Sump Pump Installation and Replacement in Detroit
Dependable Sump Pump Installation and Replacement Services in Detroit
If you rely on a sump pump for your home or business, you know how vital it is that your system is working efficiently. Your sump pump is designed to prevent ground or rainwater from entering your basement and potentially causing damage. This system works by allowing water from around and under your property to drain into the sump pump pit. The water that is collected is then pumped out and away from your foundation.
Water leaks and standing water can create significant damage to your foundation. It is important to make sure your sump pump is always performing at its best.
What We Check For in Sump Pumps
Several components make up your sump pump system. When you contact us for repairs, we will provide a detailed inspection to ensure we pinpoint the real problem, ensuring we provide the right repair the first time around. The professionals at Birmingham Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling suggest having your system inspected and cleaned at least once a year. Our technicians will inspect your pit — this is where the water collects until it is pumped out. It is essential for your pit is the correct size to prevent overflow.
We will also check your sump pump cover, which is important in preventing moisture from collecting in your basement. We then inspect your check valve. This valve stops water from flowing back down into the pit once the pump shuts off. We will also inspect your discharge location. If this location is too close to your property, it could still be a water damage risk. We also want to make sure your discharge location is as far from any neighboring properties as well.
