Why Get a Sump Pump Installation
In many parts of the country, sump pumps are primarily used in basements. As basements are less common foundational elements in our area, they are more commonly used in crawlspaces, at the lowest points in a home.
Some homes are never affected by flooding. If your home is, it likely has to do with the water table of your property. The water table is underground, and the term refers to the point at which the soil is completely saturated with water. Depending on the building foundation of your property, excess water may begin to seep out into your home at this point, causing a small flood that continues to rise. If this is common for your property (or for your neighbors’) it’s time to consider sump pump installation.
How a Sump Pump Works
A sump pump is essentially just what is sounds like. A pump moves water out of the home from its position within the sump (a pit we dig in the ground). As water fills the pit, a float raises (much like within a toilet) and at a certain depth, the motor of the pump is activated.
An outlet pipe moves water to the outside of the home from the pit, and continues to do so until there is no longer a need. The discharge pipe works much like storm drainage, and so long as you have a battery backup and schedule occasional sump pump maintenance, you won’t have to worry about the mess.
When to Schedule Sump Pump Services in Santa Fe
If you notice that your sump pump simply is not turning on, there are a couple of steps you should take first and foremost. First, you can always try resetting the circuit breaker. Second, you can look to see whether the pump has tipped over, a common occurrence.
Otherwise, be sure to schedule sump pump repair with our team. It may turn out that you need sump pump replacement (since repairing the motor is not cost effective). However, it’s worth it to know your property is protected. When you call our team, your sump pump is in good hands. We will make sure your system is running smoothly, so call Santa Fe Express Plumbing & Drain today.
