Sump pumps are one of the most important plumbing systems in your home or business and yet are one of the most overlooked. Often little or no thought is given to them until there is a flood in your basement.
JW Brian Plumbing and Heating recommends using only high quality sump pumps along with a backup sump pump and alarm system. There are several types of backup sump pumps available, including battery powered and water powered units, ideal for power outages.
Alarms can be as simple as a water sensor near the sump pit activating an alarm in the house to ones that are tied into your home security system alerting you to imminent flooding via your smart phone.
Owners of a sump pump should test their pump yearly to ensure it is functioning properly. Should you experience a malfunctioning sump pump, call JW Brian Plumbing and Heating for prompt, professional service 24/7 at (780) 249-1496.
