Sump Pumps | Back-up Sump Pumps
We’re Specialists at Keeping Your Basement Dry and Your Valuables Damage-Free.
A wet basement can cause more damage than you might realize.
Besides the obvious watery mess, there’s also the potential for mold, mildew, damage to your walls and flooring, plus damage to personal items – some potentially valuable and one-of-a-kind – that might be in harm’s way and caught up when your basement starts to flood.
Fortunately, Your 1 Plumber can help keep your basement water- and damage-free in 4 important ways:
- Sump pump installation
- Back-up sump pump installation
- Ongoing sump pump maintenance
- Sump pump repairs
Sump Pump Installation | Back-up Sump Pump Installation
If you don’t have at least a main sump pump and yet live in a neighborhood or home prone to basement flooding, then sooner or later your luck is bound to run out.
Our advice? Keep luck out of it by contacting Your 1 Plumber for sump pump and/or back-up sump installation.
It’s important to remember that main sump pumps run on electricity. So if your home should lose power while the pump is operating, the pump stops working and the water starts building up. That’s when a back-up sump pump comes in handy. Whether you opt for a battery- or water-powered model, your back-up pump will engage as soon – and for as long – as your main pump is out of commission. That way, you can be sure water won’t accumulate and that neither your basement nor personal belongings will be needlessly damaged…or ruined.
Your primary sump pump may not be enough when it comes to heavy rain and severe weather. What kind of emergency or backup sump pump do you have?
When the power goes out, your battery-powered sump pump will kick in immediately and take over until power is restored. Battery-powered pumps also have their own switch, so if your main sump pump fails for some other reason than a power outage, the back-up pump will activate automatically once the water hits a certain level. A fully-charged battery can keep a back-up sump pump running for up to seven hours.
If you have a consistent supply of municipal water, then your better choice for a back-up sump is water powered. By deriving their power from your home water supply vs. a battery, they can run indefinitely, and that decreases the potential of basement flooding and related damage exponentially.
Sump Pump Maintenance & Repairs
Once you enroll in our Plumbing Service Agreement program, all your plumbing – including sump pumps – will be inspected by Your 1 Plumber once a year. That will do wonders for your peace of mind, just as it already does for current enrollees.
Even with annual maintenance, however, repair issues can still arise. If so, you can count on Your 1 Plumber for the right solution in the shortest amount of time possible.
What’s more, we provide ongoing maintenance and repair services for all sump pump makes and models. Just what you’d expect from the only plumber you’ll ever need: Your 1 Plumber.
