Sump Pump Services in Reisterstown
Ensuring Your Home Is Protected from Flooding & Water Damage
Have you ever heard the horror stories of the family down the street who had their basement flood during the last big storm? Maybe that poor soul was you! As you probably already know, things can get out of hand very quickly if your sump pump isn’t working properly.
A sump pump is an electric pump which is typically located in a pit in the basement, as this is commonly the lowest point in the home. During heavy rain, water that would otherwise be infiltrating your basement is redirected towards that pit because of the pump. The sump pump will also periodically flush itself when water reaches a certain level, moving it away from your home. A reliable sump pump can be the sole difference between another rainy afternoon and many thousands of dollars in damage to your home.
When was the last time you tested your sump pump? Unfortunately, the answer is very likely “too long ago.” If you don’t know how to test your pump, that’s something our expert Reisterstown sump pump specialists are happy to show you how to do. It’s important to know what condition your pump is in before the next big storm hits.

Install a Backup Sump Pump for Added Protection
In Reisterstown, we're no strangers to heavy rains and storms that can very easy knock out the power. When the power goes out, your sump pump will fail to work and you could be dealing with a flooding disaster. This is why we recommend installing a backup pump. These devices are battery operated and immediately switch on when the power to your primary pump fails. It will continue to work until the battery dies or the power returns. There are many options for backup sump pumps, including some that are water powered.
Our experienced plumbers at Bruce Solomon Plumbing, Heating & Air will assess your needs and recommend products that will adequately protect your property from flooding without breaking the bank.
