Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps are installed in the basement or crawlspace to prevent flooding. Pumps are installed in a pit, which is known as a sump pit. When the water level begins to rise, the pump turns on and pumps the water out safely away from your home. The sump pit is situated at the lowest level of the basement or crawlspace.
The main types of sump pumps are submersible pumps and pedestal pumps. Submersible pumps are located in the pit under the waterline, while pedestal pumps have the motor outside of the water. There are advantages and disadvantages to each type of pump. A battery backup is recommended to ensure the pump turns on when the power goes out in a storm. We can help you select the right sump pump for your home and complete the installation.
Sump Pump Repair & Maintenance
A sump pump only activates when the water rises to a certain level. Sometimes the homeowner doesn’t realize there is a problem with the pump until it fails to come on and the basement floods. Sump pumps need to be properly maintained to work reliably and ensure that your home is protected. The frequency that maintenance is needed depends on the climate, water table, and how heavily the pump gets used.
During routine maintenance, it is important to clean the:
- Activation switch
- Check valve
Our technicians will clean and inspect your sump pump to make sure it is working properly. We can recommend a regular maintenance program that is best suited to the needs of your property. In most cases, annual inspection and maintenance is sufficient for ensuring reliable sump pump operation. We provide repair and maintenance for all types of sump pumps.
