Common Reasons for Sump Pump Repair or Replacement:
Set inside a basin or pit that’s dug into your subfloor, sump pumps push groundwater out through a one-way valve. A switch is activated by a float when water in the pit rises to a certain level. So why do sump pumps fail?
- Lack of Maintenance: Homeowners should check the pump’s functionality and float every three months
- Power Outages: Pumps will not work during an electrical outage
- Broken Switch: A faulty switch means the float will be ineffective
- Incorrect Sizing: Small pumps might work in mild weather but not during larger storms
- Clogged Parts: Dirt and silt can jam the impeller and make the motor work harder
Our local plumbing installation service team can replace sump pumps and the connected piping to ensure that water reliably flows away from your foundation.
Battery Backup Systems
Power outages often occur during severe weather, which means your basement’s sump pump may be left inoperable at the moment in which you need it most. That’s why many homeowners turn to sump pump battery back-ups. We can help you choose the type and volume of pump best suited to your home and install it efficiently, so you can have peace of mind.
Sump Pump Installation
If you’re considering sump pump installation, you need a unit large enough to handle your home’s usual water volume. Most homeowners only need a 1/3 horsepower model, which can pump out about 2,000 gallons per hour. If your area is prone to flooding, a ½ horsepower model can pump about 3,000 gallons per hour. Our plumbing specialists can knowledgeably discuss your options for your basement or crawlspace.
