Sump Pumps in Staten Island, NY
Trouble with flooding in basements and crawlspaces are common in New York. When stormy weather blows through, it can mean water rushing down into the lowest parts of a house. But it isn’t only storm water that creates flooding. Plumbing disasters like burst pipes can also cause flooding. No home can be 100% safe from flooding. But homes can also have a defense against flooding: the sump pump. This pump automatically removes excess water from the lowest part of a home and putting it into the waste water system.

Choosing a Sump Pump Installation
When you’re looking for a sump pump, you’ll have a couple of choices to make. A professional plumber will help you make the best choice and handle the job of installing the pump and excavating the sump (the pit in the basement or crawlspace where water collects for removal). There are two basic sump pump models:
- Pedestal Sump Pump: This pump sits above the sump and draws the water collected in the sump up through a pipe and then sends it through another pipe into the wastewater system. Pedestal pumps are easy to maintain and repair and have long service lives.
- Submersible Sump Pump: This pump actually is placed down in the sump, where it draws water directly into it through intakes and then pumps it out through a pipe that leaves the sump. These pumps wear down faster than pedestal models, but they are more energy efficient and often more effective.
Sump Pump Maintenance and Sump Pump Repair
Regardless of what model of sump pump your home uses, it must have regular maintenance to clean and inspect it. We recommend pouring water into the sump before the start of the storm season to make sure the pump automatically turns on. If it doesn’t, contact us for sump pump repair (or possibly a sump pump replacement). You don’t want to be caught in a situation where you finally need your sump pump, only to have it fail on you! You can also arrange with our plumbers for regular maintenance for your sump pump along with other plumbing maintenance services.
