Prevent flooding in your home with sump pumps in Edmonton. These devices prevent water from accumulating by removing water buildup from a sump pit, which is the lowest point in a home. The water is then moved through a discharge line out of your home. If you’re looking to install a sump pump in your Edmonton home, or have repairs done to your current sump pump, call the experts at Fast Service Plumbing & Gas Fitting. We install, repair, and service sump pumps in Edmonton and the surrounding areas.
What Is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is in fact a pump. It protects your home from flooding by removing water from around your home’s foundation. A sump pump is generally installed into a hole (the sump pit) in your basement or crawl space. It discharges water through a line that leads to your yard or a storm sewer. The water a sump pump removes is groundwater that builds up in storms. When the water reaches a level that is determined by a sump pump float, the device will turn on and discharge excess water to prevent flooding.
Sump Pump Installation
Installing a sump pump in your basement or crawl space requires minor excavation and construction services. In order to place a sump pump, the experts at Fast Service Plumbing & Gas Fitting will dig a trench around the interior perimeter of your home by removing a small section of the floor and digging below that. Stones will be laid in the trench and a sump pump drain is put on top.
Once our contractors have installed the sump pump pit, they will install the rest of the system. There are several types of sump pumps, but in general the parts include:
Each part serves a specific function. For example, the discharge line leads the water outside of your home, and the weeping tile collects the water that will be removed. Your new sump pump system from Fast Service Plumbing & Gas Fitting will include a durable liner and powerful electrical supply to keep the system working even in the worst weather.
