Sump pumps are typically found in the basements of homes in flooding areas and are used to quickly rid your home of unwanted water where it could do damage to your home and belongings.  Water, when it floods your home, puts not only your home at risk for damages, but also can cause injuries and dangerous situations for your family and pets.  When your sump pump is broken or ineffectively working, you should call Mr. Rooter in Noblesville right away, before water enters your home.  Your sump pump should be installed where flooding usually enters your home, which is usually at the lowest part of the basement.  The sump pump in your home should work to quickly send the water into the storm drain or into a dry well, anywhere it can be deposited safely without cause for concern.  In the past, and can still be the case in some older homes, sump pumps were designed to pump the water into the public sewer system.  This practice is currently a violation of plumbing codes and should no longer be done.  Pay attention to where your sump pump deposits your water and if you are concerned, Mr. Rooter’s plumbers can repair your pump to send the water where it should.

When you need a new sump pump, the technicians at Mr. Rooter of Noblesville will help you to choose which one will be the best for your needs.  The first choice you have to make is whether you would like a pedestal or submersible model.  Most homeowners and plumbers opt for the submersible model, as they are easier to install, smaller and require less frequent maintenance.  Mr. Rooter will explain all of the differences between the two models and recommend which one will be the best for you and your home.  The next choice you will make is what size pump you need as well as how high your sump pump should pump.  The size of your pump will be decided based on how much water you estimate enters your basement during a flooding situation.  Usually your sump pump will be effective enough to pump a water level that reaches your basement ceiling.  If you need a pump that can pump higher than this, your Mr. Rooter technician will help you decide what horsepower you need to ensure your sump pump is as effective as you need it to be.  Your sump pump can also be installed with a backup battery, if you are concerned about power outages in your home.  In this case, the sump pump works off of a battery when it needs to.
