What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump turns on only when the water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Sump Pump Installation
If your home experiences a power outage out for an extended period, frequent power outages, or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water-powered backup systems (that use your home’s water supply pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage. A plumber can present several backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Test your sump pump regularly to make sure it will operate when the next big downpour occurs. Test it by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump should turn on, remove the water from the pit, and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Ensure that the float and the check valve move freely.
To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel, and other debris to increase the pump’s efficiency and prolong its life. If you don’t want to do this yourself, our team of plumbing experts is happy to help with your sump pump maintenance.
