SUMP PUMP SERVICES
IN TORONTO, ON
You probably haven’t given your sump pump a second thought since it was first installed in your home. Most homeowners don’t since a sump pump isn’t a plumbing element that’s utilized frequently. That doesn’t mean it’s any less important than your water heater, shower, garbage disposal, or any other plumbing equipment you value dearly. In fact, if you’ve ever found yourself standing ankle-deep in your flooded basement, you probably already have a deep appreciation for your basement sump pump system. If not, we’re here to remedy that.
A sump pump is a plumbing device that’s installed in the lowest corner of your house, usually your basement, to prevent flooding. After periods of heavy rain, the water table can rise and make streets, yards, and basements perceptible to flooding. A proper sump pump installation will ensure that water is collected and deposited away from the building, so your home doesn’t incur any water damage. However, to ensure your appliance will work up to par, you should get regular sump pump services.
Sump Pump Maintenance
The worst way to find out your sump pump isn’t working is through a surprise flood in your basement. Make sure you’re getting regular sump pump services with our experts.

WE'RE READY TO SERVE YOU
SUMP PUMP INSTALLATION
If your current sump pump has exceeded its lifespan or is beyond repair, you should start thinking of getting a sump pump replacement as soon as possible. We make sump pump installations easy by providing a full line of Primary Sump Pumps and Battery Backup Sump Pumps for installation. Modern sump pumps can also be equipped with high-tech features, like wifi-enabled alarms that alert owners if the sump pump overflows or fails.
Backup Sump Pumps –Battery and Non Battery/Electrical
We recommend all homes have a battery-operated backup sump pump, just in case the primary sump pump fails. Battery-operated sump pumps are not connected to the power grid like your main pump, so they will be ready and available to save the day should the main pump experience any problems. Non-battery powered backup sump pumps are connected to your home’s power grid. If the power should happen to go out, such as during a strong storm, a battery-powered backup sump pump will keep working to protect your basement.
During our sump pump services, we also offer ejector pumps for homes that want to ensure waste will be properly disposed of if the municipal sewer lines experience backups. Ejector pumps collect sewage and transfer it to an overhead sewer or septic field.
It is important to test your sump pump regularly to make sure it will operate when the next big downpour 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.
The city of Toronto is currently offering a rebate of $1750 towards the disconnection of your storm drains to the city sewer line, and the installation of a new sump pump draining outside of the home. This is in an effort to reduce the amount of water entering the treatment plants during rainfalls, as well as reducing the flash floods into basements. This is why they also recommend and offer the installation of a backwater valve.
