How Sump Pumps Work
The idea behind our sump pumps service is keeping your property dry. After the installation is complete, the device collects water in a basin and pushes it outside the home or business to return to a dry well or city storm drain. As water flows into the pit, it raises the pressure on the sensor or raises the float valve, thus activating the pump. The pump then turns an impeller to move the water within the basin. As it leaves, a check valve blocks it from returning. In this way, floodwater gets out and stays out for good.
Regular testing is essential to keep these machines in good working order. Our sump pump contractors are happy to help you with this. All it takes is pouring a couple of gallons of water into the basin to check that it’s being pushed outside the property as it should be. We can easily inspect it for you and let you know whether it’s working well and if a replacement is needed. You’re also encouraged to ask us about installing ejector pumps for finished basements. Either of these options can work well in protecting you and what you care about from flooding.
