Active Sump Pump Experts – If Your Sump Pump Runs Frequently, You Want Team Austin

There are homes in Southeastern Wisconsin that would float away if it wasn’t for their sump pumps. These homes are likely cared for by Austin Plumbing, Heating & Air. 

You’ll want Austin to be your sump pump plumber if:

  • Your sump pump runs a lot! Your pump runs a lot if it turns on more than five times per day.

  • You have more than one pump-A telltale sign that you have an active sump pump system is if your sump crock has more than one pump in it.

  • You have a finished basement- Active sump pumps in finished basements require more expertise because of the risk of damage if the sump pump system fails.

Ways We Solve High Groundwater for Our Clients

  • Duplex sump pump systems- Double the power, a duplex sump pump system unites the power of two sump pumps to keep up with spring rains.

  • High water alarm systems- Know when your sump pump isn’t keeping up with a high water alarm.

  • Adjusting sump levels- Many sump pumps cycle far too often because the on and off level on the sump isn’t set correctly. We know how to maximize run times without causing a wet basement.

  • Battery backup sump pumps- For homeowners that can’t be without a working sump pump when the power is out.

  • Sump pump discharge extensions- Many groundwater issues and active sump pumps are amplified by the recirculation of water due to a short or undersized sump discharge pipe.

  • Upgrading to submersible sumps- Upright sump pumps are a low cost and low flow solution to groundwater infiltration. Austin can help you upgrade your above ground sump pump to a more efficient and powerful submersible pump.

Battery Backup Sump Pumps

You need your sump pump most when it’s storming outside. Unfortunately what goes hand in hand with thunderstorms are… power outages. 

For homes that can’t afford to have their sump pump not working during a power outage, a battery backup sump pump solution can be a sensible option. Battery backup sump pump systems provide:

  • Temporary sump pump operation during power outages 
  • Cost effective solution 
  • Piece of mind for folks with moderate and intermittent groundwater infiltration 
  • Many options with different levels and configurations available

How much does a battery backup sump pump cost?

The range for a battery backup sump pump is huge. Going from as low as $500 all the way up to a duplex AC/DC battery backup system for $5000+.

Like everything else, when it comes to battery backup sump systems, you get what you pay for. We have found that cheap battery backup systems are of little to no value. If you have an active sump pump and need the protection a battery system provides, the battery backup system is not the place to skimp on cost!

Common Sump Pump Issues

Sump pumps can encounter issues throughout their lifespan. Some common problems can include:

Power Failures

Without a battery backup, your system will fail to work during a power outage.

Underpowered Pumps

It’s important to ensure your system can handle the demands of your property.

Frozen Or Clogged Discharge Pipe

Avoid serious issues with your unit by making sure the discharge pipes are clean and in proper working condition.

Worn Out Pump Motors

You might need to replace the unit if the motor wears out or malfunctions.

Radon System Sump Pumps

As radon mitigation systems have become more popular in Southeastern Wisconsin, sealed groundwater sump systems have grown hand in hand. Because radon gas is being pulled out of the basement through the drain tile, the groundwater sump is sealed which provides challenging access to the sump pump. Austin Plumbing, Heating & Air can service and replace sump pumps in sealed radon systems and will insure the radon system is functioning properly when we leave.
