York County Sump Pump and Battery Backups

Pennsylvania’s diverse topography, including river valleys, lowlands, and areas prone to runoff, makes flooding an occasional fact of life for residents. Riverine flooding is particularly troublesome in York County, where water bodies such as the Susquehanna River and Codorus Creek can quickly swell beyond their banks. Additionally, heavy rainfall, especially during severe weather events or tropical storms, can lead to flash flooding and localized flooding in low-lying areas of the county.

Given the geographical and climatic factors in York County, homeowners need practical and prudent options to keep their homes dry. Sump pumps are among the best investments for York County residents to waterproof their properties. Battery backup systems, combined with regular sump pump maintenance and testing, ensure waterproofing effectiveness during critical times and power outages.

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.
