Gettysburg Sump Pump and Battery Backups

Pennsylvania is a flood-prone state with steady rain, often from Atlantic coast storms, drenching the region every year. One of the most famous downpours was undoubtedly the squall that soaked Robert E. Lee’s retreating army after his defeat at the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863. Ninety years later, in 1953, our founder started Oriole Basement Waterproofing to relieve Gettysburg property owners trying to stay dry in this precipitous climate.

In flood-prone areas, sump pumps are one of the best investments property owners can make. These devices work around the clock to ensure your basement stays dry. Paired with a battery backup system, they help prevent flooding even during power loss. Sump pumps catch and remove water from dwellings, providing peace of mind and safety for your Gettysburg property.

Here is an excellent example of what happens without a battery backup system:

And here is a video showing that the power is still out, but the new battery backup we installed gets the sump pump going again:

The sump pump system works with an interior basement drainage system to pump the water out of your home. It is the main component of your basement system; if it fails, you won’t be able to get the water out of your house.

Because of that, we use and recommend Zoeller sump pumps as they are the best brand out there. However, we are familiar with all types of sump pumps and are happy to repair existing pumps if possible.

The great thing about sump pumps is they are automatic thanks to a float or switching device. When water accumulates to a certain point, the sump pump will automatically run and pump the water out. As the water decreases, the float will go back down, eventually turning the sump pump off. You don’t have to worry about being home to catch it in time.

It’s important to have a professional installation for your sump pump pit and hardware. You want to make sure the pump is installed correctly so that it turns on and off automatically. You also want to ensure that basement drainage system is properly channeling water into the sump pump pit so that it may be collected and pumped out.

Oriole Basement Waterproofing has been installing and servicing sump pumps and battery backups for decades. Whether you are in need of an entirely new basement drainage system, or are interested in a newer and more efficient pump to save on energy costs, we can help!
