Sump Pump Installation & Repair
Common problems such as failed pump or float can be easily solved.
In the local area if your house was built after 1959 the weeping tile is most likely tied to the sewer line through a backflow valve. These valves very often get stuck shut preventing water from draining from your weeping tile and backing water along the perimeter of the basement. This age of construction can also suffer from collapsed weeping tile after many years of soil settling.
Houses built in the 80s started using internal sump pits and pumps and are pumped out to the exterior of the foundation. These systems do not have any backflow issues but still may suffer from a collapsed weeping tile. If the sump pump discharge hose freezes it can burn out the sump pump and allow the sump pit water to overflow into the basement.
Houses built before 1960 may not have any weeping tile or sump system. These basements can be a problem if the water table rises above the basement floor level and may require on the extreme side of digging the basement and installing weeping tile and sump pit system. The least costly would be to install a sump pit and pump but since there is no weeping tile, the pit must be deeper than normal to be effective at all at dewatering.
