Sump Pumps

Flood prevention is a real issue for those living in the Pacific Northwest.

It’s likely you’re going to have to deal with a flooded basement at some point and it doesn’t take much water to cause thousands of dollars of damage. Even without flooding, a moist basement can lead to mold and mildew growth.

How does a sump pump work?

At Your Service Plumbing can help you keep your home dry, even on the rainiest days.

Sump pumps have been in homes for years, but became a requirement in 1987 with the Federal Clean Water Act. It is very common to see sump pumps in newly constructed homes.

By installing a sump pump in the lowest part of your basement or crawlspace, you can prevent flooding and keep the area dry. Most of the time a sump pump is installed in a custom-made sump pit. When water flows into the sump pit, the sump pump pumps the water away from your home, keeping you flood-free and dry.
