Unfortunately, sump pumps are often neglected and forgotten about until they fail to do their job. Maintenance on these pumps should become routine. BMW Plumbing can check your sump pump, ejector pump and battery back-up pump for you any time. We will ensure the pumps are working properly by checking such things as the pump operation, pit condition, pump discharge piping, wiring, battery terminals and fuses. Our goal is to protect your basement from flooding while giving you peace of mind. Click here for our preventative sump pump maintenance specials.
Sump pump failures can be very expensive. Water in your basement can add up to thousands of dollars of damage. There are many things in your basement that can be vulnerable to damage if the sump pump fails. Carpet, furnace, water heater, you get the idea. All of these can add up very quickly when it comes to repair or replacement.
Sump pumps run on electricity. During heavy storms, power outages are common. If this happens, your sump pump is useless and water will end up in your basement. Consider installing a battery back-up pump. BMW Plumbing can come out to your home and assess your situation then recommend the proper back-up system for your home. A battery back-up pump is a second pump that will “take over” the pumping responsibility should your primary sump pump fail due to power outages or even mechanical failure.
