Sump Pump Installation

For homeowners living in low-lying areas or flood-prone areas, the lowest level of their home is especially vulnerable to water damage and excess moisture.

Call Rooter Man Plumbing to consult with a member of our skilled plumbers today.

What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a device designed to protect the lowest level of your home, like the basement, from water damage caused by flooding, excess moisture, or groundwater intrusion. These pumps are typically installed in a sump pit dug into the lowest part of your basement or crawl space.

There are primarily two types of sump pumps: pedestal and submersible. Pedestal pumps have the motor positioned above the sump pit. They are inexpensive and easy to maintain but their exposed motor makes them slightly noisier than submersible pumps. As the name suggests, submersible pumps are placed entirely within the sump pit. They are ideal for deeper sump pits and are capable of handling larger volumes of water.

How Does a Sump Pump Work?

Sump pumps operate by detecting water levels in the sump pit. Once the water reaches a certain level, a float switch triggers the pump to activate. The pump then sucks water from the pit and ejects it away from your home, preventing flooding and potential damage. Sump pumps are a reliable defense against water infiltration, ensuring your basement remains dry and safe.

Why Homeowners Should Invest in a Sump Pump

As we’ve mentioned, pump pumps are your first line of defense against basement flooding, but that’s not the only benefit. By keeping moisture levels in check, sump pumps help maintain better indoor air quality, reducing the risk of respiratory problems caused by mold and dampness.

This defense will be appreciated by potential homebuyers as well, indicating that you prioritize the structural integrity of your property. Sump pumps provide homeowners with peace of mind, knowing that their investment is protected against water-related disasters.

Professional Installation Matters

A sump pump is not just a pump. It’s a system. From the grading of the area around the sump pit to the size of the sump pump, every aspect is sensitive and important. While it might be tempting to install a sump pump yourself to save money, it's essential to emphasize the importance of professional installation.

Our reliable plumbers in Reno will determine the appropriate pump type and size for your specific needs, ensure proper positioning, and can even implement a backup power source to defend against electrical outages.

We also offer sump pump replacement services. Give us a call if your sump pump is not doing its job, or if it is making unusually loud noises. Our live representatives are on standby to arrange urgent assistance if you need.

We had a busted drain pipe. And we found Rooter Man Plumbing when we were searching for local plumbers in the area. We were having trouble finding someone to come out and fix it. I called the Rooter Man and they showed up the same day and fixed it in less than an hour. Very quick and reliable. Kept their number just in case if we need a plumber later.

Rory got here fairly quick for dinner time on a Saturday night. His actions were even faster for a complicated problem that had waste water backing into a first floor tub. Since it wasn’t our first time, he scoped the problem and gave us an assessment of the necessity for future repairs. Rory is very professional and honest. An Expert Plumber.
