Sump Pump Installation and Repair
Because basements and crawl spaces can be moist environments with the potential to flood, ensuring that your sump pump is working properly is vital to protecting your belongings and property. Sump pumps are designed to reroute water so that it goes away from your home's foundation and isn't able to make its way into your home.
Sump pumps are commonly installed in new homes that have basements. Some older homes in MA or NH, however, don't have a sump pump currently installed. If they do have one, it might need to be replaced due to age or malfunction. One of our sump pump installers will be able to get your new one up and running in no time.
Sump pump issues can arise for many reasons. Malfunctions can be caused by anything ranging from improper installation to a clogged pump. At Emergency Sewer & Drain Repair, whether you need sump pump maintenance, repair or installation, we can take care of it for you.
Types of Sump Pumps
Sump pumps can be located in a number of areas, and they're divided into two main categories:
- Pedestal: The pedestal sump pump is located above the sump pit. This location offers an easy access point for both testing and servicing.
- Submersible: The submersible sump pump is located inside of the sump pit. Because it's situated in the pit, it's more difficult to access than the pedestal version.
Both the pedestal and the submersible sump pumps tend to be connected to an electrical system or wall outlet.
Why You Should Consider Installing a Sump Pump
Having a working sump pump is crucial to preventing flooding caused by heavy rain or snow. If flooding happens due to a plumbing issue, you could be looking at mold growth and water damage. Eventually, untreated flooding can even lead to structural damage in your home's foundation.
If you're starting to experience water collecting in your basement, your sump pump is most likely the cause of it. To protect your home and avoid costly repairs, either your sump pump will need to be repaired or you'll have to get a new one installed so that you can start siphoning the water out and away from your home.
