Keeping Basements Dry in Fitchburg Since Fitchburg

Keeping Homes in Fitchburg Dry

Most flooding in Fitchburg results from groundwater buildup. As the earth beneath your house becomes saturated, water seeps through cracks in the foundation. This leads to plumbing backups, sewer issues, and extensive property damage. If not rectified, these issues can permanently impact your home’s value and destroy your furnace and other high-value appliances. One easy, inexpensive way to prevent this issue is to install a sump pump.

As expert local plumbers, RFPH understands the devastating impact water damage can have on your home and budget. That is why we provide comprehensive sump pump services throughout the West Townsend, Lunenburg, and Fitchburg areas. So, if peace of mind tops your list of needs, give us a call at (978) 597-1868 for a no-obligation quote on sump pump installation.

What Sump Pumps Are and Why They’re Important

What Sump Pumps Are and Why They’re Important

Sump pumps use specialized sensors and floats to detect raising water levels. If it raises above a certain amount, the pump will turn on and transfer the excess water from your foundation or slab to the nearest well, pond, or storm drain. Fully submersible and waterproof, these pumps are typically installed in a sump pit at the lowest point of your crawl space, home, or basement.

As alluded to earlier, these simple systems are the best way to prevent home flooding in Fitchburg. Whether the cause is a broken levy or a backed-up pipe, they’re there to help keep your home and possessions dry.

Types of Residential Sump Pumps

Types of Residential Sump Pumps

There are three main types of pumps typically used in residential homes. Many people erroneously refer to all three as sump pumps, but (though they perform similar functions), there are some differences. A short explanation of these follow:

  • Sump Pump: As explained earlier, these pumps are installed in a basin in your basement, home, or crawlspace. These devices are used to remove water that seeps in through the foundation. They are typically installed in houses that flood on a regular basis. Usually, these are homes on lower ground.
  • Sewage Pumps: Sometimes referred to as ejector pumps, these pumps are designed to remove waste water and solid waste from your home. This device is typically installed in homes where gravity can’t provide the energy needed to clean out the system. You’ll often find them in multi-level homes. Installation locations for sewage pumps vary.
  • Back-Up Pumps: Back-up pumps protect your basement or home from flooding if the main sump pump fails or a power outage occurs. Though more affordable, we advise homeowners to avoid battery-operated back-up pumps. The batteries don’t last long and often only provide a brief reprieve from flooding in Fitchburg. Water-operated pumps can function without any outside source of power for as long as necessary.

Fortunately, when it comes to residential sump pump service in Fitchburg, our expert plumbers can handle almost anything. So, whether the issue is with your sump pump or backup pump, our plumbing experts are just a phone call away.
