Sump Pump Installation and Repair in Everett, Wa
Whether or not you have had your basement remodeled, you will want to consider installing a sump pump. With the possibility of flooding in any home basement, sump pumps will ensure that your valuable property is protected from water damage.
The most common place to have a sump pump installed is your basement. But they are not only for basement areas. They can be placed anywhere such as…
- Crawl spaces
- Laundry rooms
- Storage areas
Sump pumps can be placed anywhere that water can accumulate or flood.
Water can seep into a basement in a variety of ways. The problem is that you never know when it will happen. But one thing is certain and that is the fact that after it happens, it is too late.
Apollo Plumbing, here in Everett, WA, installs and repairs sump pumps. They are not complicated to install, however it can be quite a physically challenging project and will definitely swallow up a whole weekend or two for the average do-it-yourselfer. If they are installed wrong, there is danger of electric shock or worse.
There are two common types of Everett sump pumps installed in homes that we recommend; either submersible or pedestal.
Submersible Sump Pumps
Submersible pumps are fully concealed in a sump pit. The sump pit is a water collection area that the pump sits in. A hole is jack-hammered into the concrete foundation of the home in a low lying area where the water would flow down to collect. The sump pump is installed and sealed into the hole where it contains a collection area for the water. The flood water will then be pumped out.
Advantages to the submersible pump:
- Sealed system that fully conceals the pump in the sump pit
- Quieter since the engine is submersed
- Operates under water which cools the motor
Pedestal or Upright Sump Pumps
Pedestal pump motors sit and operate above the water level.
Advantages to the pedestal pump:
- Cost less
- Easier to repair or install since it is above ground
- Needs a shallower or narrower pit, requires less space
