Sump pumps are often forgotten until you realize how important they really are.
Our team of sump pump repair and installation experts have seen this far too many times. Unfortunately, it usually takes a flooded basement for you to realize that your sump pump has malfunctioned. Your sump basin needs to constantly pump out the moisture in order for your basement to not flood. It can be one of the hardest working appliances in your home, and it is important that you take good care of it with regular maintenance and upgrades.
When you have a perimeter drainage system installed in your home, your sump pump is your main line of defense against a basement flood. If you can’t count on your sump system to be powerful or reliable enough, then you can’t count on a dry basement. And what good is the space if it gets wet?
Your sump pump consists of many moving parts that can wear down or need replacement. Sump pumps are most effective at removing water from under your basement floor when located in the lowest spot of the floor.
Your service technician will begin by checking your sump pump’s float switch and intake for any possible problems. After this, the intake valve and impeller will be cleaned and checked to make sure they are functioning properly.
