Repair Service For Your Sump Pump
Sump pumps are placed in low-lying areas, particularly where basement flooding happens. Sump pumps channel water away from the house to any place where the is no longer a threat of flooding. This may include a municipal storm drain or a dry well. A sump pump turns on when the water inside the sump pit reaches a certain level.
Sump pumps are installed in most modern homes built over the last 25 years. Older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to eliminate any potential flooding. McCoy Plumbing can inspect your home to determine if your pump needs to be replaced or repaired. We can also add sump pumps to homes that do not currently have one.
Sump Pump Installation Made Easy
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home’s electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out. This backup comes in handy in cringe moments when torrential rain or flooding occurs. If your sump pump doesn't turn for any reason, a battery backup will trigger the pump and protect your basement from water damage. A McCoy Plumbing technician can show you all the options available to you and make recommendations as to which type of pump is best for your home.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Sump pump maintenance is a quick and easy way to ensure that your pump will work when you need it most. You can run a simple test by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit. Once the water reaches a certain level, it will trigger the pump and remove the water from the pit. The pump will instantly shut off once the water is pumped out. You need to ensure that the float and the check valve move freely.
The sump pump needs to be cleaned from time to time to ensure that the discharge line opening is free of obstructions. A regular cleaning allows water to be pumped through the line and out of your basement. McCoy plumbers are on hand to clean your sump pump whenever you need us. We can clean and replace all parts so that your pump runs smoothly every time.
