vernon ct plumber emergency plumbing tip sump pumpWhere is my sump pump?

It's usually located in the lowest point of your home, such as the basin. It's called a sump pump because it sits in a basin, otherwise known as a "sump." Extra water collects in the basin. When the water reaches a certain point, the pump senses it and turns on. It will pump any extra water out of your Vernon CT home to a dry well or storm drain. It's a pretty low-maintenance, "set it and forget it" piece of equipment. You should have it serviced once a year. Usually, the only time you know that it failed is when you step into your new "pool" in the basement. An annual check-up by a local Vernon CT plumber will provide you peace of mind and protect the life of your investment.

Sump pump test

Just because it was working fine last year doesn’t mean it’s ready for this year’s rainy season. Dirt, gravel, and sand will shorten the life of the pump. Even only an inch or two of water in your basement can cause thousands of dollars in damage. There's also the inconvenience of cleaning and restoring your basement to its original condition. With the amount of rain we get this time of year, your sump pump has to work hard to protect your home. Here's an easy way to test the equipment: WATCH VIDEO.

    I had Rapid Service come to my home because there was a saddle valve under my kitchen sink that was about to make a huge mess. I wasn't able to use my filtered water faucet until the repair was made. The technician fixed it AND had a great attitude while he worked. That is a rare thing lately...
