Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are designed to eliminate water from basements and crawlspaces.
What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is channeled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Mb Services plumbers are specialists at sump pump setup and repair work.

Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Lots of sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's especially essential that water is pumped away from your home.
If your house experiences a power interruption out for a prolonged duration, frequent power failures or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of numerous water powered backup systems (that use your home's water system pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage. A Mb Services plumber can provide numerous backup choices.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Test your sump pump frequently to make sure it will run when the next big rainstorm takes place. Test it by pouring a container of water into the sump pit. The pump needs to switch on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Guarantee that the float and the check valve move freely.
To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's performance and prolong its life. Ensure that the discharge line opening is free of blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and out of your basement or crawlspace. If you don't wish to do this yourself, our team of Mb Services professionals mores than happy to help with your sump pump upkeep.
Sump Pump Replacement and Repair
Like any equipment with moving parts, sump pumps will wear out over time and will need to be replaced. There is no general guideline on how often a sump pump need to be replaced because it depends upon how often the pump operates. If your sump pump is not working, contact the professionals at Mb Services to examine the scenario. We also can assist with any basement leak repairs that have happened due to a damaged sump pump.
