The Basics of Sump Pumps
Sump pumps basically pump the excess water away from your house and out of harm’s way. They provide drainage when there is no natural drainage available. This is useful for flooding and for a problem known as hydrostatic pressure. This occurs when water builds up behind the foundation of the house and increases pressure so much that it causes structural damage. A sump pump will help relieve hydrostatic pressure, so that hidden water doesn’t end up creating any structural damage to the home.
Why Is My Sump Pump Broken?
A sump pump won’t do you any good if it isn’t working properly, and sump pump repair is a popular service for many plumbers. Over time, a sump pump can become clogged up with sediment, dirt and debris, which is made worse when heavy rains bring it all into the house. Since the pumps run on electricity, problems with the electrical circuitry are also a possibility. When the pumping efficiency is compromised, the pump can no longer do its job.
Reliable Sump Pump Repair Is Crucial
Reliable sump pump repair is critical if you expect to have a functioning pump when you need it most. With all the dirt, leaves and sediment that can clog up the pump and with the electrical element, it only makes sense to have your repairs performed by a licensed professional. Make sure any sump pump repair company you want to hire has experience and a track record of success in your area. Poor quality repair work will only end up costing you more when the pump fails to remove the water effectively.
Basement flooding can cause a host of property and health problems, which is a why a healthy sump pump is an integral part of your plumbing system if you live in a vulnerable area. Call Bellows Plumbing, Heating & Air for expert, timely repair or installation.
