Sump Pump Installation in Teaneck, NJ
Before installation, you should determine what type of sump pump you’d like installed in your home. The first step is to have one of our technicians visit your home and inspect the site of the water infiltrating your property. We will work with you to determine where it is coming from and what parts of your home it is affecting most. Most of the time, the problem is related to the water grade beneath your foundation or against a basement wall.
In either case, a sump pump can help immensely in removing the water before it comes into your home. We will dig a pit in which water can gather when it starts to build up during a rain storm or a thaw after a snow storm. French drains may also be added to channel water toward the pit where the pump will be installed. A sump pump can be installed either in the pit where it will trigger when the water starts to fill up or outside the pit on a pedestal, where it will trigger when a float in the pit starts to rise.
It then activates and starts removing water from the pit, quickly lowering the water as it flows into your property and ensuring you don’t have a flood on your hands.
Sump Pump Repair and Maintenance
If you have an existing sump pump, it is highly recommended that you have annual maintenance service performed. During a maintenance visit our technicians will remove any buildup of sediment or mud from the pit, and lubricate moving parts so that the entire system runs smoothly when necessary.
If a problem does develop, we can inspect the system carefully to determine if there are any adjustments that can be made or if replacement is necessary.
