If your business is located in an area prone to flooding, a sump pump is the standard line of defense when it comes to prevention. It is important to make sure your sump pump is always operating properly in order to reap the full benefits of flood prevention. Heavy rains, storm drain backups, and broken pipes can potentially cause serious damage to your commercial property and its contents, as well as safety issues for the building’s inhabitants. Even if the area is not necessarily prone to flooding, these other issues can cause flooding, and in the long run, you will be best protected from damages by maintaining a fully functional sump pump on your premises.
Sump pumps are generally installed in the lowest point of the building, waiting to receive water that has found its way into the building. The water is directed to a sump pit, where it is sent out of the building and away from the inventories, equipment, furniture, and other items that may be inside your building. Hotels, apartment buildings, and other commercial properties sometimes install elevator sumps to prevent flooding in elevator shafts. The sump pump, triggered by a float switch, turns on when the water reaches a pre-determined level. The sump pump removes water by pumping it to an approved area.
You can schedule an LA Metro Plumbing professional to come out and test your commercial sump pump to ensure that it will operate properly when the next big downpour occurs. Some of the pumps and accessories we make available are:
- Submersible pumps
- Sewage effluent sump pumps
- Grinder sump pumps
- Alarms and floats
Sump pumps will eventually wear out and need replacement, depending on how often the pump operates. Replacement pumps are necessary in instances where the sump pump has passed its limits.
Consider a backup
Having a backup sump pump will protect your property in the event. that you experience a power outage for an extended period. Also, if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water powered backup systems (that uses water supply pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will protect your property against flooding. You can also protect yourself from property damage with a backup sump pump system in cases of excessive inflow of water, stuck floats, and broken impellers. An LA Metro Plumbing plumber can recommend several options to meet your cost and time requirements.
