Sump Pump Repair & Installation Glen Ellyn & Lombard
Protect Your Basement
Your home’s sump pump is an important piece of equipment. Its main function is to protect your basement and the foundation of your home from water damage in the event of water accumulation. When flooding occurs, sump pumps remove excess standing water from the area and redirect it away from your house, typically into municipal storm drains.
If you are interested in having a new sump pump installed or you need repairs on your existing unit, contact 24/7 Plumbing, Sewer & Water. We can help you make sure your sump pump is working properly and that your home is safe from the threat of flooding and water damage.
What is a sump pump and how does it work?
A sump pump is a tool that is placed in a home to pump excess water away in the event of a flooding related issue. A sump pump system features, among other things, a heavy-duty pumping mechanism that pumps out any water that has accumulated in the basin.You’ll often see sump pumps in basements, as this is where flooding from pipes and rain storms typically occur. To get the water away from the basement, a perimeter drain encourages that flow of water into a well or storm drain. Our plumbing experts can provide you with exceptional installation services to ensure that it is equipped properly to suit the needs of your home.
Why do you need a unit in your home?
If you live in a flood-prone area that sends water into your basement or crawlspace when large or prolonged rain storms occur, a sump pump is a wise idea. You may also want one to guard against water leaks and other plumbing malfunctions. Sump pumps typically kick on automatically when water is sensed, so you don’t have to worry about being home to activate it. Without a mechanism to pump out excess water, you can experience flooding and water damage which can lead to mold growth and structural issues, not to mention odors and nasty messes to clean up.

What are the different sump pump types?
You have two main types of sump pumps to choose from. These include:
Submersible Pump: The one you’ll most commonly see in residential homes is the submersible model. This unit features a pump that’s located under the water, providing a quieter and more efficient operation. This type lasts longer and is hidden inside the basin of the sump. It’s also easier to operate than other types.
Pedestal Pump: A pedestal type pump feature an impeller at the base and an above-water motor that can be much noisier. While it is more visible, you can easily get access to it in the case of maintenance or repair. This type also works well with deep yet skinny sump pits and can be more versatile to use.
