Sump Pump Installation: Your Shield Against Flooding

Sump pump installation plays a vital role in maintaining a safe and dry basement. This service is indispensable in preventing water damage, mold growth, and electrical hazards. By keeping your sump pump in optimal condition, you are proactively protecting your property and ensuring the well-being of your loved ones.

When it comes to sump pump installation, Mr. Rooter Plumbing has got you covered. We can complete the installation in just a day to provide you with years of protection. Whether you prefer a submersible or pedestal sump pump, our expert technicians can handle it. The sump pump is optimally installed at the lowest point of your home's foundation and is ready to spring into action when needed.

Considering that sump pumps rely on electricity to function, we strongly advise adding a sump pump backup battery to your system. This extra layer of security keeps the sump pump operational even during power outages caused by natural disasters. Going the extra mile can be the difference between a dry basement and costly water damage.

Sump Pump Replacement

If your existing sump pump is beyond repair, don't delay having it replaced. Waiting for a more convenient time could leave your home vulnerable to unforeseen flooding events. We can inspect your current sump pump and pit to determine whether it's the right fit for your property. If necessary, we'll replace your old unit with a new, efficient model that suits your home's specific needs.

FAQs about Sump Pumps

How does a sump pump work?

A sump pump operates by detecting a certain water level in a sump pit and pumping the excess water away through discharge pipes. It continues running until the water level drops below the pump's threshold.

What types of sump pumps are there?

There are two main types of sump pumps:

  1. Submersible sump pump: It’s installed just below ground level (at the lowest point of a home's basement). It collects water in a basin, and when the water level rises, the pump automatically removes it through a discharge tube.
  2. Pedestal sump pump: It sits above the sump pit with a base reaching into the pit to pump water away. While noisier than submersible pumps, pedestal sump pumps are suitable for narrow or shallow sump pits.

What is the best type of sump pump?

The best sump pump for your home depends on your property's drainage, sump pit layout, and more. If possible, we recommend submersible sump pumps for their quieter operation.
