crawl space, also known as the sump basin, with a pipe that acts as a passageway for the water to be released out, away from the foundation. Once your sump pump detects water, it automatically gets to work activating the pump and removing the water.

When severe weather and storms occur, your sump pump system will immediately start directing water away from your home as it accumulates. However, most sump pumps require electricity to do their job. So if the power goes out, your sump pump system won't be able to redirect the water if you don't have a battery backup sump pump installed. If you have a battery backup sump pump system and the power goes out, the backup system will automatically start - keeping the water out of your basement or crawl space.

Most Common Problems with A Sump Pump

When it comes to sump pump failure, you rarely know something is wrong until water starts filling your basement or crawl space even though your sump pump should alert you to an issue. Some of the most common sump pump issues you may see include:

Most common sump pump issues
  • Power outage
  • Broken check valve
  • Debris and dirt in the pump
  • Clogged discharge lines
  • Wrong size sump pit or pump

Sump pumps should be checked regularly and serviced annually to ensure proper operation when you need them most. We highly recommend that you also have a battery backup sump pump installed. This not only helps you when there is a power outage, but it also will kick in if the main pump fails or becomes overwhelmed.
