Chicago Sump Pump Repair & Installation
A sump pump is one of those essential systems you rarely think about—until you find that you really need it. It’s usually found in a corner of your basement, in a hole called a sump pit. It’s designed to pump out water that collects in the pit, often as a result of flooding. That means it’s important to make sure you keep it in working order, so it can do its job and prevent water damage to your home.
Sump Pump Repair Experts at Your Service
Just like your other household appliances and equipment, sump pumps should be regularly inspected for wear and tear. And when it comes to sump pumps, you actually need to take the time of year into consideration. In early spring, for example, thawing and excess rain can cause the ground to become saturated, forcing your sump pump to work harder to keep water out of your basement.
In addition, if your local area has recently experienced a drought or you simply haven’t had to operate your sump pump in a long time, it might not be operational when needed and could need a tune-up. Luckily, our local plumbers have experience installing, repairing and replacing sump pumps, so don’t hesitate to give us a call if you need assistance.
