Best Cincinnati Sump Pump Repair and Installation

Heavy rains can result in extensive damage to your home. A reliable sump pump can help protect your home’s structure and contents by preventing flooded basements and crawl spaces as well as help you avoid problems with mold and mildew that thrive in damp areas.

A sump pump is installed in a sump pit in your basement or crawlspace and is designed to help keep the area dry and free of flooding by pumping water out of the pit and away from your home. The water is absorbed into the ground away from your home.

According to the American Society of Home Inspectors, more than 60% of American homes suffer from below-ground wetness. It doesn’t take much water to cause damage to your home that may require expensive repairs or replacements. But, unfortunately, sentimental belongings that cannot be replaced can also be damaged.

With the rain and snow that we get in Cincinnati, you really need a reliable sump pump. Call Thomas & Galbraith Heating, Cooling & Plumbing and one of our experienced, licensed plumbers can recommend and install the correct sump pump for your home.

Why Get a Battery Backup Sump Pump in Cincinnati?

You may have a sump pump that protects your home from flooding, but have you considered what happens WHEN:

  • you lose power?
  • the primary pump fails?
  • the sump pump’s float switch gets stuck?

Answer: Your sump pump won’t work, and your basement or crawl space is no longer protected from flooding. So a wise decision is to choose a battery backup sump pump. Sump pumps can fail for all kinds of reasons: lack of professional maintenance, loss of power, age, manufacturer defect, component failure; and that’s when you’ll be thankful that you have a backup pump. When your primary pump doesn’t turn on, the battery backup pump will.

The battery backup pump operates independently of the primary pump and is installed next to the primary unit. Since it is battery powered, you don’t need to be concerned about power outages. Also, if the primary pump can’t keep up with the water that is pouring into the pit, the battery backup pump will kick in to assist.

Sump Pump Inspection by a Licensed Thomas & Galbraith Plumber

Sump pumps should be professionally serviced each year by a licensed plumber to ensure that you have reliable protection for your home.  A failure is less likely to occur when the operation of the pumps is checked, the pit is cleared of debris, and the battery charge is checked.

Thomas & Galbraith plumbers are experienced, trained plumbing experts ready to install or maintain your sump pump.

What Can You Avoid?

The installation of a battery backup sump pump will help protect your home and valuable belongings as well as save you the unpleasant experience of hours of cleanup time, the expense of professional restoration services, and the replacement of damaged property and equipment.

Called the provider not expected anyone to answer and someone did at 3:30 am. She sent a technician out (who came out on bad roads) and he arrived cheerful and competent. Did a really good job.
