As with any home system, and particularly so when it comes to plumbing, it’s best to avoid problems completely and optimize your system for perfect performance.

A Battery Back Up Can Help Your Sump Pump Run—Even When The Power Is Out
Schneller & Knochelmann also installs sump pump battery backups in the Cincinnati area. In the Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati areas, heavy thunderstorms are not only common but expected. And heavy thunderstorms bring high winds and lightning. As a result, power will go out during many thunderstorms. Because your sump pump runs on electricity, a power outage could render your sump pump useless at the very time you need it the most.
That’s why you need a battery backup sump pump. Not only does it work when your main sump pump doesn’t, but it also acts as a secondary pump in case your primary pump gets overwhelmed. The battery backup also has an alarm that alerts you should there be any problems with the battery, connections, or a clogged pump. The backup sump pump protects against:
- Power outage
- Primary sump pump failure
- Excessive water inflow

FAQs About Sump Pumps
Can Sump Pumps Be Repaired?
Floats, check valves, impellers, and other components can fail over time. When components within the sump pump fail, our team can repair or replace these to return the system to full operation.
How Many Years Does a Sump Pump Last?
A well-maintained sump pump will provide reliable operation for around 10 years.
What Causes Sump Pump Failure?
Power outages and damaged electrical wires are the most common causes of sump pump failures. Other common causes of failure include improperly installed or improperly sized sump pumps, overloading, frozen or clogged discharge pipes, and old age.
How Do I Keep My Sump Pump Clean?
Sump pumps require regular cleaning, at least once per year in most cases. To clean the sump pump, disconnect the pump from the discharge pipe and take the pump outside to rinse it off with a garden hose. You will want to be sure to remove any caked-on debris. Next, drain the standing water from within the sump pit (usually easiest with a shop vac), then dry the sump pump before reconnecting it to the discharge pipe.
How Long Does a Sump Pump Installation Take?
Switching out an old sump pump usually takes an hour or two. Before any installation, we will thoroughly assess your needs and provide you with a reliable estimate that includes the expected duration and steps required to complete the sump pump installation in your home.
