Sump pumps are highly effective at remedying a wide range of problems, such as leaks and basement flooding. These submersible pumps sit at the bottom of sump pits and are designed to remove water from crawlspaces and basements. As ground water around your property is channeled into a drain system, it is diverted to the sump pit. When the sump pump float switch is triggered, it removes water by pumping it into a nearby storm drain, detention pond, or dry well. There are two primary types of sump pumps, including those hard-wired into a home’s electrical system and those plugged into electrical outlets. If your sump pump is experiencing problems, we provide professional sump pump repair and installation services.
Reasons for Sump Pump Repair
Sump pumps can experience a number of problems during the water removal process. Over time, sump pumps can become clogged with sediment and other debris, causing poor filtration or the complete stopping of the machine. Sump pumps can also succumb to electrical issues that can affect the functioning of the pump. When you contact us for sump pump repair or installation, we’ll repair or replace your sump pump and get your system back up in running.
Replacing a Sump Pump
If your existing sump pump is faulty and cannot be repaired, replacement may be necessary. Some residential homes are more prone to flooding than other, requiring a well-functioning sump pump to avoid an accumulation of water. Homes that were built with poor drainage, have low water tables, or are in areas that receive heavy rainstorms throughout the year are ideal candidates for upgraded sump pumps. Don’t wait until your faulty sump pump causes structural damage to your home before having it repaired or replaced.
Test Your Sump Pump Regularly
To ensure that your sump pump remains in good-working condition, it’s important to have it regularly inspected and tested. By performing preventative maintenance on your sump pump, you can rest assure that it is ready when the next heavy rainfall or flooding occurs. Sump pumps should also be cleaned on a regular basis to remove any gravel, sand, dirt, and debris that has accumulated. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact us today.
