Sump Pump Repair Services

Reliable Plumbing Services with No Overtime Charges

Do you live in an area of low elevation or in a place with high water tables and frequent heavy rainstorms? If you do, you need to make sure that you have a functioning sump pump at all times.

Sump pumps re-route water away from the lowest point of your home's foundation and protect your basement from flooding. Sump pumps are essential during heavy rainstorms, and they help reduce flooding if you experience overflowing water from a plumbing issue.

If your sump pump stops working, it’s important to identify the cause and find a solution before the next rainstorm to avoid serious damage to your home.

For sump pump repair, call your local Mr. Rooter® Plumbing at (855) 982-2028.

  • Types of Sump Pumps
  • Common Sump Pump Problems & Solutions

Types of Sump Pumps

There are two primary types of sump pumps:

  • Pedestal – These are mounted above the sump pit, providing convenient access for service and periodic testing.
  • Submersible – Submersible pumps sit in a sump pit (or well) out of sight. They are less visually intrusive but somewhat more difficult to test and service.

In most cases, your sump pump is hardwired to your electrical system or plugged into a wall outlet. Because these power sources can fail in a storm, sump pumps are typically equipped with battery backup power.

If your sump pump doesn’t have a backup, Mr. Rooter Plumbing can help install a sump pump battery backup.

Other key facts about sump pumps:

  • A sump pump is triggered by a float switch, which is set off when the water reaches a preset level. Once it reaches this level, the sump pump begins to remove water into a nearby storm drain, outdoor area, or well.
  • It’s important to equip sump pumps with battery-powered water-level alarms. This can help ensure you are warned of potential flooding if the pump starts to malfunction or overflow.

Common Sump Pump Problems & Solutions

Our team suggests you have your sump pump checked at least once every year to ensure it functions properly. Not only do our services detect any problems, but they also help prevent future damage from occurring.

Common Sump Pump Issues Include:

  • Improper installation
  • Clogged pumps/parts
  • Basin overfilling with water
  • Pump continuously runs
  • Stuck switch

Unless you have experience handling a sump pump, it’s difficult to find the cause of the problem. However, letting the issue go untreated not only puts your unit in jeopardy but can hurt your commercial or residential property.
