A sump pump is a device that evacuates rain water from a basin outdoors or to a storm water discharge system. Normally, the weeping tile around your home terminates in a basin. This basin is equipped with a sump pump to evacuate the water. As a sump pump is a mechanical device that may malfunction or break. In the event of a malfunction, rain water will accumulate and fill the basin and the weeping tile. Water will then continue entering the home creating a flood. Some people may also experience seeping water through foundations when water accumulates in their weeping tile. Some systems may have alarms to warn you that the pump is malfunctioning or the water level in the basin is dangerously high. In the event where no warning was issued, call your service team 24/7 to fix your issue whenever it happens so damages and cost don’t accumulate.
