Sump Pump Repair and Sump Pump Installation Services
In Sherman Oaks Serving Los Angeles, CA
The beloved sump pump is your number one flood-prevention utility. It protects your home and basement from flooding and water damage during heavy rains or rising waters by moving the water from your basement out of your home. The pump is inserted into a pit, known as the “basin,” in your basement floor. If water begins to rise in your basement, the pump discharges the water into a designated area. If the pump fails, your home could experience serious water and foundation damage.
The Importance of Sump Pump Maintenance
It’s easy to forget about your sump pump, until your basement is flooded with water and debris. Preventative maintenance will help your sump pump live longer and keep your home from flooding. It is advisable to schedule regular maintenance with your plumbing company to avoid the hassle of a water-logged basement during an unexpected rainstorm. Piper Plumbing will evaluate and maintain your sump pump to give you peace of mind during the next heavy rainfall.
Which Sump Pump is Right for My Home?
There are currently two varieties of sump pumps: Submersible and Pedestal Sump Pumps. A professional will evaluate your home and help you determine the correct pump for your basement and budget.
- Submersible Sump Pumps: These pumps combine the pump and motor into one unit. True to their name, they are submerged in the basin in your basement, saving space and making them quieter.
- Pedestal Sump Pumps: The pedestal sump pump differs from its submersible counterpart because the motor sits on a pedestal aboveground. Because of this, the motor often has a longer lifespan, but is noisier.
