Aurora Sump Pump Repair & Replacement

Protect Your Property from Water Damage

sump pumpThere is hardly anything more frustrating than sprucing up your basement with carpeting, decor, and electronics, only to see it virtually destroyed by flooding. To prevent a disaster such as this, a high-quality sump pump should be your first line of defense against basement flooding that can lead to extensive damage to your belongings, toxic mold, and a soggy unstable foundation. The highly qualified and experienced Aurora sump pump technicians at Prestige Plumbing, Heating & Cooling know exactly how to detect sump pump problems or failure in order to determine the next step: repair or replacement of your existing sump pump system.

How It Functions

A sump pump is a device that sits in the pit of your basement to collect excess water underground. The pit gathers excess water from your home’s drainage system and then expels the water through a discharge pipe, away from your home. A high-quality sump pump will keep your basement as well as the ground underneath it from flooding during a heavy rainstorm.

You should call in our team to help with your sump pump if:

  • Your basement has recently been flooded, or you want to protect your basement from being flooded in the future.
  • Your home was built on a flat or low-lying spot with soil that constantly absorbs water.
  • You live in an area with heavy rainfall or snow.
  • Your existing pump is over 7 years old.
  • Your existing pump constantly gets stuck or does not shut off automatically.
  • You have excess water underneath your home caused by a sloping foundation, poor run-off, or a back-flow of water coming from your gutters.
  • You hear strange vibrating noises emitting from your pump.
  • Your pump stops working due to mud blockage, a stuck or broken float switch, damaged drive shafts and impellers, or device burn-out.

The Importance of Sump Pump Maintenance

Sump pumps are installed in most homes up in the basement area, working to prevent water build up. Although many people tend to ignore that area of the home, it is very important to keep an eye out on how well your plumbing system is working. The sump pump is a crucial part of your home, and can cause damage if it is not taken care of and inspected often.

Here are the most common signs that your sump pump needs maintenance:
  • Loud, unusual noises - if you hear strange noises coming from your sump pump, there might be dirt clogging the pump. This can potentially cause a flood so make sure to schedule a maintenance service as soon as possible!
  • Unpleasant smells - if your sump pump is clogged or has mold growing inside of it, you may notice a foul odor coming emitting from it. Foul smells should always be dealt with by a professional plumber to make sure there are no issues with contamination from a sewage line.
