Sump pumps sit inside a basin and are typically located in the basement. They are used to collect excess water from flooding or a higher water table, and then move it through storm drains or rain drains where the water is no longer an issue.
Sewage ejector pumps help push both water and waste “up” from basement drains into the main sewer line to ensure the plumbing operates without backups.
Like all components of your plumbing, these should also require regular maintenance to prevent clogged drains and other problems from occurring.
Preventative Maintenance for Sump Pumps
In Portland, precipitation is no stranger for most of year. Mr. Rooter Plumbing recommends having the sump pump inspected to prepare it for any heavy rainfall. When the rain is exceeding normal levels, it can result in excess groundwater, leaving the basement more susceptible to flooding.
It’s important that homeowners are regularly maintaining their sump pump or sewage ejector pump where the water table is closer to ground level. Not only will this preventative maintenance save you money from a bigger issue, but you’ll have confidence knowing that your system is working right for the long-term.
Contact Mr. Rooter for annual maintenance, and our Customer Loyalty Team will schedule a convenient appointment with a yearly reminder to have one of our experienced technicians perform a thorough inspection on your sump pump and other plumbing parts.
