A properly maintained, working sump pump can save your property from water damage. Sump pumps are submersible pumps that sit at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually installed at the lowest point of the basement or affected area. When ground water rises, surrounding your building’s foundation, the water is diverted into a perimeter drainage system located at the base of the foundation. When your sump pump’s float switch is triggered, the pump activates, forcing water towards the nearest appropriate source, such as a storm drain or detention pond. Most sump pumps operate automatically only when the water reaches a certain level, and when they are operating at peak performance, you’ll hardly know they’re there at all. Most new homes come equipped with sump pumps, but sump pump drainage systems can also be installed in older homes and buildings. Sump pumps are usually either hard-wired into the building’s electrical system or plugged into an outlet—some even have a backup battery in case of power outages.

When a sump pump fails or malfunctions, you can find yourself with a basement or crawlspace full of quickly rising water. Not only is this dangerous to your valuable possessions and inventory, but there can be other complications as well. Water that comes in from outside sources can carry all sorts of contamination. Outside water can carry everything from pesticides and fertilizers from nearby yards and gardens, to motor oil and other chemicals from nearby roadways to sewage and other waste products. Obviously, when the source of water is not known, it is safer to assume that there is a health risk present. Our plumbing service technicians have all undergone extensive safety training and possess combined decades of experience in handling even the most dangerous and unpleasant water damage risks. When water floods in from an outside or unknown source, it is always better to avoid contact with the water whenever possible and contact a professional right away. Not only can you avoid health risks to yourself, your family, and other occupants in the building, but you know that you’re also getting the benefit of our years of experience with water damage and associated plumbing issues. At Plumbing Local, we make sure that all of our plumbing technicians are trained in the appropriate safety measures. We know how to minimize the risk while maximizing the possibility of sanitizing and restoring your valuable possessions and inventory.

Once the issue with your sump pump has been located, we will either repair or replace the unit as the situation demands. Most people agree that it is better to invest in repairing the sump pump that you already have, rather than installing a new one, but that is not always the most advisable option. At Plumbing Local we will assess each situation individually, and provide you with the best advice we have, according to our training, experience, and professional evaluation. We will work with you to provide the best solution for your situation, every time. Following repairs or replacement, we will continue to work until the excess water has been removed from the area. This aftercare is important to avoid buildups of moisture in areas that often do not get proper ventilation. When moisture builds up in an area, mold can set in, and once you’ve got a mold infestation it can quickly spread to other areas. At Plumbing Local we are as invested in the after-care of your property as we are in the initial repair or replacement. At Plumbing Local we know that types of water damage can lead to serious health risks, both from the water itself and what it may leave behind as residue, or in places that are difficult to reach like between the walls or in sub-floor areas. The experts at Plumbing Local will never leave without making sure that the affected areas have been cleaned, dried and sanitized in order to ensure a safe and healthy environment. At Plumbing Local we care about our community and the environment we share. We will always leave your property clean and restored.

The best way to avoid water damage on your property is to employ a professional team at the first sign of trouble. Our service technicians are not simply reactive, solving problems that have already occurred—we are also proactive, meaning that we will seek out and resolve potential problems before they have a chance to get worse.
