Sump pumps can solve the majority of basement flooding and water leaking issues, and our Pittsburgh plumbers would be happy to assist you with all of your sump pump needs. They are able to install a sump pump system, which will direct water from around and beneath your basement’s foundation into a sump pit. The electric powered pump will then discharge the water out of the pit and into a city storm drain or location approved by Pittsburgh codes.
Our plumbers can do replacements as well. Like any piece of equipment with moving parts, sump pumps will wear out over time. Replacement time is most dependent upon how frequently it is used, but can vary based upon the make and model you have in your home. It is also recommended that you test the functionality of your sump pump regularly. You can test it by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit; the pump should then turn on for a few seconds to remove the water and then shut itself off.
