In Will and Kendall counties in Illinois, there’s a city that’s been dubbed as the fastest growing in the Chicago metropolitan area. Joliet, the fourth most populated city in Illinois, is a Des Plaines River town and expands up to the DuPage River.
With its proximity along rivers, and its annual precipitation of nearly 37 inches a year, most Joliet residents need a sump pump to control flood levels in their basements or crawl spaces.
However, given time, all sump pumps fail and even the finest back up sump pump won’t be able to handle flooding on their own. With flooded basements being the cause of many structural issues and health risks, no one should be without a main sump pump for too long.
Solutions to Sump Pump Failure
If your main sump pump has failed, you can try to have it repaired, and if it still works, then that’s great. However, if your pump is too old and repairs are too costly, it’s time to have your sump pump replaced.
For advice on sump pump replacement, call a Perma-Seal professional to help guide you as to which pump is right for your home. Pump failure may be caused by too much strain, so getting a more powerful or efficient pump might be the best course of action. A Perma-Seal professional can show you your options to ensure that your basement stays flood-free even in the nastiest of weather.
