Sump Pump Repair

But if you schedule an annual sump pump inspection with Irish Plumber®, we’ll make sure the alarm is working (if applicable), inspect the check valve, install a backup power source (if you don’t have one already), inspect the dimensions of the pit to make sure it’s adequate for the pump to work properly, and check to make sure the discharge location is far enough from your home and neighboring properties.

Sump Pump Installation
How do you protect your basement from flooding?
Install a sump pump. New sump pumps can help prevent thousands of dollars of damage to your basement and foundation. As water flows from heavy rains into the sump pits, the sump pump will pump the water out and away from the building. Even if you’re not experiencing torrential downpours or heavy snowfall/snowmelt, a sump pump is still useful in taking moisture away from the basement and crawlspace. Even a little bit of moisture can lead to mold and mildew growth.
How do you ensure your sump pump works when the power is out?
Install a sump pump battery back-up system. Just having a sump pump isn’t enough when the power goes out. Our solutions provide base coverage with a simple sump pump battery back-up system or more protection with our premium solutions that have dual sump pumps, dual float switches, and twice the battery capacity. With either solution you can rest assured knowing that your home will be protected during a storm.
To help you in your new sump pump decision-making process, here are a few things to consider.
Things to Consider When Buying a New Sump Pump:
- Submersible or pedestal
- Cast iron, plastic, or steel construction
- Types of float switch
- Location - basement or crawlspace
- Importance of filtration
- Backup power source
- Secondary sump pump
