How They Work

Place a sump pump at the lowest point of a home so that, if there is any flooding, it will submerge in water. The sump pump prevents water from flooding the home by redirecting the water to the drainpipes outside. It sends groundwater into a drainage pipe installed around the edges of the foundation. These perforated pipes allow water to flow in. The sump pump then directs the water to a nearby retention pond, storm drain, or dry well. Sump pumps have a float switch and activate when the water reaches a specified level. It’s important to keep in mind that sump pumps come as a standard in most new homes, yet with older homes, you can have them retrofitted with a new sump pump system to prevent flooding in the basement. Roto Rooter Plumbing & Drain are experts at the installation and repair of sump pumps. Get the help that you need for sump pump repair in Chattanooga, TN with our team of experts.

To prevent flooding and further water damage in your basement, a sump pump is an excellent first step. Your sump pump begins to redirect incoming water as high water levels trigger it into action. Over time, sump pumps will wear out and need repair or replacement.

Commercial Sump Pump Maintenance and Repair Services

Commercial Sump Pump Maintenance and Repair Services

Your business needs extra protection from floodwaters and a sump pump is that line of defense. Serious damage to your commercial property, as well as safety issues for the occupants of your business, can be caused by broken pipes, heavy rains, or storm drain back-ups.

Commercial properties such as hotels, apartment buildings, and multi-floor businesses may also have elevator sump pump to prevent flooding in elevator shafts. Working in much the same way as residential sump pumps, commercial sump pumps turn on when water reaches a specified level. The float then triggers a switch to turn the unit on and begin pumping water away from the building.
