About Sump Pumps in Edmonton
Sump Pumps help keep ground water and overflow from flooding your basement or home. The sump pump sits in a reservoir or basin, called a sump pit that collects snowmelt and ground water. As the sump pit fills with water, it will pump excess water out through a drainage pipe and away from your home. Sump pumps are commonly located in the basement or the lowest area of your home. It is essential for all home owners in Edmonton to have a sump pump installed and serviced regularly to prevent your basement from flooding.
Why Should I Purchase A Sump Pump?
Your basement is subject to water seepage and flooding due to a large storm or if snowmelt is larger than normal. When these acts of nature happen, the water that saturates the ground begins to seep into basements. Without a sump pump, you risk flooding your basement which can cause not only substantial water damage, but it can also allow debris, bacteria, organic matter and other unpleasant things to come into your home. Once your basement floods you will be facing at costly repairs and mold and mildew issues. A sump pump helps protect your home and prevents your basement from flooding.
About 24 Hour Emergency Sump Pump Repair in Edmonton
Sump pumps have a useable life of 5-7 years and can deteriorate because they are exposed to water, dirt and other debris. If your pump is running constantly, not pumping enough water through the drainage pipes or not working at all it needs to be repaired. Problems can also be caused by not having a backup pump or if the pump is not large enough to work for your home. ProSolutions will repair any issues that you may be having. Our technicians are available 24 hours, seven days a week.
Sump Pump Options in Edmonton
Home and business owners have two options for sump pumps, a pedestal model and a submersible model.
Pedestal models consist of a float on a rod that connects to the sump pump motor. As your sump pit fills with water, the float will rise until it reaches the level your sump pump is set to kick on at; the sump pump then sucks the water out of the pit and directs it away from the home through a drainage pipe. Pedestal sump pumps run off electrical power.
Submersible sump pumps sit at the bottom of the sump pit and filter out water through the bottom of the pump. The submersible pump contains a float that activates the pump when the water rises. Submersible pumps run off electrical power.
Our technicians will also recommend that you have a backup sump pump installed to protect your home in the event of a power loss. Backup sump pumps come in two configurations; battery and water powered.
A battery-powered sump pump works off a battery that maintains a constant charge through your home’s electrical power. While these units are great for short power outages, you may have a situation on your hands when the power runs out in the battery, and your home has not had electrical power restored.
Water powered backup sump pumps do not require any electrical power. They run using your home’s water source. In order for your water powered backup sump pump to work properly, it is important to have a municipal water supply with pressure between 40-100psi. Our technicians will be able to recommend the type of backup pump that is best for your home or business.
