Manhattan, KS Sump Pumps by M & S Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc.

Basements and crawlspaces are pretty common in this area, and most of the time they’re quite convenient. During heavy storms, however, they can become quite nightmarish. If you’ve ever had a basement or crawl space flood, you know exactly what we’re talking about. Pumping out all of that water, then paying to remediate the damage, adds up to quite a bit of expense for something that is completely preventable! Installing a sump pump in an area of your home that is vulnerable to flooding can prevent that from ever happening again. Call M & S Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. today, and ask about our sump pump services.

What Is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a device that collects and pumps water out of an area, in order to prevent it from flooding. They are very common in areas that are vulnerable to flooding during heavy rains and the like. The first step to installing a sump pump is to dig out a small pit, called a "sump," in the lowest part of the area. This is so that all water that enters the area will flow into the sump. Next, a pump is installed either in the sump or on top of it. A pipe runs from the sump pump out of the house, in order to provide an exit route for the water. As water flows into the sump, the sump pump pumps it out of the area. This prevents the water level from rising and flooding the area.

When a Sump Pump Is a Good Idea

Any area of your home that either has flooded before or could possibly do so at some point in the future is a good place for a sump pump. It may seem rather wasteful to install one of these devices in an area that has never flooded before, even though it’s possible. However, repairing all the damage from actual flooding is far and away more expensive than installing a sump pump as a preventive measure. As previously mentioned, basements and crawl spaces are the most common targets for sump pump installation. This is because they are below ground, and water tends to collect in them once it manages to enter. If you are unsure of whether or not you could benefit from installing a sump pump in your home, call M & S Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc.. One of our technicians will evaluate your property, and make a recommendation based on your individual situation.

We Install, Repair, and Maintain Sump Pumps

Sump pump installation is something that should only be done by a professional, for a number of reasons. First, it requires a lot of construction work, like digging the sump and running the pipe through your home. Second, the sump pump itself needs to be properly aligned in order to operate properly. Otherwise, the area it’s supposed to protect just might flood anyway. That’s why you should trust us to handle your sump pump installation for you. We also repair and tune up sump pumps. So, if you need a sump pump installed or serviced, call M & S Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. today.
