Sump Pump in Vancouver
Installed in the lowest part of your basement, a sump pump collects the water that flows towards it and pumps it out of your property. Sump pump installation is usually carried out after a flood has already occurred and home or business owners are afraid of it happening again. As a home or business owner in Vancouver, we recommend installing a sump pump before a flood hits.
If you already have one, it’s important to practice proper sump pump maintenance. If you’re unsure of how to go about doing this, just give Vancity Plumbing & Heating a call—we’ll be happy to help. Solving sump pump problems and keeping them happening in the first place is what we do.
Do I Need a Sump Pump?
It’s true that not every property has a sump pump. But does every one need one? The fact is, that a high percentage of people have moisture in their basement. Many of these situations involve flooding. With this in mind, keeping your basement dry should be a priority for any Vancouver home or business owner.
When doing a new sump pump installation, we will place it at the lowest point in your basement where it can best collect water, and then you can get ready to experience a dyer, mold-free, basement!
Choosing a Sump Pump
So, how do you go about choosing a basement sump pump? It’s going to depend on the type of potential water damage you’re dealing with, as well as the type of basement or crawl space in your property.
Pedestal sump pumps are exactly what they sound like—a pump placed on a pedestal. They can be used when you don’t have much space as they are quite slim. However, they’re noisier and cannot handle solids.
The most efficient style of pump, submersible pumps are placed below water, are quiet, and will not break down in an emergency situation where your property is taking in a lot of water.
If sewage is your problem. An effluent sewage pump is your answer. Effluent pumps deal with water pollution mainly and can pump solids within discharge.
Luckily for you, your home or business can determine the type of pump you need, since when it comes to price, you’ll be looking at roughly the same rates for each. And, when you work with Vancity Plumbing & Heating for your Vancouver plumbing needs, you’ll benefit from contractor rates and the most competitive pricing around.
