Sump Pumps in Clovis, NM
The sump pump is a popular means of avoiding the various moisture and flood-related problems that can occur at the lowest point of any foundation within a home. When not under control, water can become a potentially destructive force if allowed to seep into the home and damage your belongings or the structure of the building itself. We offer a number of high quality sump pumps for installation in the greater Clovis, NM area, including pedestal and submersible models. We can find one that works well for your needs.
Moreover, we also offer outstanding sump pump repair and maintenance. You should fully expect your sump pump to operate for years to come when properly installed, but because it’s the type of equipment that does not operate all the time, routine care will make sure that your sump pump is there for you when you need it most. We’ve been in business for 16 years and we employ highly skilled and rigorously trained licensed plumbers.
Call Mark Carpenter Plumbing today for sump pump services throughout Clovis, NM and surrounding areas.
Types of Sump Pumps
There is not just one type of sump pump. There are in fact a handful of different models, which is all the more reason to call in professionals so that they can advise you about which one would work best. Generally speaking, there are pedestal sump pumps and submersible sump pumps. All sump pumps have the basic function of transporting incoming water out of the lowest part of your home by means of a pump. While a pedestal sump pump sits above the pit (or sump), a submersible model sits within it. In many respects, the submersible model is more advantageous, because it is quieter and hidden. But there are some instances when only a pedestal model will do. We can help you find the right model for your home and then make sure the sump pump installation is completed perfectly. We also replace sump pumps.
Common Problems with Sump Pumps
There will come a time when your sump pump no longer does what it’s supposed to do. Perhaps you’ve notice that it’s stopped working entirely, or it’s making some kind of strange noise that it’s never done before. Whatever the problem may be, we can handle it. Here are some common issues:
- Electrical failure: Water and electricity are not a good combination. While your sump pump is sealed and obviously designed to handle a certain amount of water, it is also electrically powered, and electrical failure is a common cause of a sump pump’s inability to function.
- Overwhelmed by water: Even the most sturdy sump pump may be overwhelmed by flooding. When properly installed, they should be able to handle the majority of incoming water, but their capacity is limited.
If you’re having any problems operating your sump pump, call us. We also offer sump pump maintenance, and we can test your unit regularly to ensure that it will be there for you when it needs to be.
