Addison IL Sump Pump Installation
Keep Your Chicagoland Basement from Flooding
The most crucial plumbing component in your Chicago home is a sump pump. Sump pumps are pumps used to remove water that has accumulated in a water-collecting sump basin, often found in the basement or cellars of homes and businesses. Due to the mechanical environment, pumps need to be monitored and replaced periodically. The experienced team at Drip Drop Plumbing can handle all sump pump installations and repairs.
A faulty sump pump can be devastating. It’s important to protect valuable possessions in your basement or crawl space from water damage. Due to the fact the sump pump is so important, many of them are equipped with battery back-ups. It is very important that water is pumped away from your home during a rain storm, and if your home experiences a power outage or pump failure, a battery back-up would provide a way to protect your basement from water damage.
Sump Pump Maintenance & Testing
It is a good idea to test your sump pump regularly to make sure it is in good operating condition before the next big rainstorm occurs. To test your pump, fill up your basin or pit manually by pouring water into your pit until your ejector pump is activated. Make sure your sump pump pit is clear of any rocks, dirt, or debris. Also, make sure the discharge line does not have any sort of flow restrictions and that your check valve is moving freely and properly.
If you are uncomfortable testing a sump pump on your own, feel free to call the pros at Drip Drop Plumbing and we will make sure your system is working properly!

Is It Normal For A Sump Pump To Run Every 15 Minutes?
After a heavy rainfall it is perfectly normal for a sump pump to run on and off for 2-3 days after the rain. But if the sump pump continues to run long after the rain, it's possible there's something wrong with the sump pump.
