Since northwest Washington gets about 3 feet of rain each year, installing a sump pump ensures that groundwater does not collect in your basement or lower level. The pros at All Valley Plumbing effectively provide sump pumps installation & repair service in Marysville.
Rain often dribbles through an undiscovered hole or crack in the foundation. Accumulation of water causes wall and foundation damage, as well as flooding that destroys all in its path. Producing a sump pit in the floor catches the water in the hole and the pump drains it before saturation occurs.
Sump pumps vary. A submersible pump remains cool as it sits in the pit in the ground water and works well for small areas. A pedestal pump is cooled by air flow around the unit, requiring a bigger space to prevent overheating. Both pumps drain water from the pit through a pipe that leads outside.
A float switch turns on the sump pump. A tethered switch is best for deep, extensive pits. Slim, shallow pits function better with vertical switches. Electronic switches can be used with both types and read water levels electronically.
Typical signs that your sump pump needs repair include a flooded or damp basement, water coming from the pit, strange noises that come from the pump or if your unit is more than 10 years old.
