Sump Pump Services in New Port Richey, FL
If you’ve lived in New Port Richey, FL for any length of time, you know how often it rains here. And when those rains turn to hurricanes – or simply don’t stop for days on end – you run the risk of a flood appearing in your home. Sandbags and other preventative measures are often too little, too late, but with a little careful planning and the right equipment, you can ensure your home stays dry.
"The right equipment" in this case, is a sump pump, installed in your basement and standing by to run the minute any floodwaters enter your home. The professionals at Continental Plumbing Services, LLC keep water in its place, and we can perform sump pump installation, sump pump repair, sump pump maintenance and sump pump replacement for you. Call us today and stop those floodwaters in their tracks!
How Do Sump Pumps Work?
Most sump pumps are placed in a shallow pit, dug into the lowest point of your home (usually the basement). When floodwaters enter, they will gravitate towards that point and pour in to the pit. When the sump pump detects the water, it activates: an impeller spins and pulls the water into it, then suctions the water up through a pipe and out of your New Port Richey home.
Proper sump pump installation is vital for the system to function, and for that, you need a team like ours on your side. We’ll discuss the size, make and model that’s right for you, then perform the operation with professionalism and pride!
What’s Required for Sump Pump Installation?
One of the reasons you need a professional service to install a sump pump is because of the delicate balance of factors required to make it work. Some sump pumps can have a manual starting mechanism, requiring you to turn them on to work, while others are designed to start automatically upon detecting flood waters.
Either way, it needs access to your home’s power grid. It will also need to be sized properly, to ensure that it has the pumping power you need, and you need both an ejection pipe leading out of your home and an exhaust vent to keep exhaust from building up. At Continental Plumbing Services, LLC, we have years of experience answering these questions for homeowners throughout the New Port Richey area. We’ll find the right sump pump for you and install it the right way!
