If your Lynnwood property lies in an area with high water tables, frequent rainstorms, or low elevation, you may want to ensure you have a properly functioning sump pump at all times. Whether you have one that could use attention or need a replacement, Trident Plumbing is here to help with all your sump pump issues.
Why Have a Sump Pump?
Sump pumps work to reroute water to move away from the lowest point of your foundation, helping to protect your crawlspace or basement from flooding. This equipment is essential during heavy rainstorms as it can help reduce flooding or issues when you have overflowing water due to a plumbing emergency.
Should your sump pump stop working, you must identify the cause immediately to avoid significant damage to your home. You can always trust our Trident Plumbing and Drain Cleaning team whenever you require sump pump repair or replacement.
Common Types of Sump Pumps
There are two main types of sump pumps:
- Pedestal pumps that are mounted over your sump pit. They offer convenient access to service and perform periodic testing.
- Submersible pumps that sit inside your well or sump pit out of sight. These units are less visually intrusive but may be more difficult to service and test.
Often, a sump pump gets hardwired into the electrical system, or you can plug it into your wall outlet. However, because such systems can fail during a storm due to a power failure, many sump pumps will be equipped with battery-powered backups.
When you need a new sump pump, professional installation is best to ensure it runs properly. Many DIY projects can lead to system damage or improper drainage. Let Trident Plumbing and Drain Cleaning handle all your repair, replacement, or new installation needs.
