SUMP PUMPS IN CHICAGO ARE CRUCIAL TO EVERY HOMEOWNER
Sump pumps are often found in the basement along with a water basin. When water enters the basement, either through heavy rainfall, melting snow or flooding, the sump pump removes the excess water and directs it away from your home. Sump pumps are especially important for homes located on floodplains or low-lying areas.
Since sump pumps usually rely on electricity, some units feature a battery back up. Other units are controlled by the home’s pressurized water supply, eliminating the need for electricity (but possibly costing more in water disposal).
Sump pumps play an important part in controlling the level of moisture in the home, as well as providing a safer and more reliable home structure as moisture can cause structural damage over time.
Sewage ejector pumps work much the same as water pumps but move sewage to main city-systems or septic tanks.
SHOULD YOU INSTALL A PEDESTAL OR SUBMERSIBLE UNIT?
Choosing the right sump pump depends on your specific needs. There are two main types of sump pumps: pedestal and submersible.
Pedestal Sump Pumps: The motor for the pedestal unit is above the pump itself. This makes it much easier to access the motor for repairs. Pedestal pumps last about 25-30 years, significantly longer than submersible pumps. Pedestal pumps are also less expensive to replace. However, they do require proper installation and regular cleaning to remain operational.
Submersible Sump Pumps: These pumps are specifically sealed to protect electrical elements. While submersible pumps only last 5-15 years and are more costly to replace, they don’t require as much cleaning as pedestal units.
Other factors to look for when deciding on the right sump pump include:
Automatic or Manual
Amount of Power Required
Power Chord Length
Phase and Voltage
Water Level Sensing Switch Type
Backup System and Alarm

SUMP PUMP REPAIR
If you are looking for sump pump repair experts, give us a call. We have the right solution for you!
Common sump pump problems:
Power Failure: Power outages without a backup battery or backup system is a common issue. we recommend installing a backup sump pump to kick on in case the main pump fails due to a power outage.
Switch Malfunction: Is the switch turning on or off constantly? Is it getting stuck to the wall of the basin? We can inspect the problem and find an ideal solution.
Frozen Water Discharge Pipe: If the pipe was installed incorrectly, water may gather in the discharge pipe and cause it to freeze. This will result in water being sent back into the home.
We also recommend proper maintenance so you won’t have to deal with unexpected issues. Sump pumps, sewage ejectors, and basins require maintenance at least once a year to help reduce risk of potential problems.
If your current unit is having problems or doesn’t seem to be working, contact us immediately to keep your basement dry. Timely service is crucial to increasing the life of your sump pump and helping you avoid costly repairs.
