Five Star Keeps Your Home Dry with Benjamin Franklin Plumbing Sump Pump Repair, Maintenance & Installation
Out of sight, out of mind, sump pumps protect your home during plumbing emergencies and severe weather. Typically installed at a home’s lowest point, sump pumps prevent water levels from rising to cause damage.
Our trained Benjamin Franklin Plumbers handle both submersible and pedestal sump pumps. They bring years of experience to ensure your sump pump is giving you the best protection from flooding.
How Do Sump Pumps Work?
Sump pumps belong where your home is most likely to collect water first: its lowest point. They are activated when a device, known as a float switch, rises due to elevated water levels.
Once activated, the pump’s hose transports water to a safe location. Since many sump pumps typically work most during lousy weather, they should have a sump pump battery backup allowing them to run during power outages.
There are two types of sump pumps:
Submersible Pumps: As their name implies, these work in or under the water they are pumping.
Pedestal Pumps:– These are kept above the water on a stand, making them easier to reach, maintain, and repair.
Like any machine, a sump pump is subject to necessary repairs, maintenance, and installation. Is yours ready for an emergency? Contact Five Star. We’ll send a Benjamin Franklin Plumber to prepare your pump for any emergency.
