What is a sump pump used for?

Sump pumps are waterproofing systems and your first line of defense against a basement flood. Our waterproofing systems remove accumulated water and discharge the water safely from your home.
There are two types – pedestal and submersible:

  • The pedestal version has a motor mounted above the sump.
  • The submersible group has the engine inside the sump and is sealed to prevent electrical short circuits.

How long do waterproofing systems last? Typically five to ten years for submersible, and 25 to 30 years for the pedestal. However, our models are designed to last. We can ensure your device lasts longer while performing better than our competitors through our annual maintenance program.

What makes a good sump pump?

  • Alarm – An alarm can alert you to any internal failings, such as a power outage, and allow you to respond before your basement floods
  • Sump Liner – A liner reduces the risk of clogs caused by pests and debris. Additionally, a liner provides protection in the form of heavy-duty, reinforced plastic
  • Sump Lid – An airtight lid keeps odors and humidity out. Furthermore, a cap offers added protection from debris
  • Pump Stands – Pump stands raise your device above the bottom of the liner. This elevation protects your device from any silt or sediment that settles on the bottom of the pit
  • Discharge Line Protection – Sump pump discharge lines can freeze during the winter. Discharge line protection keeps lines running despite clogging or cold temperatures
  • Battery Backup – Backup batteries for your device keep things running even when the power fails

Luckily, The Basement Doctor Columbus offers multiple patented systems, including the above features.
