No one knows sump pumps better than we do, no other company is better equipped to provide the specialized parts and service you may need. Proudly serving the area.

We have serviced thousands of homes in the area since 1996.

No one knows your sump pumps better than we do, and no other company is better equipped to provide the specialized parts and service you may need. Our factory trained technicians carry everything that is needed to complete the job right the first time.

Whether it is the replacement of your main sump pump, a new battery back up sump pump installation or a component needed to service your back up sump pump, We have them all.

A back up sump pump is a must!

What is water intrusion and how can I prevent flooding?

Water is always around the outside perimeter of your basement foundation wall. The reason for this is that we sit on a clay base under the topsoil where your foundation is located. Your home is designed with a drainage system built on the outside to direct the water away from the foundation and divert it to your sump pit. The sump pump then discharges the water out side your home to keep you safe and dry.

If your sump pump fails or you have a power outage, water will fill your sump pit and eventually your home. Even the unfinished basement will suffer potential loss as your mechanicals (furnace, water heater and possibly laundry equipment) are subject to damage. Everyone dreads the word mold and rightfully so, mold is now being found to cause many respiratory issues along with allergy issues.

To protect against this, a top quality primary sump pump and a battery back up sump pump system are your only real defense against Mother Nature.

We specialize in the latest technologies. High volume sump pumps that are energy efficient, water alarms, dual float switches and battery back up sump pumps designed to keep you dry.

BATTERY CORROSION IS A “SYSTEM KILLER.”

EVEN IF THERE ARE NO ALARMS, ANNUAL CHECK-UPS OF PRIMARY AND BACKUP PUMP SYSTEMS ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, TO ENSURE PROPER OPERATION WHEN PUMPS HAVE THEIR HIGHEST DEMAND.

CORROSION, LOW BATTERY VOLTAGE, LOW WATER LEVELS IN THE BATTERY, LOOSE FITTINGS/CHECK VALVES, OBSTRUCTED FLOAT SWITCH, AND EXCESSIVE PIT DEBRIS CAN ALL LEAD TO A PUMP FAILURE AND FLOODING.

NOT ALL PROBLEMS WHICH HINDER PROPER PUMP OPERATION ARE OBVIOUS, OR EVEN VISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE.

DURING A SERVICE CHECK-UP, WE WILL ENSURE THE FOLLOWING:

CHECK VALVES ARE TIGHTENED

NO LEAKING FITTINGS

BATTERY HOLDS REQUIRED CHARGE

CORROSION IS COMBATTED

MAIN PUMP WORKS PROPERLY

BACK UP PUMP WORKS PROPERLY

BATTERY CELLS HAVE SUFFICIENT WATER LEVELS

BACKUP CONTROL PANEL RESPONDS TO FAULTS; ACTIVATES PROPERLY

FLOAT SWITCHES UNOBSTRUCTED AND OPERATING FREELY

PIT DEBRIS IS MINIMIZED

Compare to 10+ AMPS on other pumps

Pump will pay for itself in energy savings

2 floats for added redundancy

Won’t get “hung up”

Protective cage prevents debris or wires from interfering with float operation

Dual ball bearings

Permanent split capacitor motor

Dual shaft seals to protect the motor

Water cooled

All Basement AC pumps are rated for continuous duty – built to run continuously 24 hours a day, 365 days a year

Durable and reliable

Used intermittently in a sump application, extends the life of the pump

There are two (2) different types of water pumps used to provide water to your home or business Submersible and Jet Wall pumps. We have the products and knowledge to install, replace, or repair a water system that fits your needs.

Submersible Pumps

Submersible well pumps are long cylinders usually 3 to 5 inches in diameter and 2 to 4 feet long. Submersible pumps can be set several hundred feet deep in the well if needed. The electric motor and the pump are installed as one unit in the water in the well. An electric cable is attached to the motor, and a pipe comes up the well from the pump to the top of the well. When the pump switches on, the motor runs and turns a series of impellers that push water up out of the well. A submersible well pump delivers more water – and more pressure – compared to a jet well pump of the same horsepower.

Jet Well Pumps

Jet well pumps are not installed in the water and may be installed in or outside of a 24″ bored well or outside of a 6″ drilled well. A jet well pump provides less water per minute and less pressure than a submersible well pump of the same horsepower. Jet pumps use more electricity than submersible pumps.

Shallow Well Jet Pumps

Jet pumps work by pumping water under pressure through an ejector into a discharge pipe coming up from the well. As the jet of high pressure water is forced into the discharge pipe, it creates a vacuum and causes water to be drawn from the well. Back at the surface, some of the water is piped to the plumbing system and some is routed back to the ejector to raise more water from the well. Shallow well jet pumps are not effective at depths below 25 ft at sea level but have the advantage of having no working parts down the well and so can be used in narrow diameter wells. Shallow well pumps have one pipe going down in the well into the water.

Deep Well Jet Pumps

Deep well jet pumps are similar to shallow well jet pumps but the ejector is installed down the well instead of being attached to the pump. Deep well jet pumps can pull water from depths of 90 ft. Deep well jet pumps have two pipes going down in the well into the water.

Pump Tanks

Pump Tanks or water storage tanks are used in conjunction with well pump water systems. There are different sizes and different material types – either – fiberglass or steel. The proper size pump tank to use with a water system depends on the GPM (gallons per minute) of water a water pump will pump at a given water pressure. It is best for a pump to run at least 1 minute when it cuts on and before it cuts off to prevent motor damage. Constant starting and stopping of a pump is the primary reason for failure of the water pump’s motor. Sometimes the pump tank may be water logged (tank completely full of water) to be the cause of pump cutting on & off to often. If so, the pump tank needs to be replaced with the correct size tank. The proper way to size a pump tank for a water pump can be performed by using this chart.
