We Can Make Sure Your Sump Pump Is Working Correctly

The function of a sump pump is simple—to keep water from damaging foundations or basements. Making sure the pump continues to do its job over the years, however, is not so simple. It doesn’t have to be difficult though because you can hire our plumbing services and a sump pump technician to make sure everything is working properly. From choosing the right pump, installing, and maintaining it, our Skokie & Niles plumbers here at Aqua Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Services gets it done from start to finish.

Types of Sump Pumps

It starts with choosing the right pump. And there’s a wide variety of pumps which can be broken into two main categories:

  • Pedestal
  • Submersible

    Submersibles don’t last as long as pedestal pumps, but each has their own strengths. Ask your sump pump technician to learn more. Within these two categories is a range of prices and options.

    One of the main things pumps vary on is the amount of power they generate. Depending on the size of your basement or crawl space you may need extra power. Certain types of construction require multiple sump pumps. Whatever the case may be, you need to make sure you have the appropriate amount of power to meet your drainage needs.

    The options can be overwhelming, but choosing the right pump ensures your basement or crawl space won’t be flooded. And in a place like Illinois, where severe winter storms often knock out power, having a battery backup for your sump pump is also very important. Flooding can lead to expensive damages requiring extensive repairs. A well-functioning sump pump removes water before it has a chance to do damage.

    4 Signs you need our Skokie sump pump services:

    • Making strange noises -
      If you are hearing odd noises come from your sump pump, it can be an early indicator of worn or damaged parts. If you are hearing rattling or grinding noises it could mean you have a jammed impeller. Call our Skokie sump pump repair team for help!
    • Runs all the time -
      Is your sump pump running all the time? It could be that it's a switch problem. The float is what provides a smooth operation of the on off switch. If your switch isn't functioning properly it could render the float inoperable. 
    • Visible Rust - 
      Can you see rust or brown stuff on the battery terminal? This could be iron bacteria, which actually feeds off the iron in the water and causes the discoloration. This can possibly cause problems for your water flow in your drainage system. Contact our Skokie sump pump services for expert advice.
    • Vibrates excessively when running - 
      Do you notice your pump vibrating excessively? This could be due to the impellers being bent or damage by hard debris that the pump sucked up. Rebending the impeller is nearly impossible to do correctly, you'll need to call our professional Skokie sump pump repair team for help.
