  BATTERY CORROSION IS A “SYSTEM KILLER.”

 EVEN IF THERE ARE NO ALARMS, ANNUAL CHECK-UPS OF PRIMARY AND BACKUP PUMP SYSTEMS ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, TO ENSURE PROPER OPERATION WHEN PUMPS HAVE THEIR HIGHEST DEMAND.

 CORROSION, LOW BATTERY VOLTAGE, LOW WATER LEVELS IN THE BATTERY, LOOSE FITTINGS/CHECK VALVES, OBSTRUCTED FLOAT SWITCH, AND EXCESSIVE PIT DEBRIS CAN ALL LEAD TO A PUMP FAILURE AND FLOODING.

 NOT ALL PROBLEMS WHICH HINDER PROPER PUMP OPERATION ARE OBVIOUS, OR EVEN VISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE.

 DURING A SERVICE CHECK-UP, WE WILL ENSURE THE FOLLOWING:

  1.   CHECK VALVES ARE TIGHTENED

  2.   NO LEAKING FITTINGS

  3.   BATTERY HOLDS REQUIRED CHARGE

  4.   CORROSION IS COMBATTED

  5.   MAIN PUMP WORKS PROPERLY

  6.   BACK UP PUMP WORKS PROPERLY

  7.   BATTERY CELLS HAVE SUFFICIENT WATER LEVELS

  8.   BACKUP CONTROL PANEL RESPONDS TO FAULTS; ACTIVATES PROPERLY

  9.   FLOAT SWITCHES UNOBSTRUCTED AND OPERATING FREELY

  10. PIT DEBRIS IS MINIMIZED

Water Intrusion

Water is always around the outside perimeter of your basement foundation wall. The reason for this is that we sit on a clay base under the topsoil where your foundation is located.  img

 Our full line of PHCC Pro Series primary pumps are built to run continuously 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 day a year. They are strong and dependable, and when they are used intermittently in a sump application, it extends the life of the pump. img
