A sump pump is a device designed to prevent a specific area from flooding, usually a basement or a crawlspace. Those areas are typically located belowground, and have very poor natural drainage. First, a pit is dug at the lowest point of the area to be protected. This pit is called the “sump.” Water that flows into the area will naturally roll downhill and into the sump. The sump pump is then installed either in the sump or directly above it, with a drain pipe running out of the house. Once the water level in the sump rises to a certain point, the sump pump activates and pumps it all out of the house.
Installing a sump pump is not something that should be handled by anyone but a professional. There’s all sorts of different digging, construction, and electrical work involved. At best, a botched sump pump installation will end up with the pump not working. At worst, you could end up electrocuting yourself and causing serious injury or death. We strongly advise against attempting to do any part of sump pump installation, repair, or maintenance on your own. Let us handle it for you, and we’ll make sure that everything goes smoothly and safely.

Proper installation isn’t the only thing a sump pump needs to be successful, though. Like most other systems, a sump pump needs the occasional repair and replacement services.
Typically, the problems a sump pump will face are electrical in nature. A short develops in the circuit that prevents the pump from activating, or sensing that the water level is high enough to trigger it. Since sump pumps qualify as a sort of emergency device, the last time you want to find out about a problem with it is when you need it the most. So, the best thing to do is schedule maintenance for it at least once a year. We’ll examine it for you and make sure that everything is working as it should.
