How Do Sump Pumps Work?
Sump pump installation entails digging a shallow pit to hold the pump at the lowest point in the home. Flood water will naturally gravitate towards the pump, which starts up as the water is detected. It uses centrifugal force to pull the water into it, then up and out of your home with a pipe.
As a result, your home will be better able to withstand damage from flooding, keeping your possessions dry and your insurance premiums down. Our sump pump installation services make it so that your new pump will be installed the right way, without any problems. We’ll also be around anytime you need sump pump repairs and maintenance, so you know who to call whenever trouble arises.
Sump Pump Maintenance Is Important
The flooding that sump pumps are designed to protect you from can often arise on very short notice. This is part of why you need to prepare your system well before trouble strikes. That means a quality maintenance session performed on a regular basis: ideally once a year before the rainy season starts.
Maintenance allows the technician to check for any problems in the sump pump, as well as replacing loose bolts and any other little things that need fixing. If further repairs are needed, you can schedule a time well in advance of any heavy weather. That way, your sump pump will be ready to go the moment trouble strikes, and with regular maintenance applied over time, it can even extend the life of the pump.
Remember: our maintenance plan includes a plumbing inspection every year! We want to put your mind at ease.
We Handle Repairs and Replacement
The risks of a flood in Buffalo, NY are high enough that an older sump pump should likely be replaced before you need it to perform beyond its capacity. It can be difficult to tell when that point is reached, however, and when a given issue is better treated with repairing the system than conducting sump pump replacement. You need to trust the service you call to be honest with you about those choices, so you can make an informed decision.
