Having a basement in your Camden County or Burlington County home means fighting a constant battle against water. A heavy storm or snowfall can inundate the ground around your home with water, which will then find its way into your basement.
A sump pump prevents major damage to your basement by managing this water and pumping it back out of your basement, rendering it harmless. This electric pump is placed in a pit in your basement, where it collects incoming water. When the water reaches a certain level, the sump pump removes it from your home.
Frequent sump pump testing is essential to protect your basement effectively. Otherwise, you may not realize that your sump pump isn’t working until your basement has floods during a big storm.

How to Test Your Sump Pump
You should test your sump pump periodically to ensure that your basement stays safe from flooding. To test your sump pump, find the sump pump pit in your basement. Pour a 5-gallon bucket of water into the pit. This should cause the pump to activate and drain the water. If it does not drain all the water, call Len The Plumber right away for repair service!
Battery & Water-Powered Backups
A backup system can ensure that your sump pump will still work during a power failure, which is common during heavy storms and snowfall. Our technicians offer two types of sump pump backups: battery or water-powered.
- Sump pump battery backup – This backup system is powered by a large battery and kicks on when the power goes out, allowing your sump pump to continue pumping water our of your basement even if a storm causes a power outage. This type of backup is ideal for those on a well system.
- Water-powered sump pump backup – This innovative backup system is powered by your home’s water supply, meaning you never have to worry about a battery going bad or running out. For those on city water, this is a great second line of defense during a power failure.
Protect Your Home from Water Damage
Many homeowners feel a false sense of security simply because they have a sump pump. The truth is that failing to inspect and test your sump pump regularly can lead to flooding and extensive water damage to your home’s foundation. Going without a backup system also leaves you vulnerable in a heavy storm with power outages.
