1. Can Sump Pumps Be Repaired?

Yes, sump pumps can be repaired by professional plumbers who can diagnose and fix the problem. Common sump pump issues include clogs, power failures, frozen pipes, and faulty switches. However, some sump pumps may be too old or damaged to be repaired and may need to be replaced.

2. What Is Sump Pump Installation?

Sump pump installation is the process of installing a device that pumps water out of a sump basin, which is a pit or a hole in the lowest part of a basement or crawl space. A sump pump helps prevent flooding and water damage by diverting excess water away from the foundation of the house.

3. What Causes Sump Pump Failure?

Sump pump failure can be caused by various factors, such as power outages, improper installation, lack of maintenance, overwhelmed capacity, or defective parts. Sump pump failure can result in basement flooding, mould growth, and structural damage. Therefore, it is important to regularly check and test your sump pump and have a backup system in case of emergencies.

4, What Is the Best Way to Install a Sump Pump?

The best way to install a sump pump is to hire a professional plumber who has the expertise and equipment to handle the job. Depending on the location and type of the sump pump, the plumber may need to dig a sump basin, drill a discharge hole, connect pipes and wires, and secure the pump in place.

5. What Is Called Sump?

A sump is a low space that collects liquids, such as water or oil. In plumbing, a sump is usually a pit or a basin in the basement or crawl space of a house, where a sump pump is installed to remove water that accumulates from rain, groundwater, or drainage.

6. What Happens If a Sump Pump Fails?

If a sump pump fails, the water level in the sump basin will rise and overflow, causing flooding in the basement or crawl space. This can lead to water damage, mould growth, and structural problems. If the sump pump fails due to a power outage, a backup generator or battery can help keep it running until the power is restored.

7. How Does a Sump Pump Get Water?

A sump pump gets water from the sump basin, which collects water from various sources, such as rain, groundwater, or drainage. The sump pump has a float switch that activates when the water level reaches a certain point. The sump pump then pumps the water out of the basin through a discharge pipe that leads to a safe location away from the house.

Friendly, informative, and overall a pleasure to deal with Chris. Capital Plumbing unfortunately has a $99 show up fee, understandable, and I did not compare prices so will not attest to that but they showed up within 24 hours when a lot of others said within a week.

I used Capital Plumbing at my old residence. They were the best then and still continue to be today. I knew when I called for service for my new place I would definitely get the same service. I was right and they didn’t disappoint. The technician was excellent. The lady that answered the phone was the best customer service representative I have ever talk to. They are very lucky to have such a great representative for their company answer the phone. It all starts with the phone call. I would 100% recommend this company to everyone

(Updated from 1 to 3 stars) They eventually did the work they said they would do but:- they didn’t do the work the first time they came- I had to call them six times to get them to finally listen and come back without charging me even more- the tech complained to my wife that the job was underquoted (even though the quote was given on site after a thorough examination of our system)- I have no way of checking whether he did a good job or rushed through it because he thought we weren’t paying enoughI give 3 stars because the job was eventually completed but I had to hound them and argue to get them to do the job they originally agreed to for the price they quoted. If you want the full story, read on.I asked them to come give me a quote for a water softener and descaling - they originally told me it would be a free quote and then tried to change that to be $100 for a “service call”, which I had to argue to avoid.The tech was friendly and helpful, so I agreed to do the descaling for about $500. After maybe 45 minutes he said he couldn’t do the descaling because he didn’t know if the unit was designed to be descaled, and he admitted he didn’t really do anything for me. He charged me a reduced price but still over $250, and I didn’t think I had any choice. After he left I called the boiler manufacturer and within 10 minutes found out it should be descaled.It took two weeks of me calling over and over, speaking to different receptionists and hearing various reasons they couldn’t do it yet or couldn’t confirm a price and then they would just stop calling me back. Finally I was told I would have to pay the full original price on top of what I already paid. I said that was unacceptable because all I am asking is for them to do what they originally said they would do and I am willing to pay the difference.I was told a manager would reach out to me to discuss. Mid afternoon I called again and was told he had just stepped out but would call as soon as he got back. Finally the next morning he called back and agreed to do what I was asking, and a tech came the next week. The tech was at our house for about 1.5 hours and complained that we were underquoted but still honoured the price.

Second time I’ve used Capital Plumbing because first experience was fantastic as was my current experience. Dave is very knowledgeable and explained everything. Explained the cost process before picking up a part. Will be definitely requesting Dave when needed in the future. Thank you so much.
