Who Needs a Sump Pump?

Many Bienvenu Brothers customers ask us about the use of sump pumps. The most common usage for a sump or sewage pump is in basement plumbing and septic systems. If you have a toilet located in a basement, you will need a sump pump due to the piping’s location below ground. Septic systems also require a sump pump to help break down and pump the waste from your home. Many homeowners who do not have access to public sewers use a sump pump.

Maintaining your sump pump and sewage system is crucial to prevent costly repairs and avoid potential health hazards. Regularly inspect the pump for any signs of wear or damage, such as strange noises or leaks. Ensure that the discharge pipe is clear of debris and properly directed away from your home's foundation. Consider installing a battery backup system to keep your sump pump operational during power outages. Lastly, schedule professional maintenance and cleaning at least once a year to ensure optimal performance and longevity of your system.

How Do I Get a Sump Pump?

When you are looking to have a sump pump or sewage pump installed, you need to call a professional. This is not the type of DIY job you would want to try. Installing a sump pump can be dirty, smelly, and very technical. The last thing you want is for sewage to back up into your home. Call the experts at Bienvenu Brothers, and let us assist you with your sump pump installation or repair. We are happy to answer any questions or concerns you have about the process.

What is the Most Common Cause of Sump Pump Failure?

The most common cause of sump pump failure is power outage. If you’re in an area that is prone to losing power, make sure your sump pump is hooked up to a generator to ensure it won’t fail in the event the power goes out.

How Do I Know What Size Sump Pump I Need?

Most sump pumps are sold based on the basis of the motor’s power. A .33-hp sump pump is standard. If your home had a sump pump installed when you bought it, chances are that it is this type of model. If you have questions about utilizing a weaker or stronger sump pump, give us a call.

Is Installing a Sump Pump Difficult?

You’ll need a fairly high degree of skill in order to install your own sump pump and a decent amount of time. It’s much better to replace your sump pump before it goes out rather than after it fails and you have a mess on your hands. If you have questions about installing a sump pump, call Bienvenu Brothers.
