If you recently purchased a home or are renting you should be familiar with all the equipment that runs your house. In the lowest part of your crawlspace or basement you will find a Sump Pump which is used to keep that area dry. This area is where water naturally flows. The Sump Pump will work to make sure extensive amounts of water don’t flood the area. There is also the protection from moisture damage, mold and mildew.
If you see water in your crawlspace or basement, you’ll want to contact a plumber immediately. Pick up the phone and call Cannonball Mechanical at 630-896-4004 or fill out the form on this page and we will schedule a time to come out and see if your sump pump is still working properly.
Different Types of Sump Pumps
There are two types of sump pumps. One is called the submersible sump pump. This kind of pump has a sealed motor. This unit is designed to be full covered by water. The sump pit needs to be larger to fit everything but the larger the sump pump, the larger volume of water it can contain.
The second type of sump pump is called a pedestal pump. This is when the pump has a shaft that holds the pump above the basin. In other words, that’s when the motor is above the water. If you’re in the market for a sump pump because you need a new one or just need to purchase one altogether, consider having it installed right before the spring months. Spring typically means thunderstorms so having the right sump pump, you can avoid any disasters that may occur.
