Sump Pump Repairs

Reliable Plumbing with No Overtime Fees

Sumps pumps are useful at rerouting water from your house’s foundation. They are also effective at keeping your basement from getting flooded. During heavy rainstorms or when there is overflowing water due to a plumbing issue, sump pumps are useful for reducing flooding. When the sump pump stops working, identifying the issue fast and repairing it as soon as possible is important before the next rainstorm happens or your home might incur serious water damage.

What are the Different Types of Sump Pumps?

There are two types of sump pumps available today:

  • Submersible- This sump pump sits in a well or pit and is out of sight
  • Pedestal- This type is mounted above the pit, which allows for convenient access for periodic testing and servicing.

Typically, sump pumps are plugged into an outlet or hardwired into a home’s electrical system. However, these power sources can sometimes fail during a storm. This causes the equipment to be equipped with a battery as backup power. In the event that your sump pump does not have a backup power yet, Poopy Plumbers can install a battery backup for you.

Key facts on sump pumps:

  • A float switch is used to trigger a sump pump. This sets off when the water present will reach a preset level. Once the level is reached, the sump pump will then start removing water into the storm drain, well, or outdoor area.
  • Sump pumps need to be equipped with water-level alarms that are battery powered to ensure that if there is potential flooding you’ll be duly warned. This is also useful in the event that the overflows or malfunctions.
