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, mold 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, mold 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.

This is my second time using the team at capital heating and plumbing and I can honestly say there team has some real hero’s.We had the please of having Jesse Piech as our plumber today he was on time respectable and he even went out of his way to help get the neighbours cat out of a tree on his lunch break I might add all well his pogo went cold( luckily he installed our new range all before lunch so he could warm it up)Capital plumbings team swept and whipped down the area they worked in and cleaned up all the mess and left our home looking even better than when they got there.I would recommend this company to anyone needing service done right with great people it was nice to have trades men with out potty mouths and can clean up after ones self.

It has been two years and we love our John Wood water heater!Tom and his Capital Plumbing install team were quiet, efficient, friendly and cleaned up the area well following install.At the same time, all sinks had an easy-to-use shut-off valve added beneath for safety in case of water emergency, a water line for future refrigerator was installed and they threw in a new, safe hose attachment for the clothes washer to replace the aging rubber. Never even thought of it. You never want a water line to burst!

Great experience. Capital plumbing was able to get me in within 2 days whereas all other plumbing companies I called couldn't get me in until next week. I was late returning Toms call, so he took the liberty of doing an inspection on my home and flagged a couple more issues before fixing the one I called about. Really appreciate his diligence and customer service!

A couple of weeks ago Darren replaced our hot water tank after it burst. Capital was so quick to respond and Darren was very good. He helped with the flood we had from the tank. Within a few hours we had a new water tank installed. Today Daniel came back and did amazingly replacing our sump pump and cleaning our furnace and humidifier. He is very thorough and did a great job explaining our issues. Thanks Capital plumbing and heating for always being there for us and having the best employees.
