The Importance of a Sump Pump
As a local business serving home and business owners in the Cleveland and Akron area for years, we’ve seen time and time again what moisture damage can do to a home. Loss of property, structural damage, costly water damage repairs, mold, and even indoor air quality issues are all common complications. A sump pump addresses these effectively, providing a swift and practical means of keeping standing water and excessive moisture out of basement and utility areas.
How Sump Pumps Work
Blind & Sons installs high-quality submersible sump pumps to stop ground and rainwater from flooding your Cleveland area home. A submersible sump pump is a small unit that sits in your sump pit and uses suction to collect water. When the water level rises high enough, it activates a switch, the pump kicks on and the water is safely removed.
How Many Years Does a Sump Pump Last & How Often Should It Be Replaced?
Sump pumps last about ten years. If you notice it hasn’t been kicking on when the water is rising, you should replace it before the next big storm comes.
How Long Do Sump Pump Battery Backup Systems Last?
The true answer depends on how much water enters your sump basket. A 200Ah battery can operate for 20 hours.

Submersible vs. Pedestal Sump Pumps
Submersible sump pumps are the most common, as they are typically installed when a house is being built. This pump will be submerged underwater in the sump pit below your basement floor. They are conveniently hidden from view, offer more horsepower, and can be used with a backup battery in emergencies.
Pedestal sump pumps come in two pieces: a hose that feeds into the sump pit and the standalone motor, which is installed above the basement floor. These pumps tend to last longer since they are submerged less frequently. They are easy to access and repair to their above-ground installation. However, they are less powerful than submersible pumps (meaning they cannot pump out as much water) and take up valuable space.
Sump Pump Troubleshooting
Though sump pumps, for the most part, need very little in the way of help, they do require some routine basic care in order to stay effective. Additionally, they’re not immune to the rigors of time and general wear and tear. When your pump starts showing signs of trouble it is vital that you get the issues assessed and handled right away, and on this our team can help you, too!
Contact our Northeast Ohio plumbers if you notice:
- Weak suction or failure to remove standing water
