Since northwest Washington averages about 37.5 inches of rain each year, it pays to be prepared. Installing a sump pump, especially if you have a basement or underground level, ensures that groundwater does not accumulate. All Valley Plumbing professionals can effectively and affordably provide sump pumps installation & repair service in Lake Stevens.
Falling rain must go somewhere. This is often through a hole or crack in the foundation. Excess water leads to wall and foundation damage, as well as flooding that can destroy your belongings. Creating a sump pit allows water to gather in the hole and the pump to drain before the area becomes saturated.
Sump pumps vary according to need. A submersible pump sits in the pit in ground water to keep it from getting too hot. A pedestal pump is cooled by air, necessitating more air flow and space to keep from overheating. This pump works better in bigger areas. Both pumps take water out of the pit via a drain pipe that that goes outside.
Flipping on the sump pump requires a float switch. Tethered switches work best for deep and extensive pits. Slim and shallow pits operate better with vertical switches. Electronic switches can be used with both tethered and vertical designs but read water levels with electric components.
Sump pump repair is needed if your lowest level or basement is flooded or wet, if the pit is overflowing or there are unusual noises emanating from the pump. Replacement should be made at least every 5-10 years.
