Our trained Benjamin Franklin Plumbers handle both submersible and pedestal sump pumps. They bring years of experience to ensuring your sump pump is giving you the best protection from flooding.
How Do Sump Pumps Work?
Sump pumps belong where your home is most likely to collect water first: its lowest point. They are activated when a device, known as a float switch, rises due to elevated water levels.
Once activated, the pump’s hose transports water to a safe location. Since many sump pumps typically work most during bad weather, they should have a sump pump battery backup allowing them to run during power outages.
There are two types of sump pumps:
Submersible – These work by sitting in or under the water they are pumping.
Pedestal pumps – These pumps are kept above the water on a stand, making them easier to reach, maintain, and repair.
Like any machine, a sump pump is subject to necessary repairs, maintenance, and installation. Is yours ready for an emergency? Contact All Seasons. We’ll send a Benjamin Franklin Plumber to make sure your pump is ready for any emergency.
