Sump Pump Repair and Replacement
A sump pump is typically installed in the lowest point of a home and is a highly efficient tool for draining water from your home. The sump pump is submersible and works by channeling the groundwater surrounding your home into a drain system at the base of your foundation. A float switch triggers the sump pump to remove water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, detention pond, or dry well. Sump pumps are either submersible or pedestal. Submersible sump pumps are quieter, cleaner, and created for a finished basement. Pedestal sump pumps are more economical and have an exposed motor that is easier to clean. It is a good idea to have a battery backup pump that will automatically pump water from the sump pump in the event that your sump pump stopped working due to damage or power outage.
Sump Pump Care
- Service and Testing: To ensure your sump pump will work properly during a downfall, it is important to have it tested routinely. You can do a simple test at home to determine if you need to call a specialist. Simply dump a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump should immediately turn on and drain the water from the pit, then shut itself off once the water is gone. If your equipment is not operating correctly, you may need sump pump repair. Be sure to call the experts at Godby for any sump pump concerns.
- Cleaning: Regularly clean your sump pump to prevent the need for repair or replacement and keep it functioning properly. Clean by removing any dirt or other debris from the equipment and drainage lines.
- Replacement: A damaged sump pump is a hazard for your home. If your sump pump fails, water may seep through the foundation and basement walls resulting in basement flooding and potential water damage. To prevent water damage, it is a good idea to ensure your sump pump is performing well. If the sump pump requires repair or replacement because it has stopped working, Godby is the expert for replacing your sump pump and all other plumbing services.
