Diagnosing Repairs for Sump Pumps

The best sump pump repair is the one that doesn’t involve a plumbing emergency. Too many of our clients call us amid a plumbing emergency when their sump pump suddenly stops working. That can occur more frequently after heavy bouts of rain or when plumbing systems simply break down.

We partner with property owners to conduct regular sump pump repair and maintenance to avoid these types of emergencies. No, question, we’ll be there when emergencies happen, but we prefer saving you time and money by doing the work before something bad happens. Sump pumps are usually low-maintenance plumbing devices. However, you need to check on them regularly because they’re very important to the running of your plumbing system. You need to have the confidence they’ll kick in when water levels get high enough to threaten your home or business.

Sump Pump Installation

Installing a sump pump looks fairly simple but doing it right involves many steps and a lot of experience. Some of the most common sump pump failures are a result of how they were originally installed. Our expert plumbers look at various factors and make any necessary corrections such as:

  • Cleaning the bottom of the pit to avoid excessive mud or debris from clogging the intake
  • Making sure the switch turn-on height is correct
  • Adjusting pump location to reduce stress on piping
  • Re-sealing lids on pits with radon systems
