All about Ejector Sump Pumps

Seasonal Warning: All the water that has been coming down on Chicago as snow, will soon melt.

That water will do what water does, and let gravity do it’s thing, and seek the lowest ground.  Unfortunately, for most of our homes in Chicago, that spot is in our basements.

We get call every year from people who have turned their basements into their family entertainment areas full of expensive electronics, or even worse, stored sentimental family items, who have an ejector sump pump fail.

Not all manufactures are alike.  We know some fail frequently, and often because of not enough use.  So after a Freeze, like we just had, they just don’t even turn on, putting a basement at risk.

A quick way to test the Ejector Sump Pump in your Chicago basement

Do a pour test…
Fill a five-gallon bucket with water and pour it slowly around the sump pump. The pump should turn on once the water level reaches a predetermined level below the basement floor. If the pump doesn’t turn on, it may be either clogged, damaged, or in the case of some manufacturers that we no longer recommend, just faulty.  If it doesn’t kick on and your at a loss as to why… don’t sweat it.
