Sump Pump Repair & Installation


Wet Basement? We can help with our Sump Pump Services

You never think that your sump pump is one of the top appliances to keep in good repair in your home, but it is. Why? If the water table around your home’s foundation is high enough water will find a way into your basement. It rains a lot in our area, and we also get a lot of snow, which has to melt! This saturates the soil around your home and again, it will find it’s way into your basement or crawlspace.

When water levels rise the sump pump is activated and the water is pumped out of the basement through a discharge pipe. If you don’t have a sump pump or it is in need of repairs, that water has no place to go but your basement and this can spell disaster for your home. If you have a finished basement your possessions will be ruined. Moisture creates mold and mildew and this makes the air in your home unhealthy.

Common Sump Pump Repairs

Some common issues we see with sump pumps include:

  • Power failure (consider a battery backup sump pump)
  • Burned out motors
