Residential Sump Pump in Cambridge
When your Cambridge home has a basement that continues to get flooded and collects moisture, what are you supposed to do? Let it sit there? Doing so would create a ton of problems, namely the hazardous damage it would do to your home. Do you bail it out with a bucket? This might work for a while but the strain this type of labor can put on your body simply might not be worth it.
Luckily, there’s a much simpler solution to getting rid of the water that’s threatening your home: a sump pump. A sump pump keeps your home dry by automatically pumping and diverting water away from your home’s foundation.
Of course, the only way a sump pump can prevent expensive damage to your home and everything in it is if it has been correctly installed by a reliable professional. When you need to find those reliable professionals who can set your home up with a working sump pump, you need not look any further than DSL Mechanical.
At DSL Mechanical, we pride ourselves on providing Cambridge homeowners with the most reliable residential plumbing services, including sump pump installations, repairs, maintenance and replacements. Drop us a line whenever you have had enough of water flooding your basement and crawl spaces.
Sump Pump Repairs
A sump pump is the homeowner’s first line of defense against a flooded basement, no matter what its cause. But when a sump pump fails, it can make a problem worse or even cause flooding. That’s why you need to be able to have a plumber you trust that will be there in times of need. DSL Mechanical is made up of those plumbers and we can fix any issue plaguing your sump pump including:
Overwhelmed Sump Pump
Sometimes a sump pump can get overwhelmed by the volume of water it needs to dispose of. If your sump pump fails you in times of heavy rain, we can upgrade your system so that it can handle heavier loads.
No Water Collecting
Whenever your sump pump isn’t collecting water, it’s a sign that it hasn’t been correctly installed and not linked to a drainage system. We can inspect the system and fix the problem, including installing a drainage system if need be.
If your sump pump doesn’t have a lid, it will get clogged and dirty over time. Eventually, it will slow down or stop entirely. We can replace your sump pump for one that has a lid to keep debris out in the future or clean the drainage pipes to get rid of any obstructions constricting the water’s flow.
If a storm knocks down power lines or your circuit breakers keep getting tripped by the pump, we can easily install a backup power source that’s battery operated so that your home is protected even in the event of power outages.
When a sump pump runs continuously, even when there is no water to get rid of, this problem needs to be addressed immediately because it could burn out. There could be a number of reasons why this is happening, which is why it’s so important for a technician familiar with your system to take a look.
Whatever your sump pump or your home’s plumbing needs, just contact DSL Mechanical and we’ll be there to help you with the same courteous service we’re known for.
