Diagnosing the Need for Sump Pump Repair

The best sump pump repair is the one that doesn’t involve a plumbing emergency. Too many of our clients call us amid a plumbing emergency when their sump pump suddenly stops working. That can occur more frequently after heavy bouts of rain or when plumbing systems simply break down.

We partner with property owners to conduct regular sump pump repair and maintenance to avoid these types of emergencies. No, question, we’ll be there when emergencies happen, but we prefer saving you time and money by doing the work before something bad happens. Sump pumps are usually low-maintenance plumbing devices. However, you need to check on them regularly because they’re very important to the running of your plumbing system. You need to have the confidence they’ll kick in when water levels get high enough to threaten your home or business.

You should call Mackin & Sons Plumbing for sump pump repair if notice any of the following:

  • Strange smells coming from your sump pump
  • Loud strange noises
  • Any noticeable malfunction

Sump Pump Installation

While a sump pump installation or replacement may look fairly simple, doing the job properly involves many steps and a lot of experience. Some of the most common sump pump failures are a result of how they were originally installed. Our expert plumbers look at various factors and make any necessary corrections, such as:

  • Cleaning the bottom of the pit to avoid excessive mud or debris from clogging the intake
  • Making sure the switch turn-on height is correct
  • Adjusting pump location to reduce stress on piping
  • Re-sealing lids on pits with radon systems

Benefits of Sump Pump Services

Drive Up the Property Values

Your home is a major investment and to get the most out of this investment, you need home improvements. Sump Pump Services increase the value of the home because the plumbing products lower flood risks.

As long as the sump pump operates as expected, rainwater flows through the top of the fixture into a basin, and then the water flows through a drainage pipe away from the home or into a storm drain. The added value comes from heightened protection of the entire property.

Control Mold and Mildew Growth

Your home needs fixtures that mitigate risks that cause property damage and depreciation of value. Basement and foundation flooding don’t just cause property damage. They create a breeding ground for mold and mildew that spread through homes like wildfires.

Once mold and mildew set in, the results might cause hundreds of dollars in mold cleanup, remediation, and restoration costs. A sump pump is the easiest way to protect against flooding and increase property values, and Plumbing Services afford families with this advantageous plumbing fixture.

Protect the Foundation and Stop Flooding

Sump pump services are available to maintain the pump and keep it operational. The most common issues with sump pumps are clogs, power outages, and unpleasant smells. In Ohio, frozen discharge lines become an issue if the water lines and plumbing aren’t winterized. Maintenance and quick repair services address clogs in discharge pipes and inadequate drainage, and the owner has a power switch to shut down the sump pump as needed.

Keep the Framing and Structural Support Dry

Water leaks and floods around a home lead to a compromise of the integrity of the structural support and framing holding the home together. Dampness and flooding lead to moisture and water entering spaces behind exterior walls and causing wood rot.

Drying practices are used after flooding, but the services cannot guarantee that there isn’t any structural property damage. A sump pump is the best way to keep water away from the framing and support beams inside the walls and underneath the home.
