Sump Pump Replacement and Installation

Why Install a Sump Pump?

Sump pump installation is recommended for any location that may be prone to flooding. A sump pump is a specialized appliance that moves water from one area to another and can thus help avoid a flood. For homes, sump pumps are most often used to avoid the basement flooding that can occur due to severe weather or because the home is in a low-lying area that can be subject to high water tables. If you are unsure if a sump pump is the right choice for your home or business, Horn can help. Our team can perform an inspection, answer your questions, and provide our professional recommendation, and if you choose to move ahead with installation, we will assist you in selecting the optimal equipment.

Emergency Sump Pump Repair Services

A sump pump that fails while pumping water is a serious problem that can lead to substantial water damage. A failed sump pump can also shut down business operations and lead to financial losses. For these reasons, Horn has expert plumbers on call around the clock, including on weekends and during the holidays. Whenever you need us, even if it is in the middle of the night, we’ll make you a priority and arrive as soon as possible with all of the equipment needed to get your sump pump working again. Our team will diagnose the problem quickly and perform a precision repair that you can count on.

How a Sump Pump Works

When planning your sump pump installation, your installer will choose the lowest practical point as this is where the water will accumulate. In houses, this is often a basement or a crawl space. Water is channeled into a ditch, which is also called a sump pit. In some scenarios, channeling is achieved simply through grading of the surrounding area, and in other cases, it may involve perforated piping or other more elaborate setups. When the water in the sump pit reaches a set level, the sump pump activates and pumps the water to another location, which is typically the closest storm drain.

Sump Pump Replacement and Installation

A sump pump is an effective line of defense against flooding for your home or business. Heavy rains, high water tables, backed-up storm drains, and broken pipes are all common reasons that you can experience flooding and thus substantial water damage. Horn installs sumps pumps for residential and commercial purposes throughout southeastern Pennsylvania. If you currently have a sump pump that needs to be replaced, Horn has replacement specialists that can assist with that as well. We also repair sump pumps. Depending on the age, replacement may not be the best course of action, and if you have suffered water damage due to a failed sump pump, Horn can also assist you with that.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Sump pumps can last for a decade or more, and the best way to avoid premature sump pump installation and lower your total costs is routine maintenance. The most common sump pump mistake we encounter is ignoring the equipment until there is a problem. Horn strongly encourages our customers to be proactive. We recommend at least an annual service in which you have your sump pump professionally cleaned and inspected. During this service, your technician will also correct any wear and tear that has occurred through usage. Not only does this lower your basic costs over the life of the equipment, but it also makes it much less likely that you will experience sudden sump water failure. Water damage from an unexpected failure will typically be far more expensive than annual maintenance.

Different Types of Sump Pumps

As a leading sump pump installation company, Horn Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning installs, maintains, and repairs the many different types of sump pumps that are used for residential and commercial purposes throughout southeastern Pennsylvania. The four core types are submersible, pedestal, combination, and battery backup. Submersible sump pumps are a cost-effective choice that are designed to be fully submerged within the sump pump. Pedestal sump pumps are often the most affordable choice upfront and are often employed in low-usage scenarios. Combination sump pumps are generally submersibles with a secondary pump that kicks in if the primary fails. Battery backup sump pumps are also secondary units that are able to operate even when the main power is out.
