Sump Pump Repairs & Sump Pump Installation

A SUMP PUMP IS VITAL FOR YOUR HOME'S DRAINAGE SYSTEM

drains

When winter season is coming to an end, the springtime thaw can cause basement flooding problems for many homeowners in the Burlington, Oakville, and Mississauga areas in Ontario.

Melting snow & ice will saturate the thawing ground in no time, and once the water stops being absorbed, it starts to collect in and around basements and has the potential to cause thousands of dollars in damage if it’s not removed. It’s time to make sure your sump pump is operating as it should. Check out our Specials and see if we're offering a deal on sump pump repairs.

What Does a Sump Pump Do?

A sump pump is used to remove that water that has accumulated in the sump basin inside the basement of your home. The pump will handle regular flooding problems and solve dampness issues when the water table rises above your foundation, due to ground saturation from the spring thaw or heavy rains.

Sump pumps are able to move the water away from the house to places such as a dry well or municipal storm drain, where it’s no longer problematic.

The sump pump is installed in the lowest part of your basement, keeping the area under your house dry to prevent it from flooding and damaging your foundation.

Submersible sump pumps are installed directly inside the concrete sump basin, and the electric motor is sealed off to prevent the electrical motor from coming into direct contact with water.

Pedestal pumps have a motor which is mounted above the sump, driving an impeller via a vertical shaft.

Both types of sump pumps can be either automatic or manually operated on demand.

Sump pumps are also installed to control high water table problems of surface soil in business & industrial applications.
