Sump Pumps

Sump PumpsĀ in Cedar Grove, NJ

New Jersey can experience major thunderstorms during the rainy part of the year. Although thunderstorms add a natural beauty to a dour rainfall, there’s a downside to such displays: flash floods and heavy rains can damage your property, and because they often arrive quickly, you don’t usually have much time to address the problem on the fly.

The solution is a sump pump installed at the lowest part of your home by the professionals at MarGo Plumbing Heating Cooling Inc.. When properly installed and regularly maintained, a sump pump can make an excellent line of defense against flooding in your home. Not only can we install a sump pump the right way, but we’ll keep it maintained and repaired so that it’s ready to go when you need it, and we’ll replace it with a new one when it finally gets too old to function effectively. It all starts with a phone call to the best plumbing service in Cedar Grove, NJ and throughout Essex, Bergen, and Morris Counties.

How Do Sump Pumps Work?

Sump pumps are placed in a trench or hole dug specifically for it, which is the part of the system known as the sump. Other types of sump pumps are placed above the sump. As water leaks or flood into your property, it fills this sump. A sensor on a floater detects the water and activates the pump. Centrifugal force first pulls the water into the system, and then pushes it up through the venting pipe. The water is automatically vented out of the system, and deposited safely outside your home. Your home is spared a great deal of damage in the process.

How Are Sump Pumps Installed?

A sump pump needs to be placed in the basement of your home, or at lowest point in the crawlspace if you don’t have a basement. That’s where the floodwaters will gather when the rains fall, and the spot where the sump pump can do the most good. A technician will need to connect it to a power source and set up a venting pipe to remove the excess water from your home as the pump works. Finally, you’ll need to determine the required power level for your sump pump, ensuring that it can handle any workload no matter how heavily the rains fall.
