Sewage Pumps

A sewage pump is used to pump residential sewage out to the elevated city sewer line or their septic tanks in rural areas. These are often used to remove excess moisture that has accumulated in the collecting sump pit, which is an unfortunate but common occurrence in lower levels of many homes in the Seattle area. It is built in a way so the accumulated water is sent away from the house and redirected to places like municipal storm drains or a dry well. We'll make sure there is proper pipe insulation and waterproofing as well when we do repairs or replacements.

Sump Pumps

A sump is a low space that collects liquids. It is also referred to as an infiltration basin used to manage surface runoff water. The most common location is the lowest point in a basement or crawl space, into which flows water that seeps or is piped in from the outside. Sump pumps are placed within the sump to remove excess moisture and ensure that floods do not occur. If the pump fails during a storm, it can become an emergency quickly. This is why we provide repair, replacement, and installation services for them and can do so efficiently.

What Is A Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a device installed in a sump pit dug into the lowest point of your house, such as the basement or crawl space. This small but important addition to your Seattle home helps prevent your basement from flooding.

Here’s how it works: Most of the time, the pump is on standby, simply waiting until it’s needed. When it begins to rain heavily, the soil around your house becomes over-saturated with moisture. Excess groundwater flows down toward the sump pit, and the pit begins to fill with water. This flow activates the sump pump float switch and turns on the pump.

By removing water from the pit and draining it into a nearby storm drain, dry well, or detention pond, the sump pump prevents the groundwater from rising to the level of your basement floor, which would cause your basement or crawlspace to flood. In this way, you can think of a sump pump as an extra piece of flood insurance for your Seattle home!

Benefits Of A Sump Pump

  • Prevents Basement Flooding: A sump pump removes excess water from your basement, preventing costly damage and potential health hazards.
  • Protects Property Value: With a functional sump pump in place, you can avoid expensive repairs and maintain the value of your property.
  • Fights Mold Growth: Excess moisture in basements creates an ideal environment for mold growth. A sump pump keeps your basement dry, preventing the spread of harmful mold.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing your property is protected from water damage gives you peace of mind, especially during Seattle’s rainy season.

Types Of Sump Pumps

Sump pumps are either primary or backup, and your system should have one of each especially if your home is at risk of flooding. The primary does most of the work, most of the time. The backup is only there if the primary pump fails, or if it can’t keep up with the inflow of water to the sump.

There are two main types of pumps: submersible and pedestal. Either type can function as a primary or backup sump pump. You can also divide backup sump pumps based on their backup power source: battery or water.

Submersible pumps: Submersible pumps are bulky devices. They sit right inside the sump pit, and function while underwater (hence, submersible). Since they sit in a pit, they run quieter than pedestal pumps but are usually more expensive. They’re also harder to access for maintenance and repair.

Pedestal pumps: Pedestal pumps are long, upright devices with the pump motor sitting on top and the intake device, or impeller, at the bottom. The motor on a pedestal pump isn’t meant to get wet. These are less expensive and easier to access for repair compared to the submersible variety, but some plumbing experts consider them less reliable than submersible pumps. They’re also louder, as the motor sits above the sump pit.

How to Tell If Your Sump Pump Needs Repairs

There are  a few warning signs that your sump pump may need repairs or replacement:

  • Audible Alarms: If your sump pump has an alarm, and it goes off frequently or won’t stop, it’s a sign of malfunction.
  • Visible Damage: Check for visible cracks or damage to the pump itself. These could indicate problems with the motor or other internal components.
  • No Water Discharge: If water is not being discharged from the sump pump, it could be due to a clog or a problem with the float switch.
  • Frequent Cycling: A sump pump that turns on and off frequently may be struggling to keep up with the amount of water entering your basement. This could be a sign of a faulty pump or incorrect installation.
