A sump pump has one main job: to prevent flooding in a home or business. Traditionally, sump pumps are installed in a pit or basement so that it can pump upwards. When water enters a building, it flows to its lowest point. If a sump pump is installed, this is the pit or reservoir. Two of the most common types of sump pumps available are submersible and pedestal sump pumps. When you contact us for plumbing services, we will help you determine the best option for your situation.
