Best Cincinnati Sump Pump Repair and Installation

Sump Pumps and Battery Backup Sump Pumps for the Greater Cincinnati Area

According to the American Society of Home Inspectors, more than 60% of American homes suffer from below-ground wetness. Many of us are likely to experience a flooded basement or crawl space at some time, and it doesn’t take much water to cause thousands of dollars in damage to the structure of your home and your belongings. Sadly, many things in homes have sentimental value and are unable to be replaced or repaired.

A sump pump keeps your basement or crawl space dry by automatically pumping and channeling water away from the foundation when the ground is saturated with water. If the sump pump fails, your basement can flood, causing expensive damage to your home, furnishing, and keepsakes that can’t be replaced like family photos. It’s important to have a reliable sump pump that can help protect your home when the weather is at its rainiest.

A sump pump is installed in your basement or crawlspace and is designed to help keep the area dry and free of flooding. Sump pumps are installed in sump pits, and they pump water out of the pit and away from your home, keeping your basement and crawl space dry. The water is absorbed into the ground away from your home.

Water damage is an expensive threat to your home, especially when it is raining heavily. A reliable sump pump can prevent flooded basements and crawl spaces which not only protects your home’s structure and contents but helps you avoid problems with mold and mildew that thrive in damp areas.

We get a lot of rain and snow in Cincinnati, so if you don’t have a sump pump, call Thomas & Galbraith Heating, Cooling & Plumbing Plumbing, Heating & Cooling and one of our experienced, licensed plumbers can install the correct sump pump for your home.

Battery Backup Sump Pumps

A sump pump is a great solution to protect our homes from flooding, but what happens WHEN:

  • the power goes out?
  • the primary pump fails?
  • the float switch on your sump pump gets stuck?

Sadly, the answer is that your sump pump won’t work, and your basement or crawl space may flood. To prevent this unfortunate situation, you could install 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; so having a backup pump covers you when Murphy’s Law strikes. If your primary pump doesn’t turn on for any reason, the battery backup will kick in.

The battery backup pump is a redundant system that operates independently when the primary pump fails and is installed next to your primary unit. You can rest easy when you lose power to your home, knowing that the battery power will still operate your sump pump. Also, if the primary pump is unable to keep up with the amount of water pouring into the pit, the battery backup pump will kick in to assist.

You will be protecting your property and valuable belongings, save yourself the unpleasant experience of hours of cleanup time, the expense of professional restoration services, and the replacement of property and equipment that were damaged when you install a battery backup sump pump.

Unfortunately, not being proactive with sump pump repairs can cost thousands of dollars if yours fails and leads to a flooded basement. Sump pumps can be overlooked, but these systems are a vital component of your home’s plumbing system. They are designed to keep your basement, crawl space, or any other low-lying area dry. If your sump pump is acting up and providing you with less than ideal service, it’s probably time to call a professional. Scheduling sump pump maintenance or repairs before it fails is always better than coming home to a flooded basement!
