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.

5-STAR GOOGLE REVIEWS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

We are sooo happy with our experiences with Zeek! We had them out twice - they did a bunch of repairs for us and then when it turned out the problem was deeper than we thought they came back and stuck with it until they figured it out. They were professional, neat, safe and thorough. Huge thanks to Rich for coming out to diagnose the problem and the whole team for hanging in until it was fixed!

My family and I cannot thank Zeek Plumbing enough! We had a horrible experience with Best Buy trying to get our new washer/dryer installed when we moved into our new house. The team Best Buy hired was a no call/no show twice! Then they said they didn't have the parts they needed, so we ended up canceling their service. We finally came across Zeek and Bill was able to come out the next morning. He was very nice and professional and clearly an expert in his field. The job was done perfectly within a few hours and now our new home is up and running like a well oiled machine. We will definitely be calling Zeek back for anything needed in the future. Thank you!

ZEEK plumbing came through when our Water Heater failed. Called other plumbers but ZEEK was the only one to offer and on the spot estimate and immediate response to replace our water heater.I have used ZEEK before and once again a most professional crew arrived and completed the installation in a timely proficient manner. I would highly recommend ZEEK to anyone's plumbing needs. They truly focus on customer care which is evident in the services performed, THANK YOU ZEEK!

I had a leak from my upstairs bathroom which was coming from an old 3” copper drain pipe connected to the toilet. Tim from Zeek Plumbing replaced the 3’ section of drain pipe with plastic and braced the new pipe to make sure it remained sloped in the right direction. Tim also reinforced the flooring under the toilet which had weakened over the years, and now the support is very strong. Tim was very professional and most importantly wanted to make sure the job was done right!
