Bearden Sump Pump
For homes and businesses that are at risk of water accumulation in and around their basement or foundations, a Bearden sump pump is the answer. Sump pumps are often installed in areas where there is not sufficient natural drainage, or in areas that have either a high water table or are prone to heavy and prolonged spells of rainfall. Having the ability to remove large amounts of unwanted water can make the difference between a home and business becoming flooded or staying dry.
How does a Sump Pump Operate?
Most Bearden sump pump systems consist of a pumping unit, a pit or tank, and a series of outflow pipes that will help to remove the excess water. The size of the pump and pit that you will need to install will ultimately depend on just how much water will need to be removed. For small volumes of water, a small pump and pit will be sufficient, but for larger collections of water, it is possible that you will need a larger pump and a bigger capacity tank or pit. Traditionally, smaller pumps only have a solitary inlet hole, whereas larger pumps may have several inlet holes, which will allow them to pump away larger quantities of water.
Where to Place the Apparatus
When it comes to installing a Bearden sump pump system, the pump itself always has to be positioned within the pit or tank. The pump has two main parts, the electric motor, and a water level indicator, which usually consists of a float. For automatic sump pump systems, it is the float that will operate the pumps motor, as soon as the water level reaches a certain depth, thus preventing flooding.
Sump Pump Repair
Because water and electricity do not mix, it is important to make sure that if your sump pump begins to malfunction, that you do not attempt to fix it yourself. If there is a problem with your sump pump that requires attention, you should make sure that you call your local Bearden sump pump repair specialist as soon as possible.
Sump pump problems include frozen pipes, worn out motors and obstructions in the outflow pipe, all of which will require immediate attention if you wish to avoid the problems of large amounts of water from flooding your home or business. The float can also become stuck, which could cause the pump motor to run constantly, something that can quickly cause the motor to burn out.
