Howard County Sump Pump and Battery Backups

Sump pumps are instrumental in preventing basement flooding. They help manage excess water, especially during heavy rains or periods of rapid snowmelt, by collecting water in a sump pit and then pumping it away from the foundation. Property owners in Howard County can install sump pumps with battery backups to proactively safeguard their home’s foundation, preventing structural damage and potential mold growth, which can result from prolonged exposure to moisture.

Sump pumps are particularly valuable in areas prone to water accumulation or with a history of basement flooding. Howard County certainly fits that description with evenly distributed precipitation throughout the year. Apart from the pump itself, a battery backup system for the sump pump ensures functionality during power outages, providing continuous protection even in adverse conditions. Overall, sump pumps contribute significantly to maintaining a dry, secure, and structurally sound home.

Oriole Basement Waterproofing provides reliable and efficient sump pump and battery backups in Howard County. Drawing on our extensive waterproofing experience, Oriole offers expert sump pump installation, battery backup systems, maintenance, and commitment to quality and service.

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.
