Sump Pump ServicesSump pumps are an important part of your home’s foundation. If you don’t have a sump pump your basement can easily fill-up with water at any time. It may be because of a storm or from sewage seeping into the water table. Whatever the cause, having a sump pump installed in your basement can save you from thousands of dollars in damage.
Sump pumps pull water out of your basement and discharge it into your yard, preventing it from damaging your basement, furnishings, and other items you may keep in your basement. If you notice dampness in the walls or floors of your basement, that means there’s a problem with the sump pump – and it’s time to call a plumber. Don’t wait until you have major water damage to find out that you need a professional service.
Sump pumps are only as effective as the maintenance that goes into them. To perform their designated task of keeping your home dry, sump pumps need to be well maintained and serviced annually.
Superior Sump Pump InstallationsThe location for your sump pump should be determined by the grade of your lot and the amount of rain that falls in the neighborhood. It should be located as low as possible, but no lower than 1 foot below the lowest interior floor level. Sump pump installation should be done with a check valve to prevent contaminated water from flowing back into the basement and getting pumped out again.
