How Sump Pumps Are Installed

If you’ve experienced problems with flooding in your home in the past, it’s an experience you won’t want to repeat. A flooded home or basement is a mess to clean up, and the water may damage your home’s foundation or some of your possessions. The best way to prevent your home from flooding due to high water tables or a burst pipe is by calling a plumbing installation expert to install a sump pump.

Sump Pump Installation

There are two basic types of sump pump, submersible and pedestal, both of which run on electrical power or with a battery. But no matter which type you end up using, a sump pump is usually installed at the lowest point of your basement. A technician digs a pit into the ground, otherwise known as the “sump,” into which is placed a large basin. As water flows into the basin and then through a discharge pipe, where a motor helps suck in the water and carry it out with your wastewater or to a well. From this point, the steps of installation differ for each type of system.

A submersible pump has a waterproof encasement so that it may be installed inside of the sump. The motor turns an impeller, which uses centrifugal force to push water through an outlet pipe near the top of the pit. A pedestal sump pump is installed above the sump, but a pipe leading down into the pit sucks up water in the same way as a submersible pump.

Why Trust a Professional

Sump pump installation is a job that’s best left to the professionals. Professional plumbers are trained to install these mechanical devices properly and check that they are work as they should. While the sump pump may fail over time due to mechanical issues, early failure is usually the result of improper installation. If your unit is the wrong size, if your sump is not deep enough in the ground, or if the unit is placed incorrectly, you may be left with a flooded basement once again.
