So, you think you need a Sump Pump Cincinnati?
Let’s face it, many of the homes here in Northern Kentucky & Greater Cincinnati are older construction and have basements prone to leaks. Installing a sump pump will solve most basement flooding and leaking issues. As full service residential plumbing experts, Plumb Tite can install a sump pump system in your basement that will direct the water from around and beneath the basement foundation into a sump pit at the lowest point. The electric powered sump pump will discharge the water out of the pit and into the city storm drain or wherever your local code requires.
Replacement Sump Pump
Like any equipment with moving parts, sump pumps will wear out over time and will need to be replaced. There is no general rule on how often a sump pump should be replaced since it depends on how often the pump operates.
It is important to test your sump pump regularly to make sure it will operate when the next big storm occurs. Test it by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump should turn on, remove the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. If this does not happen you will want to have a trained professional look at the situation to see if your pump needs to be replaced.
Consider a Backup
If your home experiences a power outage for an extended period or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump will protect your basement from flooding. We recommend a battery back up sump pump to prevent any flooding in your home. Ask one of our highly trained technicians about your sump pump options.
