How Do Sump Pumps Prevent Floods?
Sump pumps are designed to pump excess water out of your home, to a place where it will not pose a threat to your home and loved ones, such as a municipal storm drain or dry well.
It is highly recommended that sump pumps, while often hardwired into your home’s electrical system, have a backup battery. This is because in the event of a storm, power may get knocked out, and you wouldn’t want to be without a working sump pump when you need it most.

Some Signs That Your Sump Pump Is in Need of Repair
It is essential to maintain your sump pump at all times because you never know when a severe storm might hit and you'll need your pump more than ever. Don't get stuck in a storm, with a flooded basement and no way of pumping the water out!
Call the sump pump contractors at Paul The Plumber if you experience any of the following:
- Your pump won't turn on or has trouble turning off: This could indicate a problem with the float-actuated switch which, if not addressed, could lead to more issues in the future.
- There is a strange smell coming from your sump pump: This could be a sign that the system is not venting properly, or was not sealed correctly. It may also mean that there is a clog in your sump pump. Whatever the cause of the smell, it is imperative that you call Paul The Plumber right away, as these issues could lead to your pump malfunctioning and your home flooding.
- Your sump pump is making noise: This is an issue that needs immediate attention, as it usually signals that there is a jam in the pump, or that your pump is having mechanical problems.
If your sump pump is more than 10 years old and experiencing any of these problems, ask Paul The Plumber about our sump pump replacement service.
