Have you checked your sump pump?

With all of the spring rain a burden is placed on a home’s sump pump.  Sump Pumps are generally located in a home’s basement or crawl space.  They are designed to remove the ground water from around your home out to a perimeter area, and away from your home.  The City of Greenwood is offer homeowner’s grant money to make sure their home’s sump pumps are not tied into the sanitary sewer system.

City of Greenwood is asking homeowners to check sump pumps.

The City of Greenwood is asking homeowners to check their sump pumps to make sure they are properly connected.  Plumbing Code requires a sump pump discharge line to be separate from the sewer line.  The burden of discharging into a sewer line is the amount of volume placed on the system.  When a system is overloaded it will back up into basements and crawl spaces.  The backup is dirty water since it’s a combination of sewer contaminates. Check out the WTHR Story.

Kelson Carter of Carter’s My Plumber explains how a Sump Pump line works

Kelson Carter - Carter's My Plumber

Kelson Carter points out the Sump Pump Discharge line to WTHR Camera Crew.

Whenever you flush the toilet, that wastewater is treated. But storm water is different. When it rains, that water doesn’t need to be cleaned.

“And it goes out at least 10-20 feet away from the house, so it’s getting the water away,” explained Kelson Carter, of Carter’s My Plumber, as he showed us a properly installed sump pump at a Johnson County home. “So it’s just ground water. It’s fresh ground water that’s just getting pumped out and put back outside.”

Grant money available for Greenwood Residents

If you suspect your home’s sump pump is incorrectly tied into a sewer line, you may be eligible to get grant money to hire a licensed Plumber to reroute the line properly.  If you would like to take advantage of the grant and live in the City of Greenwood, you may call 317-887-4711 for more information.
