If you have a sump pump but are still experiencing basement flooding, you may have a faulty or broken sump pump problem. While sump pumps are designed to drain additional water within your basement sometimes the system can be overworked. This can be caused by a number of issues including lack of a waterproofing system, poorly designed system, or the system that was installed was not built to handle the amount of water being directed towards the sump pump. In this case the pump will get overworked and eventually break.

Other instances include a simple issue: the pump is faulty from manufacturing or poorly designed. These systems are the forefront of water protection aside from basement drains. When this fails the whole water mitigation fails along with it.

Signs of a Broken Sump Pump

If you are experiencing any of the warning signs below, you may have a broken unit that should be replaced immediately:

  • Constantly running but not moving any water
  • Leaks form around pit or basket
  • Unit isn't coming on at all
  • Noticeable water is sitting above the designated level in the pit indicating it needs to be pumped out
  • Basement or crawl space still floods on a regular basis

Solutions: Replace the Entire Sump Pump

Trying to fix a sump pump is just as costly if not more than the actual price of replacing the sump pump altogether. When you need a new sump pump installed there's no better option than our patented design.

Depending on the severity of water and the conditions that are causing other additional problems, we may recommend one of our waterproofing systems.
