  • Pedestal Sump Pumps – Service professionals mount these sump pumps above your sump pit, giving our professional team convenient access to test and service your system. This budget-friendly protective equipment is easier to repair than other options.
  • Submersible Sump Pumps – This sump pump type sits in a sump well or pit and stays out of sight while protecting your home against flooding. Submersible pumps are quieter than pedestal versions, but they also cost a bit more. We will gladly answer all your questions about how much a residential sump pump will cost.
  • Battery Back-Up Pumps – Manufacturers design these pumps to complement your existing sump pump, and they turn on to pump water during a power outage.

Essential Information About Sump Pumps

Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Des Moines, IA’s sump pump services can safeguard your home’s basement against flooding from a storm or plumbing issue. Float switches get set off whenever the water in sump pits or wells reaches a specific level and trigger sump pumps to start pumping water. After reaching the triggering level, your sump pump starts removing water and pumping it to an outdoor area, nearby storm drain, or well. Make sure you equip your sump pump with a battery-powered alarm to monitor your water level. Taking this vital step ensures your pump warns your family of potential flooding if it malfunctions or overflows.
