Water Management Made Easy: Trusted Sump Pumps in Troy, MI

S&J Plumbing has got you covered

Residents of Troy and throughout Michigan will experience, on average, up to 38” of rainfall per year. When water levels get too high, whether due to severe storms or flooding, your home’s sump pump works to keep them out of the basement.

Your sump pump sits in a basin beneath your basement floor. When it detects rising water levels, the sump pump switches on and moves this water away from the house using what’s known as an effluent. Though there are different types of sump pumps, including pedestal, submersible, and those powered by both water and batteries, they all serve the same purpose. So if it stops working due to a clogged intake screen or switch failure, you need to call a company that is knowledgeable on your particular sump pump system. You need to call S&J Plumbing.

The team at S&J Plumbing has years of experience working with sump pumps. If you need quality repair services, turn to the best in the business: 586-758-6237.

Even though sump pumps are a vital part of combatting flooding inside your home, the reality is that not every house or commercial property has one installed – and sometimes that’s okay!

Since a sump pump is designed to push out water so it doesn’t affect your foundation, homes that don’t have a basement and instead were simply built on top of a concrete slab, usually don’t have – or need sump pumps. Furthermore, homes or commercial properties that experience little to no rain aren’t prime candidates for sump pumps either.

Rather, sump pumps are ideal if your building is located in an area that receives a lot of rainfall and flooding. So if you live near a lake, river, or ocean, you’ll want to make sure you have a sump pump that’s working correctly. On average, if kept in good shape, your sump pump should last you upward of 10 years. To learn more about these devices, including whether or not you need a sump pump for basement, give our team a call. We can be reached at 586-758-6237.

Safeguarding Against Flooding: Premier Sump Pump Installation in Troy, MI

S&J Plumbing can help

If you decide that you need basement sump pump installation, you can expect the process to take about seven hours. However, keep in mind that this time frame could vary depending on the thickness of your basement floor.

There are many steps involved in installing a sub pump. The first is to disconnect all the power to the residential or commercial property to ensure safety. Once this is done, your tech will measure the size of the basin, attach a valve to the discharge pipe, glue an adapter to the PVC pipe and cut it, drill a hole, and drop the sump pump into the pit. Once the pump is in the basin, they will connect it to the discharge pipe and then test everything to ensure it’s working correctly.

While there are some do-it-yourself guides online, the bottom line is that you should always hire a professional sump pump installation Troy MI to handle this job for you. There are many reasons for this, however, the big one is that sump pumps need to be installed based on the manufacturer’s recommendations, so they can operate safely and correctly. The techs at S&J Plumbing have been working with these brands for years, so we know what to expect. Contact us at 586-758-6237 to set up an appointment.

Another thing you should do before your appointment is clear your basement out so the techs can work freely. Once you call and set up this appointment, start moving things out so there aren’t any delays in the installation process.
