Water Damage FAQ. Restoration, Prevention, and More
Check the outlet pipe to make sure it is not clogged or frozen. Follow the pipe and confirm that water are directed away from the property. Check that the pump is clean. Plug in the pump and remove the lid (if there is one). Use a flashlight and look into the pump and see that the inlet pipe is clean and free flowing. Test the pump by pouring at least 5 gallons of water and pumping it out. Be sure to pour the water in a way that will simulate the average flow into the pump.
Frequently Asked Questions About Watchdog Battery Backup Sum...
Anyone who has an AC sump pump. At some point the main pump will fail as a result of a power outage, main pump failure, float switch failure or the inability to keep up with the incoming water capacity. A backup pump is an inexpensive insurance policy eliminating the headaches and cost associated with a flooded basement.
Frequently Asked Questions About Watchdog Battery Backup Sum...
The Basement Watchdog AC/DC Big Dog could be used as the only pump. However, it is recommended that all Watchdog systems be used as backups to provide complete redundancy to the main sump pump. In this configuration, if the main sump pump fails, there is a second pump in the pit ready to take over.

The easiest way would be to get all the information off the mfg. label before ordering a pump. If this information is not available, sizing will have to be done. It is very important to size a pump for proper operation of your system. A wrong pump can cause system damage and backup into the building, etc.

Town of Caledon
Some houses have sump pumps installed in the basement for one of two reasons. First of all, in some areas the storm sewers (which carry rainwater) are at a higher elevation than the weeping tiles which are installed around the bottom of the house foundation wall. In order to get the ground water from the 'weeping tile' out to the storm sewer, the pipe is discharged into the sump pit and then pumped by the sump pump out to the storm sewer.

Answer: If your house is on caissons and the void under the foundation wall is still somewhat in tack it may work for a while. If this void closes up it will only pick up water immediately around the sump pit and pump area only. A sump pump and pit is only to collect water and pump it out of your basement. With out an interior drain system there is no way for the water to get from the opposite side of the basement to where the sump pit and pump are.
City of Batavia - Wastewater FAQ's
A typical neighborhood wastewater pumping station, which is owned and operated by the City of Batavia, is designed to pump around 150,000 gal/day. An illegal sump pump (one that is connected to the sanitary system) could be adding up to 40 gallons per minute of flow. A simple calculation (40 gpm x 1440 min. in a day) tells us that it would only take 3 of these illegally connected sump pumps to use up the entire pump station design capacity.
City of Shaker Heights - Building
Yes, although this is not the approach we recommend. It's not water-proofing, it's water management. The way it works is the contractor drills holes in your foundation to allow water in through the wall, where it is directed into a pipe (inside your basement) that leads to a pump that pumps the water back to the storm sewer system. Internal wall boards, usually made of plastic, are typically installed to conceal the pipes.
Frequently Asked Questions - Eveready Flood Control Ltd.
A sump pump was originally designed to control ground water. The pump is installed at the lowest level of basement floor. It collects the ground water as it accumulates around the house and is usually discharged into the yard. This method is usually effective for controlling seepage. The problem, however, lies with the use of a sump pump (or ejector pump) for preventing sewer back-up.

Usually 1/3 to 1/2 horsepower is sufficient. For the average size basement or waterproofing system these will suffice.
Duetact, A Type 2 Diabetes Treatment: Frequently Asked Quest...
It is important to have your blood sugar and A1C-a measure of your average blood sugar levels over 2 to 3 months-checked regularly by your health professional. You will also need to have blood tests to check for serious or active liver disease prior to starting duetact therapy, and periodically thereafter per the clinical judgment of the health professional. You experience an unusually rapid increase in weight or swelling or develop shortness of breath or other symptoms of heart failure.
The electric pump provides a more constant steady flow of vacuum pressure & thus a more effective pumping session. Fresh airflow is continually being created in the cylinder. The fresh airflow stimulates circulation of continual fresh bloodflow which is critical for maximum engorgement of the penis. You can keep the cylinder on the penis the entire pumping session instead of having to take off the cylinder & massaging fresh bloodflow into the penis as you have to do with a manual pump.
