Sump pumps are a great tool for re-routing water from your home’s lowest point and to protect your home from basement flooding. Homeowners get the most benefits from sump pumps during heavy downpours and to minimize flooding in a basement or lower level when a plumbing problem pops up.

How Sump Pumps Work

The sump pump turns on when the float switch is triggered. The switch turns off when water reaches pre-set levels, and the pump removes the water. The water is rerouted to an outdoor area through a pipe that extends from the side of the house. It can also be rerouted into a storm drain.

What Are the Benefits of Having a Sump Pump?

  • Helps the disposal of drain water
  • Protects against flooding and dampness
  • Prevention of mold and mildew
  • Prevention of sewer backups
  • Better resale value for your home


There are a number of sump pump styles and options available to you and it is important to make sure that you know which options fit your needs. We can help you to choose the system that best suits your home and budget.

  • Pedestal: Installed above the sump pit. A pedestal pump’s mounting is convenient for periodic testing and plumbing maintenance.
  • Submersible: This is a pump that’s out of sight and is installed inside the sump pit.

Replacement and Repair

Your sump pump will eventually run into problems as time goes on, but many of these problems can be avoided by knowing your system and having regular maintenance performed.

What Are Some Common Problems?

  • Clog due to debris in the pipe or pump
  • Motor breakdown due to age
  • Remote starter short out during a flood

Be sure to have your sump pump serviced regularly to avoid preventable issues.
