Sump Pumps

During the heavy rains, water is unable to drain effectively from around or under buildings and assistance is required with the installation of sump pumps. Depending upon how many pumps you need and where they are to be installed, you will require power to operate. Pumps can be installed with temporary usage of extension cords that will require final installation with a new receptacle at each location. During the summer months, these pumps usually are not in operation unless there is a constant flow of water being produced. The pumps that are not in use should be tested to make sure they are in operation for the following season. You can fill the chambers with water to test and cycle these pumps. This testing will also make sure that gaskets won’t dry out and crack that might cause internal damage to the pumps. Contact a licensed electrical contractor for proper installation of the permanent receptacle.
