With EPIC snowfall in Grand & Routt County this winter, is your home's sump pump up to the task of keeping your crawl space and basement dry?Steamboat Springs received over 430 inches of snow this winter! ... and the wettest time of year is just around the corner. All this water can keep your home's sump pump working nearly continuously to keep your crawl space and basement dry.
As mechanical things go, we don’t think too often about our home's sump pump. It’s hidden down under home, out of sight - out of mind. But the reality is, your sump pump is often one of the hardest working pieces of equipment in your house.
The cost and inconvenience of a sump pump failure can be highA submersible sump pump removes water year round, and when snow runoff or heavy rains hit the water pump works extra duty keeping your crawl space from flooding. Most Steamboat Springs homes with crawl spaces or basements have a sump pump to aid in drainage. Here are a couple of things to consider:
- Sump pumps are mechanical and will eventually fail. The most common reason for failure is the sump pump switch.
- If your sump pump fails during a rain storm, your basement can flood in a matter of minutes.
- Basement flooding can ruin your furnace, water heater and other mechanical and electrical devices.
- Sump pumps should be checked for proper operation a couple of times per year – pour some water into the sump pit until the submersible pump cycles. This is usually an easy process and only takes a couple of minutes. Don’t wait for a failure during a rainstorm to find out your sump pump doesn’t work.
Again, all sump pumps eventually fail, so you should protect your home with a battery backup sump pump. If you have a finished basement, a battery backup system is essential.
Our experience has been the basic systems tend to fail when you need them most. While you don’t need to spend a fortune, you will find that for a few extra dollars you can get a good quality battery backup sump pump. These systems give you an extra measure of defense. They not only protect your belongings in case of a power failure, but automatically kick in should your primary water pump fail.
Grand Lake Plumbing offers a variety of quality sump pump and backup sump pump system. These systems provide around the clock protection. Grand Lake Plumbing can help you determine which sump pump system is right for your home.
Don't let last winter's epic snowfall lead to flooding in your crawl space or basement. Call for a complete sump pump check-up today.
