Sump Pump Repair Services Ensure Optimal Protection
Your home’s sump pump is a vital piece of emergency equipment that helps keep your home dry and free from water damage. If your sump pump doesn’t operate properly or fails to function when it should, your basement, crawl spaces, or building foundation could be seriously damaged by leaks or floodwaters. When you need sump pump repair and maintenance, turn to the plumbing experts at Sobieski Services to quickly and effectively fix your sump pump and return it to its home safety role.
Sump pumps are usually installed in a hole or sump pit located at the lowest level of your home, ensuring that water entering your basement will naturally flow into the pit. When water fills the pit to a specified level, the sump pump activates and pumps the water out of the pit and into a drainage system. The water is prevented from building up and causing damage to the basement or foundation. Sump pumps can also help keep moisture levels and associated problems, such as mold growth, to a minimum.
There are many occasions when a sump pump is needed to keep your home’s lower levels dry. At the same time, these are also occasions when you do not want your sump pump to fail. They include during:
- Strong storms with heavy rainfall
- Minor floods caused by rainfall or overflowing creeks, ponds or lakes
- Major leaks caused by broken pipes in your home
- Accumulation of water caused by clogged drains, excess snow melt, failing pressure or pop-off valves, malfunctioning water heaters or other problems
- Seepage of groundwater into your basement
