Living in an area that receives over three feet of rainwater each year makes it essential to prepare for the removal of excess water in your home or business. Installing and maintaining a sump pump in a basement or underground level will help keep your area nice and dry. The professionals at All Valley Plumbing can help when it comes to your sump pump installation & repair service in Mill Creek.
Cracks and gaps in your foundation over time can allow the seepage of water and rainwater into your home or business. The foundation and walls of your home or business can be damaged over time from water exposure, and anything above the flooding level can create severe damage and issues that are very costly to repair. The excavation and installation of a sump pit allow the water to be collected in the hollow, and when it hits a certain level, the pump turns on and removes all of the excess water before flooding occurs.
The use of sump pumps is designed to address specific concerns. There are two different types of sump pumps, submersible, and pedestal. A submersible pump sits below the water level in the sump pit, allowing it to remain cool and not overheat; a pedestal pump needs a little more room, they sit above the water level and usually have a float switch to turn it on an off automatically as the water level rises. Constant airflow to the top of the pedestal pump is required to stop the unit from overheating. Both pumps have hook-up for a drainage tube or hose to connect when pumping out the water.
At All Valley Plumbing, we also offer repair of sump pumps as well as the installation of new pumps. It is recommended to check your pump regularly to make sure it is in top working order.
