Sump pump failure in Streeterville?

1/25/2021 (Permalink)

A damaged sump pump hose is taped to the pump in a flooded basement. Gold Coast area businesses rely on us for water restoration services.

Does your sump pump have a backup battery?

When sump pumps do their job water is pumped to a storm drain, a dry well, or away from the exterior of the home. But when the soil gets saturated with water from heavy rains or snowmelt, water intrusion can occur when the groundwater enters through the sump. SERVPRO® of Gold Coast /Lincoln Park /Lakeview responds to flooding and other water damage emergencies 24 hours a day in Streeterville and the surrounding areas, and our team of highly trained water restoration technicians will restore your water damage to preloss condition quickly and with minimal disruption.

Here is some helpful information from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) about backup batteries for sump pumps:

  • Your basement can become flooded when your primary pump stops working, when the power goes out or when torrential rains overload the pump beyond its capacity.
  • A battery backup pump is an inexpensive safeguard against basement flooding and should begin pumping. The backup goes to work when water in the sump reaches the float switch. Some of the newer models have a unique monitoring system that sounds an alarm when a maintenance issue arises
