Does Your Home Need a Sump Pump?
Tuscaloosa has had some of the worst floods in Alabama, and it’s not going to stop any time soon. Water damage has serious consequences, including damaged appliances, furniture, and personal belongings, as well as structural damage that can make your home unsafe. Standing water will also promote the growth of mildew and mold, which can be harmful to your health.
Apart from floods, there are several ways water can get into your home. A burst or leaky pipe can cause just as much serious damage to your walls and floors as a storm.
Having a sump pump will give you peace of mind knowing that your home is safe from water damage. A quality sump pump installation will detect any excess moisture and move it out of your home. You don’t even need to switch it on yourself, as most sump pumps have automatic water detection systems in place.
Types of Sump Pumps
There are two main types of sump pumps, and each has its strengths and weaknesses. Both options are available in a range of power levels, sizes, brands, and styles.
- Submersible pump: This type of pump sits underwater, which results in quieter and more effective operation. However, they can be difficult to access for repairs and maintenance.
- Pedestal pump: Pedestal pumps sit on a small pedestal above the water. They are slightly noisier than a submersible pump but easier to maintain and repair.
Sump pumps can also be installed with different power sources. Options that don’t rely on power from the grid, such as battery-back-up pumps and water-powered pumps, are popular for areas like ours that are prone to storms. Our expert technicians will help you choose the best sump pump for your needs.
Is your basement wet, but it’s dry outside? You might have a slab leak. We can fix that too!
Sump Pump Problems
Just like any other mechanical appliance, sump pumps need regular maintenance and care to function correctly. An incorrect sump pump installation can lead to massive problems, especially if you buy a pump that’s too small for your needs.
At Premier Service Company, Inc., we’ve seen every type of sump pump repair problem under the sun. Our trained technicians have worked on every type and model of pump, which allows them to quickly identify and repair any problems.
We also strongly recommend regular sump pump maintenance. It may feel like a waste of money, but taking care of your pump ensures it will work 100% when you need it. Avoid making the mistake of saving on maintenance only to pay thousands of dollars for repairs, probably at the worst possible time.
