Sump Pump Installation

A sump pump prevents your basement from flooding during times of heavy rain. Many of us live in an area prone to flooding. That said, you'll want to invest in a highly reliable basement sump pump system. Polaris Plumbing Solutions can inspect your basement to see if you need a sump pump. Otherwise, you could end up with a flooded basement after the spring rains. A basement flooding is most common once the snow melts.

  • Where is the sump pump installed?The sump pump will be installed in your basement or crawlspace at the lowest point. Since water takes paths of least resistance, it flows down to the lowest place in your home. Luckily, a sump pump will prevent water from seeping into your basement.
  • How does a sump pump work?Water that pools around your home's foundation eventually trickles into your footer drain tiles that run into a sump pump crock. From there, the water fills the crock which will activate the sump pump switch. The water is then pumped into the discharge pipes and away from your house. We highly recommend homeowners invest in a highly reliable sump pump system to keep their basements dry, despite the heavy rains and snow melting.
  • Do I need a sump pump backup?A basement sump pump relies on power to operate. If you have a power outage, or the sump pump is unplugged, it won't be able to pump water out of your basement. For this reason, we recommend installing a sump pump backup system so your basement will stay dry. Polaris Plumbing Solutions will be able to provide you a quote for sump pump backup system installation. A battery backup system is powered by batteries so it will continue to operate even during a power outage.
  • How can I make sure the sump pump works?Once the snow begins to melt, it's a good idea to have your basement sump pump system checked to make sure it's working properly. We highly recommend you take advantage of our sump pump maintenance service so you can have peace of mind when the spring rains arrive and the snow melts.
