How We Can Help Your Sump Pump

flooded-drivewayCalifornia isn’t usually known for having heavy rainfall. However, as locals like us know, when the rain comes, it can really come down. Now, this is great for tackling drought and fire risk, but it isn’t great for the overly dry land that can become overwhelmed easily with a sudden influx of rainwater. Heavy rain and dry land add up to mean, you guessed it, an increased risk of flooding.

While some cities have been featured on the news when floods turn their roads into rivers, hopefully, the flooding that you have to deal with will instead be the type that can be handled with the help of a sump pump. If you have a system like this, you will need a Pomona plumber to keep it running effectively. That is where we can help.

3 Ways That We Can Help Out With Your Sump Pump

California does see its fair share of flooding when rainy seasons come along. That is why having a sump pump can be a huge help in protecting your home. These systems are made to help pump floodwaters out of and away from your home, reducing the risk of water damage. What’s more, they can be helpful even when the issue isn’t rainwater but is instead a flood of water from a busted water main or another source.

Keeping your sump pump in good working order throughout the year is important. And that is why we offer helpful services to keep your system in peak condition such as:

  • Maintenance: Much like the other vital systems in your home (i.e. your air conditioner and your heater), a sump pump needs some extra love and care each year to ensure it is ready to jump into action when needed. That TLC can come in the form of cleaning the system, making sure the pipes are clear and checking for any small issues to address. When a professional takes on this task, they will make sure your sump pump is ready to operate effectively and efficiently when needed.
  • Repairs: Even if your sump pump only kicks on every couple of years, there is always a chance that time or wear and tear will take their toll to create a repair need. When this happens, you can reach out to our team of professionals to help get your sump pump back in working order.
  • Replacement: Even a sump pump has a lifespan that will eventually run out. When your sump pump simply can’t do its job anymore, or it needs repairs that cost more than it is worth to your home, it means that a replacement is the best option. Schedule a replacement with our team to ensure the job is done in a timely and effective manner.

We know a sump pump plays a big role in protecting your home in times of need. Let us be a part of the team that works to keep your home safe, comfortable, ad dry.
