& Battery Backups

The heavy clay content in Ohio’s soil can lead to slow foundation drainage, standing water, and wet or flooding basements. The Waterworks has been providing expert sump pump repair, maintenance and new installations since 1986.

Signs you may need a sump pump

To avoid basement flooding and foundation disintegration, the sump pump collects foundational ground water and pumps it far away from your home’s perimeter so that the water does not seep through the walls and floor of your basement. Indications you may need a sump pump are:

  • Excessive dampness or standing water in basement

  • Heavy rain or snow accumulation

  • You live in a low-lying area or valley

  • Broken underground pipes

  • A newly re-finished basement

The Battery-Backup.
It’s always a good idea.

Because nature is unpredictable, a battery backup ensures that even if the power goes out or a circuit breaker trips during a torrential rain storm, your sump pump will continue to operate effectively. While these events may only happen once in a blue moon, they do happen, and it’s important to have a failsafe in place.

Also, if you do not do routine maintenance and cleaning, the debris that naturally collects over time can clog the pump, causing a malfunction.
