Working With All Types of Sump Pumps

Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Omaha offers comprehensive services for residential sump pump systems, including installation, repair, replacement, and maintenance. Our team works with all types of sump pumps that are hardwired to electrical systems or plugged into wall outlets. Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup power system to keep them working in the event of a storm. If your existing sump pump does not have a backup, we can install one. Learn about some of the most common types of sump pumps we work with:

  • Submersible Sump Pumps – These sump pumps sit in a sump pit or well and are out of sight. Submersible sump pumps are quieter and more affordable than pedestal sump pumps. Our team is happy to answer any questions you have related to residential sump pump costs.
  • Pedestal Sump Pumps – These sump pumps get mounted about the sump pit for convenient access for our professionals to test and service your system. These budget-friendly sump pumps are easy to repair.
  • Battery Back-Up Pumps – These backup systems are designed to complement your current sump pump and kick in during a power outage to ensure you aren’t without sump pump service.

What to Know About Sump Pumps

Many homeowners don’t think much about a sump pump, but this important device can keep your home’s basement from being flooded. Sump pumps have float switches that get triggered when water reaches a certain level. Once this level is reached, the sump pump begins removing water into an outdoor area such as a well or nearby storm drain. You should ensure your sump pump has a battery-powered water-level alarm, so your family is warned of potential flooding if your sump pump malfunctions or overflows.
