It is important to have a professional plumber manage your sump pump and ensure it is regularly serviced.

Which System Do You Require?

You can have various sump pumps installed in your home and it is essential to ensure that you are aware of what works best for you. We can offer you an array of options and assist you in selecting the kind of pumping system that will work perfectly for your budget and your entire home.

A pedestal unit is capable of pumping water out of the drain faster than what the drain can flow. A unit with a battery backup system can be easily triggered remotely so you don’t have to worry about wading into flooded areas to turn the system on. It is also possible for you to turn the unit on even when there is no power at home. For more details on the kind of units we offer, get in touch with the staff at Ottawa Plumbing.

 

Some of the Common Problems with Sump Pumps

As time goes by, your pump is eventually going to run into problems. However, the good thing is that most of the problems can be averted by familiarizing with the system and taking extra caution. Majority of the sump pumps usually clog after they trap the wrong debris. The debris clogs the pipes. The pipe can also clog the pump as well. It is possible to get rid of the debris yourself but it is better to look for a professional to do the job. At some point, the sump pump motors are likely to stop working. If you realize your sump pump is getting old, having the motor replaced early enough can be the best option. In addition, the sump pump’s remote starter can stop working in case it is shorted during a flood. Although it is quite rare, it can still occur. See to it that your sump pump is regularly serviced to avert issues that can be prevented.
