How Do I Know if My Sump Pump is Working?

Learn how to check that your sump pump is working and a solution for making sure your basement is protected if your sump pump fails or the power goes out.

Learn from one of our basement repair experts, Aaron, about how to check that your sump pump is working (or not working) and a solution for making sure your basement is protected if your sump pump fails or the power goes out.

Most basement waterproofing systems rely on a sump pump as the final mechanism to get the water out of the basement. The sump pump is the heart of the system! If the heart stops for any reason, your basement gets flooded, despite your time, effort, and money.

In addition to checking your sump pump regularly, consider the UltraSump back-up pump. When your primary pump fails because of a power outage or other reason, the water rises and automatically turns on your UltraSump back-up system, which is powered by a battery specifically designed for long-term standby use. When power is restored, the battery is automatically recharged for the next emergency. The high-tech charging system was engineered for this purpose.

You can rest easy 24-hours a day knowing the UltraSump is on the job, especially when you are away from home. Its outstanding 2000 gallon per hour output, automatic electronic "smart" charger, heavy-duty motor, and reliable switch are a winning combination.

Our outstanding service team is ready to help ensure your sump pump is working optimally with regular maintenance. Ask your Service Technician about our Thrasher Care Club maintenance program, more information about the UltraSump, other waterproofing, foundation repair, or concrete repair needs. We're happy to help!
