What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a kind of technology that is effective at removing water that has collected in a home, commonly the basement. While not every home will have a sump pump, they are pretty common in areas where flooding is a possibility. Sump pumps function by sending the water that is accumulated away from the house and back into municipal care such as in a storm drain.

What is a Sewage Pump?

While a sewage pump is similar to a sump pump in function, there is a very important distinction between the two. While a sump pump is responsible for removing water from an area of your home, a sewage pump is responsible for removing — you guessed it — sewage. A sewage pump is a must in any building that has a bathroom. If you find yourself installing a new bathroom then you will need to install a new sub sewage pump.

Why Invest in Frequent Inspections of Your Sump Pump and Sewage Pump?

Neither a sump pump nor a sewage pump is something that can you allow to sit idly by. In fact, the maintenance of these systems is essential to keeping your sump pump and sewage pump functioning. A conservative estimate is to have your sump pump and sewage pump inspected every year.

Although this may seem like a lot on paper, consider this: given the very nature of its placement, the average sump pump is incredibly susceptible to the accumulation of various debris types including dirt, sand, and other natural matters. These can cause an obstruction or a clog that can impact your sump pump or sewage pump's ability to do its job. If your sump pump or sewage pump has to act more fervently to do its job, there's a chance that it might overheat and break down. Frequent inspections can not only help prevent floods but they can also prevent an expensive sump pump replacement.
