Protect Your Home And Get Peace Of Mind

A flooded basement is a homeowners worse nightmare.  Whether the flooded basement comes from a broken pipe or torrential rains, these nightmares can be prevented with a sump pump.  Sump Pumps protect your house from rising waters that can produce an incredible amount of damage to your belongings and property.  Top Notch Plumbing installs, maintains and repairs sump pumps in Easton PA and surrounding areas of the Lehigh Valley and Poconos.

What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is designed to transport water from the basement of your home to the exterior. In your basement, there is a naturally created pit, commonly referred to as a sump basin, which is excavated below the main surface. This basin serves as the container for the sump pump and water in your basment is directed at this pit. Equipped with valves that can detect rising water levels or pressure, the sump pump activates when the water reaches a certain height. Its function is to automatically remove excess water from the basement, redirecting it away from your property through a discharge line. This line, known as an effluent, connects the sump pump to a designated drainage area.

How Does A Sump Pump Work?

For the majority of the time, the sump pump just sits there, inactive.  However, when water levels rise due to seepage from heavy rains or broken pipes, the sump pump detects the rising water through a float switch and kicks on.  Powered by electricity, the sump pump ejects water to the exterior of your home to a designated drainage area, saving your basement from flood damage.

There are different types of sump pumps with different options like battery back-up, smart sensors and more.  The two most popular sump pumps we instal are Submersible Sump Pumps and Pedestal Sump Pumps.  See below FAQ for differences between the two.

Submersible pumps integrate both the pump and motor into a single unit. They are placed inside a basin in your basement, completely submerged and sealed. Submersible pumps offer several advantages: they tend to operate quietly, occupy less space in your basement, and are less prone to clogging compared to pedestal pumps. However, their lifespan may be shorter due to prolonged exposure to water. Despite this, they remain the optimal choice for homes facing significant flooding issues.

In contrast to a submersible sump pump, a pedestal sump pump is comprised of distinct motor and pump components. The motor is positioned on a pedestal above the basin, while a hose connects it to the pump placed inside the basin. The pump functions by propelling water through the hose and directing it to the designated drainage area. As the motor is not submerged, it typically has a longer lifespan compared to other types of sump pumps and is more easily accessible for maintenance purposes. However, this design characteristic also means that it can generate more noise and occupy more space compared to submersible pumps.

Using a battery backup sump pump is an excellent method to enhance protection against flood damage. By employing a float switch in conjunction with a battery backup system, your sump pump can continue functioning even during power outages, precisely when it is most crucial. When the power supply is interrupted, the primary power source for the pump is also affected. Consequently, water levels rise within the basin, activating the float switch and prompting the battery-operated backup system to take over.

For Homes that are prone to flooding, a battery backup sump pump cna give you peace of mind in case of power outages due to heavy storms.

When your basement is backed up, it is highly likely that there is a clog in your sewer line. Several factors can contribute to this, including tree roots intruding into the line, grease accumulation, or the presence of a foreign object. Dealing with a backed-up basement is not only inconvenient but can also lead to potential damage to your home if left unattended.

If you find yourself facing this issue, it is crucial to contact a professional plumber without delay.

Our experienced team will swiftly work to restore your basement to its normal state and ensure optimal functioning of your sewer line.
