Is your basement excessively damp? Does it flood in the spring? Basements that are prone to flooding can really benefit from sump pumps. Designed to pull up excess water, sump pumps are a great addition to any property. Your new sump pump won’t just prevent flood damage in your home, it will also stop mold from growing in your basement and protect the foundation from damage.
Sump Pump Benefits Include:
If you already own a sump pump, then you know all the great benefits they have to offer. But did you know that you can’t just install a sump pump and forget about it? Sump pump maintenance is important if you want to pump to keep working, last longer and be ready for emergencies when you need them.

Strange noises such as churning, whirring or grinding coming from the sump pump can indicate that some type of foreign substance got stuck inside the pump. Another indicator that your sump may need to be serviced or replaced is a strong odor, which could signal some backed-up material. If you see rising water in the pump, it may have stopped working altogether.
Every sump pump will need to be replaced eventually, regardless if you purchase a top-of-the-line model or not. As technology advances, sump pumps have improved as well. If you installed a sump pump a long time ago, it may be time to replace it. Newer sump pumps may be able to protect your basement more thoroughly and efficiently because they need less power than older models.

If you’re having issues with your sump pump, call a professional plumber in Airdrie at the first sign of trouble. It’s better to be safe than deal with a flooded basement.
It is recommended that you test your sump pump at least once a year to make sure it is working properly. To do this, take a large bucket of water to the basement and carefully pour it into the sump pump pit.

Check for any leaks in the discharge pipe and make sure the majority of the water is pumped out. A few inches at the bottom of the sump pump pit is normal.
Although most sump pumps are installed when a house is first being built, we can install a sump pump at any time to protect your home from flooding and water damage. During the installation process:
