Types of Sump Pumps

There are two main types of sump pumps. A pedestal sump pump has a motor mounted above the sump pit. The advantage is that this pump is easier to service and lasts up to 30 years, but the disadvantage is that it’s more visible and possibly unsightly to some.

The other kind of pump is submersible. The motor is mounted inside the pump and is known for powering through debris well. It runs more quietly than a pedestal pump. However, a submersible pump has a shorter average life of up to 15 years. It also costs more than a pedestal sump pump.

Maintaining Your Sump Pump

Most of the time, your sump pump will sit quietly with no action. But it needs to be ready to go if a pipe bursts or if the spring rains bring flooding. We recommend routinely checking your pump to ensure it is ready to go when needed.

Some simple things you can do include:

  • Inspecting the power cord and making sure the pump has power
  • Cleaning the screens
  • Testing the unit by dumping a bucket of water into the sump to see if it turns on. If it doesn’t turn on, see if the float or check valve need to be replaced
  • Removing any debris that is blocking the sump
  • Unplugging the pump and remove any debris that got inside

Akron Sump Pump Installations

If you have water problems in your basement, you may benefit greatly from the addition of a sump pump. Luckily, our technicians at Wilson Plumbing & Heating can install one for you!

We will dig through the concrete of your basement floor to create an area for the sump pit. Then we will set the pit in and replace the concrete. Once the concrete cures, we will run plumbing to an acceptable outlet, away from your home’s foundation. We are familiar with residential building codes and we will know where to allow the drainage to run with no code violations.

Some homeowners may have inherited sump pump issues when they purchased an existing home. Older homes may have sump pump systems that drain into municipal sanitary sewers, which is not always acceptable in Northeastern Ohio towns. We can reroute your sump pump plumbing lines to acceptable outlets.

Any other questions about sump pumps? We’re here to help. Give our Akron sump pump pros a call at (330) 400-3334 and we’ll provide a quick assessment for you.
