What Type of Sump Pump Do You Need?

When you’re scheduling a sump pump installation, it’s important to know that you have options. Our professional plumbers will help you make the best choice for your specific home and needs, and we will handle the job of installing your pump and excavating the sump (pit) with ease. There are two basic types of sump pumps for you to choose from:

  • Pedestal Sump Pump: This pump rests above the sump and draws water collected in the sump up through a pipe, then sends it through another pipe into the wastewater system. Pedestal pumps are easy to maintain and repair, and have a relatively long service life.
  • Submersible Sump Pump: This type of pump is placed down into the sump. From here, it draws water directly into it through intakes, and then pumps it out through a pipe that leaves the sump. These pumps tend to wear down a bit faster than the pedestal models, however they’re more efficient and, in many cases, more effective too.

We Provide Reliable Sump Pump Maintenance and Repair

No matter what type of sump pump your Santa Barbara, CA home uses, it must have routine maintenance done to allow our plumbing technicians to properly inspect and clean it. We recommend to homeowners that they pour water into the sump before the start of the storm season, to ensure their pump turns on automatically.

If the pump does not turn on, you will need to contact us for sump pump repair (or possibly even sump pump replacement given the nature of the problem). The last thing you want is to be caught in a situation where you finally need your sump pump, only to have it fail on you.

Do You Need Sump Pump Replacement?

Eventually, your sump pump will need to be replaced. We provide quality sump pump maintenance, but even if you invest in this service once a year, as recommended, a sump pump is like any other appliance or piece of equipment in that over time, it accumulates natural wear and tear.

If you’ve used the same sump pump in your Santa Barbara, CA home for years, or if it was already in place when you moved in, it’s a good idea to give our plumbing technicians a call to determine if it’s a good candidate for replacement. You can trust in our professional plumbers to help you make an educated decision about what sump pump type is best for you, and whether replacement is best or you can get by with repair.
