Sump Pump Installation in Lincoln Park
Licensed Plumbers Serving Wayne, Monroe & Oakland Counties
Do you struggle to keep water out of your basement? Is your property located in an area that is prone to flooding? If so, a sump pump is a worthwhile investment. With a sump pump you can prevent water accumulation in your home and avoid the subsequent damage to your walls, floors, and more. The next time a large storm hits, you can be confident that you won’t be dealing with excess water getting into your home. You’ll also be protected from unsafe living conditions that could arise from too much moisture in your house, such as growth of mold and mildew.
What Type of Sump Pump Do I Need?
If you’ve decided that a sump pump is right for your home, you’ll next need to choose which type best fits your needs.
There are a few sump pump options, including:
- Pedestal sump pumps – This type of unit consists of a pump placed at the top of the sump basin, which allows plumbers ease of access for repairs or replacement. There is also a pipe that goes down into the bottom basin where the water collects. The water is pumped through the pipe with an impeller apparatus.
- Submersible sump pumps – Instead of keeping the electric motor above the water level, as with a pedestal sump pump, a submersible sump pump is place under water. The entire assembly, including the motor, is waterproof. Although these units are usually more expensive, they are much quieter than pedestal pumps. They are also an ideal solution for finished basements, sense they are less obtrusive and safer for children.
- Sewage septic pumps – If you have a septic system and sewage is accumulating in your basement, you may require a sewage septic pump. These units grind the waste and transport it out into your septic tank.
An additional consideration is whether you would like your pump to have battery backup. A sump pump equipped with battery backup ensures the unit continues to operate even in the event of a power failure, such as during a severe storm. Our plumbers can help you make an informed decision about which sump pump is right for you and make sure it is installed correctly.
