Most homeowners do not give a second thought to their sump pump system. They naturally expect the unit to work as intended. Most new homes have one in the basement, and they often work well to prevent structural damage. Over time, or through heavy usage, the system may break down. That’s where Gold Seal Plumbing enters the picture. We repair and install new units with ease!
One type of sump pump is a submersible pump designed to channel ground water through a drain system. Any water that enters the drainage system from outside is directed into the sump pit. The pump then turns on, removing the water and preventing damage and flooding. Another type of pump is for sewer removal. It works similar in that the sewage enters the pump well and is pumped to the main sewer to drain by gravity flow.
Most sump pumps are typically equipped with a backup battery. Both the pump itself and the backup unit must be serviced by a professional with experience. One wrong move or connection and your home may experience excessive flooding or damage. Do not skimp on professional service!
A backup system is designed to work alongside the main unit. If the primary sump pump cannot function properly, the backup will take over. The entire system will prevent an overflow of water from outside. Without a backup, you risk structural damage. We can install and service backup units!
An unusually heavy rainstorm can easily overwhelm a sump pump. Do not let that be the case. It’s best to schedule preventative maintenance and prompt repairs with Gold Seal Plumbing. We’ll ensure your sump pump system is functioning and efficient.
