Typically there is a basin in your basement, or possibly a crawlspace. This basin collects water from the perimeter drains of your basement waterproofing which funnels into the basin. Natural water drains into these basins and occasionally become overfull and needs to be pumped away.

Sump Pump Backup
Many residential and commercial properties have a sump pump backup. Typically this is a battery backup system that kicks on when the power goes out. Usually if there is a power outage, it is temporary. Unfortunately bad storms are associated with power outages, which in turn can result in flooded area’s due to heavy rainfall. Having a sump pump backup system can prevent flooding in your home.
Sump Pump Failures
Many reason can contribute to the failure of a sump pump, remember the typical sump pump runs off the electricity inside your home. A blown fuse, or a tripped circuit inside your breaker box can be a simple and easy fix for you. Now, if for instance you have a heavy storm, and you have a power outage. This is the perfect combination for a flooded basement if you do not have a proper battery powered backup sump pump or water powered backup sump pump. Heavy rains fill up the basin and if there is no power, the water will flood right into your basement or crawlspace. This can be quite devastating for many individuals as many of us keep personal items stored in our basements and crawlspaces. Those who have finished basements can end up suffering much more costs and damages, as you must dry the structure properly. Without proper drying mold can grow, and cause severe health problems.
