Battery backup sump pumps
Battery backup sump pump’s will provide you with peace of mind in the event that your existing sump pump were to fail. This is not uncommon. Every time Ottawa gets a big rain, or the snow starts to melt, our phones seem to light up with people whose sump pump is not working. Often times a battery backup sump pump would have saved the Ottawa home. Some people will live in an area that has a high water table. In these areas it doesn’t matter if it’s raining or not. If the power goes out and you don’t have a battery operated back up sump pump, you are probably going to have some puddles in your basement. It is not overly expensive to have a battery backup pump installed, so we always recommend it to anybody who requires a regular sump pump.
Weeping tile is an integral part of a properly functioning submersible sump system. If your weeping tile is not working properly, your pump will struggle to remove the water from around your foundation effectively. If you have noticed some water damage coming through your floor, and your sump still seems to be working properly, you most likely have a blocked weeping tile. Especially if your house was built pre-1975 They used to use clay weeping tile, and the problem with the clay weeping tile is that over the years it has become very brittle. We rarely see a home with a functioning Clay weeping tile anymore.
