A sump pump is easy to forget about until it stops working. Usually tucked away in a hole in the corner of the basement floor, a reliable sump pump will last for many years.
Disposing of the old sump pump and replacing it with a new one involves some light plumbing and electrical work. Battery-operated, backup sump pumps are a also good idea for added security and peace of mind when the power fails. After all, what’s the first thing to go in a thunderstorm? One of the most common causes of basement floods is due to a power failure – not a sump pump failure. This is a plumbing and electrical job that we can handle.
