Perma-Seal News and Information
Along the shore of Lake Michigan, part of the Chicago metropolitan area, sits Lake Forest. A city in Lake County, Illinois, it has been named a Tree City USA due to its commitment to its community forest. However, there are days when even the profusion of trees can't soak up all the water from precipitation, and basements end up getting flooded.
Granted, precipitation is not the only reason for basement flooding, broken pipes and a rising water table are also culprits. The fact of the matter is, many Lake County basements experience some sort of flooding, which can be a pain. This is why a majority of homes with basements and crawl spaces in Lake County have sump pumps installed. Basically, a sump pump sucks out water from your basement and pumps it away the house. But what happens if it fails?
Backup Sump Pump Installation in Lake Forest, IL Located in Lake County, Illinois, Lake Forest is a city along the shore of Lake Michigan that is part of the Chicago metropolitan area. Named as a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation because of its commitment to community forests, Lake Forest takes pride and protects its trees.
However, sometimes trees can't soak up all the water during rains and inclement weather and basements and crawl spaces still get flooded at times. This is why many residents, if not all, have a sump pump installed. A sump pump is an appliance that basically pumps out water from basement floors and takes it away the home. It's an inconspicuous piece of machinery, yet without it, you will surely notice its absence.

With all of the recent storms, rain and flooding that we’ve had recently in the Chicago area, we’ve had a lot of people contact us about their basement. Many called as they saw their basements filling up with water. No one really plans on waiting until their basement is flooded to take action, but it often happens that way. Most people don’t think of their basement flooding, until they are knee-deep in water. Removing water from your basement and cleaning up a big mess can cost a lot of money and be a big headache. You don’t have to spend thousands on a complete basement waterproofing system to make sure that you’re not caught in a bad situation.
On July 16, 2010, Lou Manfredini featured one of Perma-Seal's (Chicago) products on NBC's Today Show (Today's Home). He says that it is a must have when the power goes out, and we couldn't agree more. Ordinary sump pumps fail when a storm causes your home's electrical system to fail. You need a battery backup to back you up. No one wants a flooded basement - make sure that you have a sump pump that will work under any condition.

A while back, we held an Ugly Sump Pump Contest. We announced our winner last week! Terry Bell from Ottawa, IL is excited about his new sump pump. We will be scheduling an installation with him in the following weeks.
Lots of things around your home require a back-up. For those with a basement, a sump pump is a must and a back-up for that unit is a necessity. Think about all you have down there and then about how most insurance companies either cap the amount they will cover or no longer offer flood insurance. The mistake that most people make is not matching up the backup pumps capacity to the main pump. If your primary pump moves 3,000 gallons of water and hour your backup unit needs to do the same. Another consideration is inspecting these systems on a yearly basis. Standard batteries need to be filled with water yearly, sealed batteries cost more but need no maintenance for 5 years. A good back-up system installed will cost around $2,500.00 but it is worth it. Call Perma-Seal at 800-421-7325 to schedule a FREE evaluation of your sump pump system.
