Sump Pump Repair

What is a Sump Pump?

sump pump is designed to protect your home (primarily your basement) from water damage caused from flooding. It functions by removing excess water buildup gathered from your basement’s waterproofing system and redirecting the accumulated water away from your property towards a storm drain, keeping your home dry and safe from harm. You can trust Butler to provide top quality sump pump repair services in Edmonton and surrounding areas!

Sump Pump Repair and Maintenance

There are several easy ways you can preserve the health of your sump pump by performing a simple manual inspection. Typically, inspecting your sump pump once a year should be sufficient, however depending on how often your foundation is braving harsh watery weather; you may want to consider looking at it more often. Dirt, gravel, and other forms of debris should be removed from the sump pump and the barrel upon inspecting it. Failure to remove the buildup after a period of time could reduce its ability to drain water, or it could clog the sump pump completely which would require you to undergo sump pump repair. Trust the experienced professionals at Butler plumbing for all of your sump pump repair & sump pump maintenance needs, we’re here to serve you!

Seasonal Considerations

During winter, to avoid the need for sump pump repair services in the summer, it would be wise to disconnect all outdoor hoses. If this isn’t done, water left sitting in a connected hose can freeze, causing premature sump pump failure or a blown connection in your basement. When water is discharged outside during the winter, it can create harmful ice patches. A good solution to this is to redirect the water into the building sewer. This requires written permission from the city of Edmonton.

Sump Pump Battery Backups

Because sump pumps are electrical, power outages or other mechanical problems can cause them to fail which can result in sub-surface water entering your basement. It’s important to have a secondary battery backup for existing sump pump ready to take on the work when this occurs. Another thing to consider when carrying out sump pump maintenance is to understand that it is mechanical, which means that even with proper care, it still has a limited lifespan. When it comes to this point, or even if you are having problems conducting a sump pump repair yourself, it may be a good time to call a professional.
