Types of Sump Pumps
Submersible Sump Pumps
A sump pump is installed at the lowest point of your basement or crawl space. Installed around your home's foundation is a perimeter drain system where ground water collects and is deferred to a sump pump pit. A submersible pump sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is triggered by a float switch. When water levels rise and trigger the switch, the pump moves the water to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. Your sump pump is your best line of defense against flood damage in your basement. Because the same storms that bring a lot of extra water into the drainage system also tend to knock out the power, it is recommended to install a battery backup for your sump pump.
Water Powered Backup Sump Pumps
A water powered sump pump is a great alternative to a batter backup sump pump if you have access to municipal water. When your power goes out, it switches to the use of town water to power the pump, keeping your basement safe and dry until power is restored. Water costs will go up when the unit is in use, however, compared to the cost of a flooded basement, it's well worth the investment and will never need a battery.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Cleaning your sump pit is an essential step in sump pump maintenance. To clean the sump pit, remove dirt, gravel, and other debris to increase the efficiency of the pump. Your discharge line opening should be free of obstruction so that the water can be pumped through the line and out of your basement/crawlspace. It's important to test your sump pump regularly to be sure your home is ready for the next big rain. To test the pump, pour a bucket of water in the pit. The pump should remove the water and shut off shortly after. You'll want to be sure the check valve and float aren't stuck.

Step By Step Sump Pump Installation
When we install your sump pump, we start by scouting the best location, usually in the basement or lowest point of your property. We dig a pit of the appropriate size to house the pump, ensuring it's well-suited to handle the water volume. Once that's set, we carefully place the pump inside the pit, making sure it's level and secure.
Connecting the discharge pipe comes next. We position it to guide water away from your foundation, crucial for preventing water damage. It's important to us that the pump is correctly installed and that any additional components, like a check valve, are in place for optimal functionality.
Before we finish up, we always conduct thorough tests. We pour water into the pit to ensure the pump activates as expected and efficiently removes the water. Plus, we'll guide you through basic maintenance steps, emphasizing the importance of regular checks to keep your pump in top shape.
Our goal is to ensure your sump pump installation is not only effective but also provides you with peace of mind, knowing your property is better protected against potential water issues.
