Sump PumpsSump pumps are the most unlikely little heroes of residential plumbing systems. In times of flooding, they ensure that excess water is being pumped out of your foundation and home, saving an enormous amount of possible detrimental damage. At A-Advantage Plumbing, we’re expertly trained in sump pump installation, sump pump replacement, and sump pump repair. It’s crucial that you have your sump pump(s) routinely checked. We will always check your sump pumps as part of our routine inspections. Trust us, you won’t want to get caught in dangerous weather without a properly functioning sump pump in your basement, garage, or other foundation.
If basement flooding strikes your home, your sump pump will jump into action. All sump pumps have a float switch that triggers when the water level rises to a certain point. Once the pump is triggered, it will begin to pump the invasive flood water out of your foundation and away from your home. You should also make sure that your sump pump has a working water level alarm. This will ensure that your sump pump alerts you if it is not functioning correctly. Do not wait until the last second to make sure that these pumps are working correctly. Once harsh flooding is predicted, these pumps become valuable commodities and may be hard to obtain or repair properly.
Give us a call today, and we’ll come out to your home to perform a full sump pump inspection (or a complete plumbing system inspection if necessary). Our talented team of plumbers are trained and experienced with these devices and know-how to make sure that they are functioning up to the full potential. As always, our number priority is the safety of your home and your family. Going without a working sump pump can lead to disastrous consequences for your foundation, requiring tens of thousands of dollars in flood removal and restoration. To put it frankly, flooding sucks, but sump pumps are here to help remove the water from your home, saving as much as it can.
