The neighborhood directory is coming back!  For those who have been in the neighborhood for a while you may remember our neighborhood directory.  It was a great way to get to know who was living next door to you and a wonderful resource for new members of our neighborhood.  We are partnering with a company to provide us with a new directory at NO COST to our residents or HOA.  Please be on the look out for a flyer and emails about this project.

Tips to Help Keep Your Basement Dry!

posted Aug 31, 2012, 9:06 PM by Bennett Taylor

Water can intrude your basement in many ways, however, the most common way is a failed sump pump.  The following tips certainly don't guarantee a dry basement, but can reduce the probability of walking down the basement stairs and hearing that dreaded 'SQUISH' sound. 

1.  Have a backup sump pump.  All sump pumps will fail.  It is not a matter of if, it's a matter of when.  Many experts recommend having two large AC powered pumps and a third battery back up pump.  Battery backup pumps won't run very long before the battery dies, but often will run long enough to bridge the gap during a typical power outage.  They also don't pump a large volume of water, however, they pump infinitely more than a plug-in pump when the power is out!

2.  Ensure the battery for your backup pump is full of water, healthy, and fully charged.  Most battery backed sump systems have an alarm if the battery is not charging properly, is low on water, or has a poor connection.  If your system does not have diagnostics, you can perform the checks manually.  Check the water level by removing the caps and taking a look.  Remember to wear protective rubber gloves and safety goggles when removing caps.  Always use distilled water to refill a lead acid type battery.  Ensure the terminals are free of corrosion and tight.  Lastly, check it by tripping the level switch and ensuring it runs the pump properly.

3.  Check that the pump is working properly.  Activate the pump and ensure it is not making strange noises and verify the inlet is not obstructed by debris.

4.  Check the float switches.  Ensure they move up and down freely and turn on and off the pump.

5.  Inspect the piping.  Visually look to see that the pipes are not cracked, stressed, or broken.  A working pump will do no good if the plumbing to carry the water outside or to the storm sewer is broken or obstructed.  Don't forget to check the piping in the yard.  You may have a small section that leaves your house and then goes into the ground.  This section is subject to stress from the home and yard settling and often breaks after 3-5 years.

6.  Ensure your check valve(s) is working properly.  In the piping just above the pump, you should see a thicker section of pipe.  This is your check valve and it allows water to be pumped out, but not back in!  If the storm sewer becomes completely full, the water will look for other places to go....  make sure its not back into your basement!  Simply run the pump, and when it stops you should hear a 'thud' as the check valve closes.  You should see no water running back into the pit.  If your piping simply dumps out into the yard or into a storm drain, its possible you don't have a check valve, and this is probably ok.  Most battery backup systems will simply dump out into the yard, as it not only serves as a backup pump, but also a backup path to send water in case the storm sewer is too full accept water from your primary pump.

7.  Plumb your downspouts away from the house.  long plastic tubes connected to the ends of the gutter downspouts, and buried under the yard, with pop up openings, can be installed to direct water from the roof out and away from the house.   This can reduce the amount of water that ends up in your sump pit, often increasing the life of your sump pump and increasing its ability to keep up during very heavy downpours. 

8.    Keep several phone numbers of emergency clean up companies at the ready.  If you do get water in your basement, you will want to act fast.  Having these numbers ready could save you valuable time! 

9.  Ensure you have the proper coverage on your homeowners insurance.  Most insurers offer riders for sump pump failure.  Talk to your insurance agent about specific details on your policy.


Remember, if you have only one pump, your basement will get wet.....  Its just a matter of time until the pump fails.
