Broomall, PA, Sump Pump Services

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.

Contact our team today to get your new sump pump or for complete sump pump services in Broomall, PA. We will make sure that you get the right fit for your home or a solution to your plumbing problems. We have been providing excellent service for 40 years!

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!

“On the suggestion of two separate friends, we called Murphy's to provide an estimate for a few plumbing jobs that needed attention: replacing an outdoor spigot, repair/replace our kitchen sink faucet, replace the garbage disposal unit, see what was causing a sometimes leaking issue from our tub upstairs through to our kitchen downstairs, and replacing the drain mechanism in our bathroom sink. Not only was Mike Rowe there first thing the next morning to look at each of these, he clearly determined what each needed, provided a detailed estimate, the option to purchase a contract (we did, which provided discounts to that day's work as well a walk-through annually to inspect plumbing throughout the house), and then was available to start the work right then. In a matter of hours, he had repaired and replaced all, always ready to explain each step. It has been such a pleasure to have these things working properly again! Thank you, Mike and Murphy's!”

The pipes for our shower were leaking, so they replaced some of the pipes and faucets in the shower. They also installed a shut off valve for the utility sink in the basement which was leaking a steady stream. It went very well from the beginning. The receptionist was wonderful and even indicated where I could find the best coupons for service. They were always prompt, and offered to cap the utility sink and other cost-saving solutions. They were even able to accommodate our schedule by coming on a Saturday.
