Sump Pump Repair in Oakville, ON

If you hear anything unusual or suspect any deficiencies in your sump pump system, we can assist you in diagnosing and solving the issue at a time that works best for your schedule. There are many risks to your home associated with a malfunctioning system. Ensure your home or business stays clear and free from water damage by maintaining and requesting repair for your sump pump throughout the year.

Types of Sump Pumps

The two primary types are pedastal sump pumps and submersible sump pumps. Pedestal primary pumps are mounted above the sump pit and are convenient for servicing. Submersible primary sump pumps are placed in a sump pit. Oftentimes, this system operates using an electrical power supply in your home. When we experience a power outage, we highly recommend installing a backup sump pump with a marine battery as the power supply. It is imperative to have a backup system especially when you live in a remote area.

How does a Sump Pump work?

Each pump has a float switch which is triggered when the water reaches a preset level. Upon exceeding the level of water, the pump begins to remove water into a nearby storm drain, outdoor area away from the home, or a well. There are alarms that can also be installed to warn you of potential flooding if the system malfunctions.

Sump Pump Replacement in Burlington, ON

​Whether you live in an area with heavy rainstorms, a high water table, or poor drainage, then a sump pump and back up pump are essential to keeping your home safe at all times of the year. This system pumps water and sends it through a discharge line. Water is pumped away from the lowest point of the home’s foundation to protect against basement flooding. Depending on the age of your pump, it is oftentimes better to replace your sump pump. The reasons to replace could be improper installation, pump continuously running, clogged with mud and debris, basin overfilling, or a stuck switch. When you need your back up sump pump replaced, call Harb Plumbing to get the job done right the first time.

Back Flow Water Prevention

The installation and maintenance of a one-way sewage system can prevent wastewater from flowing backwards, which can cause messy and serious problems. This process is known as back flow prevention. When you install a back flow, you reduce the risk of your home flooding and may be elible for insurance savings and/or tax credits from the Government.
