    Drain Pro Sump Pump Installation & Repairs

    If the area beneath your house floods from time to time or feels damp and musty, there’s a big likelihood you have a moisture problem. A sump pump, in addition to our waterproofing measures, would make your basement a healthier environment and protect any belongings or appliances you put below.

    The sump pump activates when the water level reaches a predetermined capacity, pushing the surplus water to a storm drain or other means of evacuation. During storms, these devices evacuate water from beneath the house, preventing overflows that might cause flooding and other damage.

    When a sump pump fails, it may cause a lot of water damage and stress for homeowners. If you suspect a problem with your sump pump, seek assistance right away. The harm to your property is not worth the wait.

    Our installation process involves finding the lowest point in the floor, placing the sump pump in a specially dug hole and securing it in place.

    Leave Your Sump Pump Needs To Professionals

    Most sump pumps come with water level or flood alarms, which are usually battery-powered and inform you if the pump fails and water backs up. Overall, sump pumps are extremely dependable. However, as with any other critical piece of machinery, proper maintenance is always a good idea and should be done when large rainfall is predicted, every couple of months, particularly in early spring, to guarantee reliable sump pump functioning.

    Sump pumps for Victoria homes are electrically powered and run-on regular household current, so they don’t require any extra wiring other than a grounded outlet. However, because the pump is always in or near water, safety standards must be followed when installing or repairing.

    Drain Pro has a team of experts who specialise Sump Pump installation, maintenance, and repair. Our staff gives cost-effective solutions to your difficulties using innovative methods.

    If you think you might need a new sump pump or repair an old one, contact us immediately before the problem worsens and puts your house at risk.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is a sump pump?2021-10-18T17:43:14+00:00

    A sump pump is a submersible pump that is found at the lowest point in a property. This pump helps to protect a house from water damage caused by intense rainfalls, storms, and rising waters. The pump is inside a sump pit and can detect when water begins to rise. When the water starts to build, the sump pump will pump the water out of the building and away from your property.

    What are the benefits of getting a sump pump?2021-10-18T17:43:02+00:00

    A sump pump helps to protect your house from flooding, mold, and electrical fires. When there is heavy rainfall, basements can fill with water fast. High levels of water in a contained area such as a basement can lead to damage to all belongings and the structure of your home. Built-up water in a basement is likely to grow mold. Mold grows fast and can have a severe impact on not only your house but your personal health. Water damage to electrical appliances can cause short-circuits which lead to electrical fires.

    Do I need a sump pump?2022-05-03T13:41:02+00:00

    If any portion of your home is located underground, it is imperative that you purchase a sump pump. This will keep your home free of water damage to the basement and core structure of the building. Sump pumps provide you with peace of mind so you don’t need to worry about unexpected water damage to your family’s home. Contact us today to get started!

    How deep should my sump pit/basin be?2022-05-03T13:48:57+00:00

    A standard sump pump basin is between 18 and 25 gallons. We always say the bigger the better when it comes to your sump pump basin, this will allow the pump to run less frequently, thus increasing its lifespan. We are proud to assist with all of your sump pump needs, no matter what. Contact us today.

    Will my pump work if the power is out?2022-05-03T13:48:30+00:00

    No. Unfortunately, sump pumps require electricity to function. We recommend looking into purchasing a dedicated sump pump backup power supply if you live in a home that frequently loses power. Contact us today to have all of your sump pump needs taken care of quickly and professionally.

    Can I use a sump pump with an extension cord?2022-05-03T13:48:10+00:00

    It is highly recommended that you NEVER use a sump pump with an extension cord. It is important to have your pump plugged into a dedicated outlet with a circuit breaker to ensure your pump is receiving the proper voltage. If you do not have an outlet near your outlet, please have one professionally installed by an electrician. If you are ready to have your sump pump professionally installed, contact us today!
