A sump pump removes excess water from your basement and is especially important to have during the rainy season, when flooding is more common. When the water level goes above the foundation of your home, the sump pump will kick into gear and redirect the water away from your home and into a storm drain or dry well. If your sump pump system is not working properly, or if you need to install a new unit, contact our technicians for immediate service in Round Lake.
Important: Do Not Discharge Your Sump Pump into the Local Sewer System
Make sure your current sump pump is not discharging water to the municipal sewer system. This is an outdated configuration that now violates local plumbing codes and can result in a hefty fine. If you are not sure if your sump pump is operating up to code, let us know and we will inspect your system. If we do find that it is against regulations, we will fix the problem immediately.
What Type of Sump Pump Should I Install?
Your sump pump will either be electrical or water-powered. Each type breaks off into different models: pedestal, submersible, floor sucker, and battery back-up sump pumps. The one you install will depend on your home’s needs and the flood rate in your area. Our technicians will inspect your home and recommend the ideal system for your basement.
Pedestal sump pumps are electrical and use a motor to drain water from the basement. This model is more budget-friendly than others, but it is noisier when in operation.
Submersible sump pumps are also powered by electricity. They are placed underground and work underwater. Submersible sump pumps are a greater investment, but they are more reliable and durable than other models.
Floor sucker pumps are different from traditional sump pumps. They don’t have a traditional sump pit and are placed directly on your basement floor. They are often used as reserve systems to support more traditional sump pump units.
We also recommend battery backup units. These sump pumps will automatically turn on if the power goes out, making it extremely useful during severe storms.
Common materials used in sump pumps are plastic or cast iron. Plastic sump pumps are easier on the budget, while cast iron pumps are more durable.
Your sump pump can develop problems if it is the wrong size or if it was incorrectly installed. If your sump pump is over ten years old, you may also start to notice a drop in efficiency. Call us at (847) 855-0000 for immediate repair or replacement.
