Sump Pumps in Broomall, PA

If your basement has ever flooded, you know how much trouble it can be. If your basement floods, you are at risk for a number of problems, including:

  • Structural damage.
  • Mold.
  • Lost belongings.
  • Financial loss.

A sump pump is the solution. It pumps water out of the basement as quickly as it comes in, allowing for your basement or crawlspace to stay clean and dry. But you should only allow professional plumbers to provide sump pump installation, repairs, replacement, or maintenance if you want it to work when you need it.

What You Should Know about Sump Pump Installation

The location of your sump pump is of key importance in getting water out of your home quickly. The pump must be installed in a low point of your basement, so that water naturally flows towards it. Technicians dig a pit in the basement or crawlspace—the sump pit—and the pump is placed inside. A drain leads outside away from the pump.

It’s important that your sump pump is the right fit for your home. Sometimes, the layout of your basement or crawlspace calls for a specific type of pump. Other times, you have an option between two types of pumps.

  • Submersible pumps are submerged in the sump pit in a waterproof encasement. They tend to be more powerful and quiet.
  • Pedestal pumps perch above the pit, with a hose leading into the sump. This type of pump may have a longer lifespan, and is often more cost–effective.

When to Call for Sump Pump Repair in Broomall, PA

One problem with sump pumps is that you may not know that yours is not working—until it is too late. That’s why it’s important to test your sump pump from time to time to see that it’s working. Checking the outside drain to see that it is not blocked by debris is step one. Then, you should pour a bucket of water into the pit to test the pump.

We also recommend having a professional plumber check up on your sump pump from time to time. We provide sump pump maintenance as part of our plumbing maintenance packages. Call our friendly staff members for more information!
