Sump Pumps

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.

I had a sewer line leaking in the basement where flooring and part of a wall had to be removed. They also had to remove a toilet and replace that connection to the sewer line. .The pipes were repaired, concrete repaired and toilet reinstalled. This was a big job. They knew exactly what they were doing and the repair is all done. They were easy to schedule with, courteous and professional. Highly recommend!!
