Cincinnati Sump Pumps and Battery Backup Sump Pumps


The American Society of Home Inspectors shares that over 60% of U.S. homes have underground moisture issues. Many Cincinnati area homeowners are statistically likely to face a basement or crawl space flood at some point.

Flooding in basements and crawl spaces causes significant water damage, with most incidents costing several thousands of dollars to remedy. Flooding below the home poses a risk of structural damage as well as damage to home furnishings and irreplaceable items commonly stored in these areas of a home.

Avoid these ‘what ifs’ and the high price they pose when you have a key piece of plumbing equipment installed in your home – a sump pump. Thomas & Galbraith Heating, Cooling & Plumbing installs, repairs, and maintains sump pumps of all types for Cincinnati area homeowners. Take steps to protect your home today and contact us to learn more about sump pump installation and services.

Sump Pump Repair in Cincinnati

Sump pump failure constitutes a plumbing emergency, as it opens up your home to a greater risk of basement or crawl space flooding. However, most Cincinnati homeowners don’t find out their primary sump pumps have failed until it’s too late – they have flooding and water damage.

Don’t set yourself up to incur the high price of basement flooding and water damage – be proactive regarding sump pump care. It’s easy to forget your sump pump needs attention as it’s hidden out of the way but make a point to inspect the unit each month to determine if you need to call a plumber for repairs.


Maintenance for Sump Pumps

Just as your home’s other critical systems, sump pumps require maintenance to ensure continued performance when it counts. Have your sump pump professionally serviced by a Thomas & Galbraith plumber each year. Each maintenance visit provides the preventive care your unit needs to maintain performance levels when in operation. Your plumber will inspect all pump components, ensure the sump pit is clear of debris that could clog the pump, and verify all battery backup units are properly charged.

When you invest in maintenance care for your sump pump, this service is yet another layer of protection working toward keeping your Cincinnati home’s basement or crawl space dry.

Battery Backup Sump Pumps – a Second Line of Defense

A sump pump is a great solution to protect our homes from flooding, but what happens if: 

  • There Is a Power Outage?
  • The Primary Sump Pump Breaks Down?
  • The Float Switch Malfunction? 

Sadly, the answer is that your sump pump won’t work as it should, and your basement or crawl space may flood.

To prevent this unfortunate situation, you could install a Cincinnati battery backup sump pump. Sump pumps can fail for all kinds of reasons: lack of professional maintenance, loss of power, age, manufacturer defect, component failure; so, a battery backup sump pump delivers an extra level of protection in case you ever need it.

How Do Battery Backup Sump Pumps Work?

Battery backup sump pumps are redundant, serving strictly as a backup should the primary sump pump fail to turn on and/or operate as needed. This pump uses a battery power supply to ensure it has access to power should a utility outage occur. While located next to the main unit, its key purpose is to do the job of the main sump pump in the event of a failure, the battery backup sump pump can also operate to assist the main sump pump if more help is needed to manage rising groundwater levels.

The installation of a battery backup sump pump offers protection for your protective primary sump pump. In the event of a power or mechanical failure, all is not lost – the backup unit continues to do the job of the primary, managing groundwater levels to keep the basement or crawl space dry.
