These kinds of pumps are often found in the basements of homes that flood often. They typically run on constant electrical power, and most have a battery backup installed in case of a power failure. In order to maintain the health of a sump pump, cleaning is required at regular intervals.

A pump may overflow or otherwise not function correctly if debris has become clogged in the filter. Luckily, a simple cleaning is all it usually takes to fix the problem. Generally, sump pumps are a low-maintenance solution to constant or even periodic flooding from excess rain or groundwater. They can be installed for a fraction of the cost of flood damage repairs and will run for years if properly maintained.
