Sump Pump Installation
Sump Pump Installation, Repair, and Replacement in the greater Cleveland Metropolitan, East & West Areas
What does a Sump Pump Do?
The sump pump sits in a hole that is lower than your basement or crawlspace. When water enters into the basement, it flows to the lowest point (where the sump pump is located) and fills it. 99% of sump pumps that are installed run off the home’s electricity. Once water enters the sump pump’s hole, it then turns on and starts pumping and directing the water out and away from your home to a place that is a non-problematic area. An electric-powered sump pump will direct the water out into the city storm drain or where local codes require.

Homeowners and businesses with basements and crawl spaces share the same concern – flooding and moisture.
We care about protecting your home and your belongings from damages that may occur from basement flooding. The right sump pump can save thousands of dollars in damage when flooding occurs, and provide protection every day from groundwater and accumulated moisture.
If you’ve ever experienced a flooded basement, you already know how much damage it can cause. Sump Pumps play an important role by protecting your home from storm water and groundwater seepage. Even a small amount of water leaking into your basement can cause thousands of dollars in damage and possibly cause hazardous mold and mildew growth.
If your basement is at risk of flooding, or you have already unfortunately had a flooded basement, or want to prevent the effects of basement flooding, a sump pump is generally considered to be the best safeguard.
Though sump pumps are generally installed to prevent basement flooding, they can also be used to help dampness by lowering the water table under the foundation.

Testing Your Sump Pump Regularly
It is important to test your sump pump regularly to make sure it will operate when the next big downpour occurs.
How to Test a Sump Pump – Test it by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump should turn on, remove the water from the sump pit and then shut itself off a few seconds later.
Battery Backup Sump Pumps
A battery backup sump pump or a water powered backup system (that uses your home’s water supply pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from flooding. If your home experiences a power outage during a storm when your sump pump is greatly needed or if your primary sump pump fails often due to frequent power outages then a battery backup sump pump will help protect your home.
