Sump Pump Installation and Repairs

Sump Pump Installation & Repairs

A quite common but sad reason for structural damage and even property loss is basement flooding. Installing a sump pump will be the best guard against groundwater flooding. The reinforced protection of a sump pump is a definite necessity for homes or commercial buildings with a basement.

In addition to fitting and placing the sump pump, proper maintenance is needed to be keep it fully-functional. What’s the point of added layer of security if it’s not working?

Sump Pump Installation & Repair Service

A sump pump is a submersible pump that is installed in special pits knows as sump pits. These are usually fitted at the lowest point of the basement. Groundwater around the property’s foundation is funneled into a perimeter drain system sitting at the bottom of the foundation.

The perforated pipes used in this drain system permit the water to flow in. Then water is then redirected to the closest storm drain, retention pond, or dry well. A float switch is the typical trigger for sump pumps, and they’re only activated after the water reaches a specific level.

Sump pumps protect homes from water logging by redirecting the surplus water. Master Waterproofing has some of the skilled technicians in the industry who will proficiently install a sump pump and also be available for quick repair and maintenance.

Nowadays, sump pumps are pre-equipped in new homes, but older ones need to be retrofitted with one to disperse the worries of basement flooding. 

Why You Need a Sump Pump

These special machines are designed to pump (remove) water from one area to another. Smart homeowners are mostly familiar with sump pumps and their uses. In the events of serious weather, threat of high water tables, or any other hazardous situations, a sump pump effectively rids you off the tension of flooding. 

Water is tricky to deal with. It will find the smallest cracks that you deemed insignificant to look after and seep in; slowly but surely flooding the entire basement floor if not paid attention to. The safest bet is to make sure the water level remains under the basement floor’s level.

Has your basement flooded after a big storm? Does it always feel damp? Excess moisture from underground leaves your basement feeling clammy, musky, and just uncomfortable to be in. Apart from that, it can also cause mildew and mold buildup, not to mention the number of bacterial issues that your home and goods are left vulnerable to.

Prolonged leaking and flooding slowly leads to foundational damage, which will cost quite a hefty amount for repairs. Unless these flooding problems aren’t addressed as soon as possible, the condition will worsen every day at increasing speed.

For a permanent solution, there’s no alternative to professional sump pump installation. Master Waterproofing provides reliable services where you’ll be able to feel the difference. Some people wonder whether hiring professionals for the job is even necessary, or could they just put their own skills to the test? 

It’s not impossible, but we wouldn’t recommend it. Leave these tasks to the experts, Master Waterproofings; because we strive for maximum customer satisfaction.

Sump Pump Installation

Sump pumps can either be plugged into an outlet or hard-wired into a property’s electrical system. Some even come featuring battery backup for functionality during power-cuts. Major storms or excessive snow meltdown, the water is pumped away when time calls for it the most.

If there are frequent power-cuts in your location, or you have to sit through a power outage at home for an extended period, a battery backup sump pump will jump to the rescue and safeguard your basement from damaged caused by water logging.

Sump Pump Maintenance Test

Just installing it and forgetting about it isn’t the point we were trying to make. Mechanical things will break down; it’s part of their nature, so you should definitely keep an eye on the drainage system of your house to prevent unfavorable situations.

To make sure it’s capable of handling the next large downpour; regularly inspect your sump pump. You can conduct a simple test for this: Pour a bucket into the sump pit and observe whether or not it shuts itself.

A fully-working pump will turn on, disperse of the water from the pit, and automatically shut off shortly. Make sure the check valve and float move freely. For a quick clean of your sump pit, remove any debris, gravel, sand bits, or any other trash for increased efficiency and longer lifetime. 

The discharge line should open without obstructions for the water to be pumped through the line and out the crawlspace or basement. This job can be quite time-consuming, and for anyone with no prior training, it’ll be increasingly hard and annoying. Why go through that when you have Master Waterproofing at your service.

Our water pipe busted in the downstairs bathroom. It was a total disaster. Our neighbor gave the number of Master Waterproofing. They came that day, looked at the pipe, gave us a rundown of how they would fix it. They started the work, and the next day, it was clean. They were professionals, alright. We were really satisfied.

Had my backup sewer valve installed by Master Waterproofing. They dug up my lawn, and when the work was done, they fixed my lawn back up. Their work was good, and now, I call them if there’s an emergency. My wife recommended them to her sister, and she loved their work as well.

One side of our lawn used to get flooded every time it rained. It was unpleasant. A colleague of mine suggested Master Waterproofing. They came, checked it out, immediately got what needed to be done. They installed a new drainage system. They know their work very well, extremely good service and behavior.
