Mister Plumber, how do I know if I need a sump pump?
Floods are a high risk in urban areas like Toronto since we’re located around lakes, rivers, and harbours. And weather conditions like heavy rainfall, melting snow and ice don’t help homeowners in the war against overflowing water either.
Here’s how you know that you need a sump pump:
- You live in a snowy/wet region (Toronto!). Our winters are no joke. The more water nature throws your way, the more you’ll need a sump pump to save you the headache.
- You’re noticing a lot of water in your basement. If there’s a water build-up anywhere in your basement or there has been before, that means water is finding its way into your basement, but not Let’s fix that.
- Water is seeping through your basement walls or floors. If you have cracks in your foundation, that water is coming through. A sump pump will help to alleviate the water pressure and hopefully fix the cracks while it’s at it.
- You notice that things are growing where they shouldn’t be. If there’s any kind of mould, mildew, or fungus growing in your basement, that means there’s too much moisture. Not only is this gross, but it can also be dangerous for your family’s health.
Time to invest in a sump pump!
Pick your type: Get certified plumbers to set up your ideal sump pump.
Choose from four types of sump pumps based on what works best for your Toronto home: submersible, pedestal, battery-powered backup, and water-powered backup.
Check out the pros and cons of each:
Submersible sump pumps
A submersible pump combines the pump and motor into one unit. They’re completely submerged in a basin in your basement, making them quieter, space-efficient, and less clog-prone than pedestal pumps. While immersion in water may shorten their lifespan, this is still the best option for major flooding concerns.
Pedestal sump pumps
Unlike a submersible pump, a pedestal sump pump has the motor sitting on a pedestal above the basin, while the rest of the pump is submerged. This way the water is pumped through the hose to your designated drain area. These are louder than submersible pumps and require more maintenance, but they tend to last longer.
Battery-powered backup sump pumps
Run your battery-powered backup sump pump worry-free even if your power goes out during a storm with a reliable battery and float switch. When power outages shut off the pump’s main power source, the water in the basin rises and the float switch triggers your battery into action.
Water-powered backup sump pumps
Water-powered backup sump pumps are powered by your municipal water supply. The wastewater stuck in your basin is power-flushed by increased water pressure. While this can raise your water bill, it’s a great eco-friendly and reliable solution for power outages since they don’t need batteries. These require special installation, so it’s best to call in the professionals at Mister Plumber to set this up for you.
