Sump Pump Service FAQs
How does a sump pump work?
A sump pump operates by detecting a certain water level in a sump pit and pumping the excess water away through discharge pipes. It continues running until the water level drops below the pump's threshold.
What types of sump pumps are there?
There are two main types of sump pumps:
- Submersible sump pump: Installed just below ground level, ideally at the lowest point of a home's basement. It collects water in a basin, and when the water level rises, the pump automatically removes it through a discharge tube.
- Pedestal sump pump: Sits above the sump pit with a base reaching into the pit to pump water away. While noisier than submersible pumps, pedestal sump pumps are suitable for narrow or shallow sump pits.
What is the best type of sump pump?
The best sump pump for your home depends on your property's drainage, sump pit layout, and more. If possible, we recommend submersible sump pumps for their quieter operation.
Sump Pump Replacement: Don't Delay
If your existing sump pump is beyond repair, don't delay having it replaced. Waiting for a more convenient time could leave your home vulnerable to unforeseen flooding events. Mr. Rooter Plumbing can inspect your current sump pump and pit, determining whether it's the right fit for your property. If necessary, we'll replace your old unit with a new, efficient model that suits your home's specific needs.
