Sump Pump Installation

Sump pump is really good at what it does—removing water from underneath your basement and preventing flooding. Whether you want to install a sump pump as a precautionary measure or your builder or waterproofing contractor has recommended it, Michael Runk Plumbing & Heating is here to lend you a hand. Our master plumbers can professionally install a new sump pump or replace your old one.

Worried about power outages? We can also help you choose and install a backup system for your sump pump that will keep the pump working even if the power goes out. Some backup systems include a secondary pump, while others take advantage of the pressure of your water supply. Depending on your plumbing system setup, we can recommend the perfect backup solution for your needs.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Water processed by your sump pump is often muddy and not without debris. All the sediment, iron bacteria and debris in the water may eventually clog or damage parts of the sump pump and the drainage system. It’s a good idea to get your sump pump checked out and cleaned on a regular basis, especially after a long period of inactivity. In Maryland, it can rain hard year round, so there is no specific timeline for maintenance. But if you call us in to service your sump pump once or twice a year, no matter the season, this could save you from a major basement flooding!

Consider scheduling a maintenance appointment soon if your sump pump:

  • Shows visible rust
  • Is 7 years or older and hasn’t been serviced in a while
  • Passed on to you from the previous home owner

Sump Pump Repair

Every pump has a lot of moving parts, which means these parts may eventually wear down and fail. Some of the common sump pump problems include a stuck float switch, sump pump running nonstop, excessive noise or vibration. No matter what it is, call us and our Maryland sump pump repair technicians will come to check it out and repair.

Unfortunately, many times problems are revealed or sump pump stops working entirely when it’s most needed. To avoid this situation and potential flooding, test your sump pump after long periods of inactivity. Simply pour a bucket of water into the sump pit to activate the float switch and wait for the pump to kick in. If it doesn’t, you’ve got a problem!
