What’s a Sump Pump?
Most areas throughout the Maryland, DC, Virginia, and Delaware areas have families that depend on home sump pumps to protect their basements.
It is important to know what a sump pump is, what it does, and what you need to do to take properly maintain it.
A sump pump is a pump that is used to drain water that has collected in a sump pit or water basin.
It is either a water powered or electric powered pump.
The water powered pump uses the home’s pressurized water system and doesn’t require electricity.
Because this type of pump is not always operating, it could overflow, especially if the power is out.
A backup sump pump system may also need to be installed.
The electrical pump has a battery backup to ensure it will work for a period of time during a power outage.

|Luckily for us, we called ASAP Waterproofing…
“Growing up my husband and I never had a sump pump, so we didn’t know what we were getting ourselves into. We had no idea that if we didn’t maintain it, it could flood our basement.
After we had a huge snowstorm and it all started to melt, I was startled when I walked downstairs and stepped into 3 feet of water. Later, I was told that it was probably because we didn’t relieve the sump pump when the power was out for a long time.
Luckily for us, we called ASAP Waterproofing and they came out and repaired the damage and told us what we needed to do to prevent this from happening again.”
