Woodbridge VA Sump Pump Installation and Repair
Woodbridge and other parts of Northern Virginia experience bad storms throughout the year with heavy rainfall. With all of that rain, large amount of water builds up in a short span of time, which can potentially flood your basement or crawl spaces if you don’t have a working sump pump installed.
In order to test out your sump pump, you can pour a five gallon bucket of water into your sump pit. The motor should start up to empty out the pit. If there are any issues such as the the pump not coming on or it doesn’t empty completely, call Woodbridge Plumbing to have one of our expert plumbers diagnose the problem, and fix or replace your unit.
Avoid Sump Pump Failure With A Battery Back-Up Sump Pump
One time that you will absolutely need your sump pump to be up and running is during a thunderstorm. Unfortunately, as you know, there’s a high chance that you will lose your electrical power during a thunderstorm. If the electricity is out, and your home is being surrounded by heavy rain, flooding is imminent. But you can still avoid flooding even if you lose electricity with a battery back-up sump pump.
The purpose of a battery back-up sump pump is to take over for your regular sump pump in the event that your power goes out. Even if your electricity doesn’t go out, the back-up pump can help support your main pump if its unable to keep up with all of the water coming through it. We highly recommend having a battery back-up sump pump installed for homeowners with finished basements, or for anyone who wants to have the most protection possible against basement flooding.
