Sump Pump Repair & Installation

Your home’s sump pump controls the accumulation of water and dampness in depressed areas, such as basements. The pump maintains water and dampness problems on surface soil for commercial and industrial properties. It also allows you to conduct business, as usual, without water problems. That means it’s essential to make sure you keep your pump in working order. To make it happen your sump should be regularly inspected for wear and tear. For that, just give Everest Drain a call and we will come out to take a look at your pump.

Guide for Sump Pump Installation

A sump pump is a piece of basement drainage equipment that eliminates excess water. Even if you don’t live in a rainy area, you never know when an unexpected rainfall will hit and flood your entire living space.

When installing a sump pump, keep the following in mind:

  • Make an appointment or Consult with a plumber, it costs FREE
    This is when you should talk to a professional plumber about what size sump system will work best for your home. Even if you’re handling the task yourself, they have knowledge that may be worth a brief visit and can offer vital recommendations on site, installation, and upkeep.
  • Choose a location for the sump pump
    Have a professional plumber dig a hole in the lowest portion of your basement for the sump basin, where groundwater usually gathers. To assist you in finding that spot, use a laser level. It’s also a good idea to put it in the same room as your furnace and water heater. To keep your basement dry, you might need a bigger basin and a more powerful pump.
  • Choose the appropriate cover
    Because sump pump well caps are so vital, make sure yours are made for the sump basin you’ve chosen. Some lids are designed to work in conjunction with existing radon mitigation systems, so talk to your radon expert about how to integrate your new sump pit.
  • The sump basin should be dug out and installed
    Place the basin so that the top of it is just below ground level. Cut a circle in the concrete that is larger than the basin’s circumference, then hammer it out.
  • Get below the water table by digging deep
    After that, set the basin in position. To prevent rocks and silt from clogging the sump pump, install a silt filter around the outside of the basin.
  • In the basin, place the sump pump
    Place several inches of gravel in the bottom of the hole first, then a huge paver on top of that. This gives your pump a level base from which to operate. Concentrate on the sump pump’s location such that the float activates the pump only when the water table rises.
  • Silicon caulk should be used to seal the discharge hole
    Seal the hole surrounding the discharge pipe with external grade caulk to keep dirt, rats, and other unpleasant critters out.

  • 2. When Will I Need To Repair My Sump Pump?

    Maintenance on your sump pump should be done at least once a year to minimize unnecessary repairs. This is best done in the late winter, when the snow starts to melt, or in the early spring, just before the rainy season begins. We recommend performing maintenance on sump pumps that run often at both periods.

    If you have a basement, you need one. And if you don’t have a basement, you probably don’t need one.

  • 4. How long do sump pumps last?

    Actually, there is no accurate answer to this question. However, it is suggested that every sump pump should be replaced after 10 years of service. The life of a sump pump depends on various factors such as the regular maintenance, the frequency of its usage, installation and many others.

  • 5. What are the common reasons for a sump pump to fail?

    There are many reasons that may cause your sump pump to fail. This includes improper installation of the sump pump, not getting regular inspection and maintenance, the incorrect size of pump that is insufficient to fulfill the requirement and many more.

  • 6. How can I keep my sump pump last longer?

    To keep your sump pump last longer, they require routine maintenance every six months to a year, but if you live in a damper climate, more frequent inspection can’t hurt.
