Sump Pump Installation

If you’re noticing signs of basement flooding, it’s time to take action and install a sump pump to prevent catastrophic damage. 

Dr HVAC’s team of friendly plumbers will assess your basement and household needs and recommend the proper size and type of sump pump. 

Sump pump installation begins with digging a hole in the lowest part of your basement (usually where the water enters and accumulates). It’s important to have a professional tackle the installation, as breaking up your basement’s concrete floor can jeopardize the structure of your home if not done properly.

After the hole (or sump pit) has been dug, a professional plumber will install a sump pump. Most sump pumps require power, so if there’s no power source nearby, you might need to contact an electrician as well. 

Sump Pump Repair

Like any mechanical device, a sump pump has multiple moving parts, and if one or more of those parts fail, the whole system might not work as intended. 

If you’re having any issues with your sump pump such as motor failure, clogged pipes, or switch malfunctions, give us a call. A professional plumber from Dr HVAC will be able to diagnose the issue and restore the functionality of your sump pump system.

If you find that your system isn’t working as it should, give us a call.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Staying on top of maintenance is crucial in order to maintain proper operation of your sump pump. Regular testing will give you peace of mind and ensure that your sump pump will actually switch on when you need it. 

Groundwater has high volumes of minerals, sediments, and debris, which can lead to clogs. It’s important to flush your system regularly to ensure it stays in good working order.

When you’re dealing with all the risks that come with a flooded basement, you need experts you can trust. Our plumbers will maintain your plumbing system and keep it in good working order.

Common Sump Pump Questions

Prompt action is necessary if you notice any of the following signs of basement flooding:

  • Pooling or standing water
  • Dampness or excessive moisture
  • Musty odours
  • Water stains on the walls or floors
  • Visible mould growth
  • Cracks in your foundation
  • Warped or buckled basement floor

A sump pump is made up of these components:

  • Water tank/sump pit
  • Pump mechanism 
  • Discharge PVC pipe
  • Battery backup system and alarm

Here’s a detailed look at how a sump pump works:

  1. Water from various sources, such as groundwater seepage, rainwater, or plumbing leaks, collects in the sump pit. 
  2. When the water level in the pit reaches a certain threshold, the pump is activated automatically. 
  3. Once activated, water is pumped out of the pit. It moves through a discharge pipe or hose that leads away from the building to a location where it can safely drain, such as a storm drain or your home’s weeping tiles.
  4. The pumped water is expelled from the building, preventing it from accumulating and causing flooding or water damage. Depending on the pump’s capacity and the volume of water, it may operate intermittently or continuously until the water level in the sump pit drops below the activation threshold.

Determining the lifespan of a sump pump is tricky, as its longevity will depend heavily on how often it’s used, how long it runs, and how much water it has to move. On average, you can expect a new pump to last anywhere from 7 to 10 years. It’s best to get it inspected in the early fall or late winter, as it will work hardest during the spring rainy season.
