Protect your basement from flooding with a sump pump from In A Snap Plumbing.
If you have a basement, you likely have a sump pump installed to protect that area from floods. While your sump pump should work flawlessly, if it malfunctions, your property will be vulnerable to water damage. It’s essential to keep your sump pump properly maintained and quickly repaired if it breaks.
Why Getting Sump Pump Maintenance and Repair Is Important
An improperly working sump pump can allow water into your home, and with that water can come all manner of trouble, including:
- Warped wood
- Mold growth
- Water damage to your belongings
- Illness from bacteria in the water
Take advantage of quality sewer services from In A Snap Plumbing. If a recent storm or drainage problem has ruined your old sump pump, we will get it working again using quality parts at a low cost.
Types of Sump Pumps
If you do not have a sump pump, or if flooding caused damage to your existing sump pump, learn more about your choices before you call a sump pump repair specialist. Choosing the wrong sump pump for your basement can cause it to wear out prematurely and lead to future repair bills.
The professionals at In A Snap Plumbing are up-to-date on the latest models of sump pumps. If you are in the Van Nuys, CA, area, call us. We will assess your basement and suggest solutions to sump pump problems.
Pedestal Sump Pumps
Pedestal sump pumps rest above the water level on a raised platform. They are most suitable if you don’t need to pump a large water volume.
Pedestal sump pumps need not be watertight because the pump motor does not come into contact with the water. Only the impeller, the pump element that actually moves the water, is beneath the water level.
Submersible Sump Pumps
Submersible sump pumps cost a little more than pedestal pumps, but they have more durable construction. They sit in a well beneath the water line and pump water away from the house. They can work effectively in significant flooding events that could overwhelm a pedestal sump pump.
One advantage of submersible sump pumps is that they take up less space in your basement. Consider a submersible pump if your old pedestal sump pump can’t keep up with your needs.
Our Sump Pump Repair Service
It is not always easy to determine what went wrong when a sump pump fails, particularly after a flood. Many homeowners wonder if their waterlogged sump pump will ever run again. Before you replace your sump pump, call a sump pump specialist to inspect the damage.
If your sump pump is intact, you might be able to save money by fixing a relatively inexpensive part. Even if your sump pump sustained flood damage, identifying the cause of the damage could help you to figure out how to prevent the problem recurring once you fix the pump.
A qualified sump pump repair technician extends the life of sump pumps by performing the following essential services:
Debris in floodwater causes clogs, particularly in pedestal sump pumps. The impeller or the motor might need replacement if a clog prevents the mechanism from moving smoothly.
The sump pump depends on the check valve to keep water from flowing back into the pump.
Corrosion of the wiring or damage to the connections can keep the sump from working normally. Due to the proximity to water, it is crucial to get professional assistance before trying to fix the electrical system of your sump pump.
The float switch allows the sump pump to detect the water level and control the pump’s operation. If the float switch gets stuck, the sump might not turn on when the water level rises, leading to uncontrolled flooding.
