Services

A sump pump collects ground water in a sump tank, which is also known as a basin, crock, or pit. When the ground water fills the tank to a certain level, the float travels up a float rod and activates a switch, causing the motor to turn on. The motor then removes the water from the tank and discharges it away from the house.

If you are having trouble with your sump pump give Zeek Plumbing a call for help at 866-635-0200.

Types of Sump Pumps

  • Submersible – It is the most common type and the install takes place during home construction. The pump has a cover inside of the tank.
  • Non-submersible (Pedestal) – This type consists of a motor and a base. The install of the motor is above the basement floor. The hose connects to the motor and then travels into the sump tank. These types of sump pumps are less expensive and the install can occur at any time.

The sump pump is a reliable and relatively inexpensive way to prevent flooding in your home. Typical sump pumps usually lasts 15-20 years. It is necessary to ensure that the sump pump is functioning properly in order to avoid potential basement flooding.

Sump Pump Maintenance Tips

  • Remove the sump pump cover and clear the tank of any mud or stones.
  • Flush the system with a hose or bucket of water.
  • When activating the pump, it should run smoothly. If not, call Zeek Plumbing to check for worn or damaged parts.
  • Inspect the float to see that it travels freely on the float rod.
  • Check the discharge pipe for or any type of obstruction so discharged water flows freely away from the house.

We recommend performing this maintenance seasonally. If your pump activates on a regular basis, it may be wise to consider a backup.

Purchased a new natural gas grill and needed it to be hooked up to the gas line. Called Zeek in the morning and they came and hooked it up the same day! They were extremely professional. I would highly recommend Zeek Plumbing and will definitely use them in the future should the need arise.

We used Zeek a few weeks ago for a clogged pipe. At that time we noticed a leak in our septic pipe in the basement. So we asked them to give us a price to replace the pipe. The price sound reasonable so we set it up for them to come back. Tim, Rj and Rich where here 8:00am sharp and went right to work. We where only without toilets for a few hours. They did a amazing job and where finished by 3 pm. All 3 guys are extremely professional and and very friendly. They work well together and all enjoy what they are doMy wife and I would highly recommend them.
