A sump pump is a pump used to remove water that has accumulated in the sump pit – which is a large sub-surface tub or bin located in your basement, commonly found in the basement of homes. We discuss sump pumps on our basement waterproofing page since sump pumps are connected to interior and exterior drain tile systems to collected rainwater (that falls) or ground water (that rides) into the drain tile. Sump pumps automatically send water away from a house to any place where it falls away from your property. Arrow Foundation Repair is has been a leading sump pump installer in Kansas City for many years. We install sump pumps homeowners and commercial client all around the Kansas City metro area – we’ve installed thousands of sump pumps over the years.


Battery Backup Sump Pumps

Sump Pumps are one of your last lines of defense. You need sump pumps the most when there are heavy storms and rain, yet in these conditions, power can go out which in turn will prevent your sump pump for doing its job. If your sump pump loses power in a storm, it cannot pump drain tile water. Your sump pit would then overflow, flooding the basement area. Battery backup systems are a great way to defend against power failure at the times you need your sump pumps the most.

While is is helpful to keep your sump pit relatively clean, most people do not have their sump systems serviced on a regular basis. Arrow Foundation Repair recommends that Kansas City homeowner replace their basement sump pumps every five years or so. While pumps can last a lot longer, the risk of failure increases safer the fifth year. Since sump pumps are relatively lost cost compared to the protection they provided, most homeowner find that having a well-functioning sump pump is well worth a semi-regular replacement.
