If you have a basement or underground level in your home or business, you need to be sure that you have a sump pump to take care of the excess rainwater we get each year. All Valley Plumbing specialists are pleased to provide sump pumps installation & repair service in Bothell and other nearby locales.
Rain often trickles through an exposed gap or crack in the foundation. The water that accumulates leads to wall and foundation damage, as well as flooding that destroys the flooring and anything resting on it. A sump pit in the floor traps the water in the hole and the pump drains out it before saturation transpires.
Sump pumps are made for specific areas. A submersible pump stays cool as it sits in the pit in the groundwater and works effectively in small spaces. A pedestal pump is kept cool by flowing air around the unit, requiring more room to avert overheating. Both pumps empty water from the pit through a pipe that leads outdoors.
A float switch is used to turn on the sump pump. A tethered switch functions well for deep, extensive holes. Narrow, shallow pits operate better with vertical switches. Both types benefit from electronic switches that can read water levels by machine.
Common indications of sump pump malfunction include a swamped or damp basement, water exiting the pit into the room, strange pump noises or if your unit is over 10 years old.
All Valley Plumbing specialists expertly install sump pumps, sump pits and plumbing associated with the unit. We also provide periodic maintenance services that include supervising battery fluid levels and pump condition, assessment of the battery, automatic charging and function and twofold float switch design.
