Sump Pump Installation & Replacement
A sump pump moves water from underneath your home to the nearest storm drain, retention pond, or dry well. They’re typically installed in basements and crawl spaces, where they sit idly until the surrounding soil becomes oversaturated, triggering the pump to turn on.
Sump pumps are highly sophisticated plumbing systems and should be installed by a professional to avoid damaging the pump or creating any plumbing issues.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a sump pump?

It’s essential to ensure that water doesn’t accumulate under your home despite these conditions, and a sump pump is the key to prevention.
What are the types of sump pumps?
There are two types of sump pumps.
Submersible pumps are durable and long-lasting and are best for homeowners who need their pump regularly.
Pedestal pumps remove water at a slower rate and are best for homes that need a sump pump in case of an emergency.
How do I test my sump pump?
It’s important to periodically test your sump pump by pouring a 5-gallon bucket of water into the sump pit. This should activate the pump to begin draining.
