We Work on All Types of Sump Pumps
Mr. Rooter® of Tucson does it all when it comes to sump pumps, including residential sump pump installation, repair, and maintenance. We work with all types of residential sump pump systems for homeowners in and around Oro Valley and Casas Adobes. Sump pumps are hardwired to electrical systems or plugged into wall outlets in most cases. Sump pumps are often equipped with battery backup power in the event of a storm. If your existing sump pump does not have a backup, our team can install a sump pump battery backup. Learn more about the most common types of sump pumps:
- Pedestal Sump Pumps – These sump pumps are mounted above your sump pit to provide convenient access for our professionals to service and test your system. This is a budget-friendly option that is easy to repair.
- Submersible Sump Pumps – This type of sump pump sits in a sump pit or well and is out of sight. Submersible pumps are quieter and cost a bit more than pedestal versions. We are happy to answer any questions about your residential sump pump cost.
- Battery Back-Up Pumps – Designed to complement your current sump pump, battery back-ups kick in during a power outage.
Important Information About Sump Pumps
Our sump pump services can protect your home’s basement from being flooded. Sump pumps are triggered by float switches that get set off if water reaches a specific level. After reaching this level, your sump pump will start removing water into an outdoor area, well, or nearby storm drain. Be sure your sump pump is equipped with a battery-powered water-level alarm. Doing so can ensure your family is warned of potential flooding if the pump overflows or malfunctions.
