Landscaping should be graded so that rainfall flows away from the foundation. Even then a downpour can lead to seepage if not a deluge from any break in a basement’s sealing. A burst water heater or broken pipe can also flood in a matter of minutes. Sump pumps take care of that. As a matter of fact, it involves more than just a pump: there is the sump itself (more commonly called a pit or basin), a float sensor and controller, a discharge line, and (ideally) a battery backup. There are two main types of assembly.
- Submersible Placed within the pit they operate underwater. With water cooling, they are more energy-efficient and completely sealed they last longer, but they are more expensive.
- Pedestal Mounted These are less expensive as well as easier to install and maintain. But they are a bit of an eyesore, and a bit noisier.
Sump Pump Maintenance
It is easy to forget about appliances you rarely use. But a sump pump is one you absolutely want to work properly should you ever need it. An annual professional inspection is a good idea. You can also do a quick inspection and test yourself. That is an especially good idea when there is a forecast of a major storm. First of all, make sure there is no debris that might cause a clog. Then, check that electrical and mechanical connections are in good condition. Pour 2-3 gallons of water into the sump pit. If the pump does not turn on and eliminate the water in well under 5 minutes you have a problem. Additionally, there should be no unusual sounds or vibration.
Our sump pump services are handled by expert trouble-shooters. Whether it is just a clog or a burnt-out motor they can quickly diagnose the problem and go straight to the right repair. Other common problems include a failed sensor (with the motor either not turning on or running constantly), loose or corroded electrical connections, buzzing or grinding bearings, and foul odors from the pit or sump discharge.
If there has been serious damage or extensive wear and tear, our plumbing repair specialists are experienced in sump pump replacement. Leading brands include Goulds, Little Giant, and Zoeller.
Installing Sump Pumps
Our team is also ready to install a new sump pump system of just the right size for your home or business. That includes locating a roughly 3-foot gravel pit near where water is likely to enter (but not too close to the exterior foundation) as well as proper connection to a sewer or a separate discharge line, as local regulations require.
