Sump Pump Replacement
Sump pumps are a vital part of your plumbing system in case of flooding. If water enters your basement or lower level of your home or business, the sump pump will drain the water away from your home. Without a working sump pump, if there is heavy rainfall or another source of water leakage, you may be stuck with hefty and expensive clean-up, damage, and repairs.
There are many signs you may need a sump pump installation, including if your current one is over 10 years old, frequently turns on and off randomly, runs nonstop, makes strange noises, or doesn’t come on when it should.
Drain Pump Replacement
Drain pumps come in two main types: submersible and non-submersible. The former is placed in water, while the latter is not. They’re used to move waste water away from sites that shouldn’t have water, so it works similarly to a sewage pump.
Ejector Pump Replacement
Ejector pumps are similar to sump pumps in the sense that they look alike and they’re both installed in basements. However, they have slightly different functions: the ejector pump removes sewage from your home or business. An ejector pump basin collects the water and sewage and connects to a storm drain to send the water away from the building. After the water leaves, the pump will then be sealed to ensure that nothing enters the pump into your home.
Some sewer pumps come with an alarm, and when the alarm sounds you know there’s an issue with the system. If the alarm goes off, don’t use your water supply until the issue has been looked at and fixed by a plumber. If it doesn’t come with an alarm, other signs your ejector pump may need to be replaced include if it runs all the time or not at all, there’s a high water level in the tank, or if it’s nearing 20 years old.
Sewage Pump Replacement
Sewage pumps are generally used in basements and are installed at the lowest point of a sewage basin. They pump sewage liquids and solids directly into sewer lines. They are oftentimes used together with sump pumps; while sump pumps remove just water and liquid, sewage pumps remove both liquid and solid waste. They use gravity to push materials down plumbing systems and are relatively low maintenance.
Just like a sump pump, there are certain red flags that signal it’s time to get a new sewage pump installed. If you moved into an old home that has old plumbing systems, are hearing strange noises from your plumbing, if it’s older than 10 years old, or if it’s been a long time since you’ve gotten it serviced, chances are, you will need a replacement.
