Functions and Benefits of Sump Pumps
A sump is a basin or trench at the lowest point of the lowest level of a structure that collects condensation, groundwater seepage, and other moisture. A sump pump is a small pump that removes the accumulated water from the sump. Sump pumps are equipped with a float or timer that periodically activates the pump so that it can remove the water from the sump. When the pump has removed the standing water, it cuts off until the water level rises again.
Sump pumps are beneficial in areas with high water tables and in properties that are located on sites that do not allow water to drain away from the foundation. An adequately operated sump pump prevents flooding that might otherwise cause damage to the property.
Signs of Sump Pump Problems
Like all mechanical devices, sump pumps are made up of moving parts that will eventually wear out. A pump that’s forced to operate for long periods of time during a flood may burn out due to overuse. A pump’s float or timer may fail, or the internal workings of the pump itself may become damaged and may no longer be able to push water from the sump. The drainage line that carries water away from the pump can also develop a leak or become damaged at some point along its length. If not properly insulated, the drainage line or pump can freeze in very cold weather.
The first sign of a sump pump issue is usually a rising water level in the sump or flooding around the sump area. Other indicators of a problem include a pump that runs continuously or a pump that doesn’t cut on even when the water levels in the sump start to rise.

“I tried several companies and Inception was the only one that had a REAL person to answer the telephone. The others had answering machines and not one returned my call. They were prompt and friendly. Discussed the fix and quoted a price. Their employee James was very nice and professional. The problem turned out to be bigger than what we expected, a new price was quoted and the problem was fixed. In the long run, they saved me from what could have been a catastrophe. The boss even showed up to help shovel! Thank you, Inception Plumbing.”
