With any sump pump installation project, our first course of action is an accurate diagnosis of the problem.
On many occasions, basement water problems derive from external drainage challenges. As such, finding the source of the problem is first priority in order to determine the best solution to fix basement water issues.
We check the drainage system in your home, we conduct a sewer line inspection, and we assess the gutters and roof run offs and monitor the water systems around the home to reach an accurate diagnosis.
Sump pump installations often entail breaking through concrete.
Before we break ground however, we take into consideration what materials, systems, or contraptions may be below the concrete. The last thing we want to do is increase the risk of damage. For example, in older houses, the main water line may be on the ground and breaking concrete can affect that water line causing flooding.
Once it is clear to break ground, we start the installation process by creating a drain to the sump pump and a liner for a sump pit. The Sump Pump unit itself is then placed inside the liner, keeping off dust and debris. After the unit is installed, we test the sump and drainage line to ensure that it is working sufficiently before we cover the drain using concrete.
Sump pump installations can be complex, but we follow a strict professional guide to make certain your basement or protected and your water systems are functioning optimally.
