Fast & Efficient Sump Pump or Lift Station Repair Services
Our plumbers at Aramendia specialize in performing routine sump pump repair and maintenance. A typical pump’s running life is 10 years, so if issues arise within that window, we’ll first look for problems that can be solved through repair rather than immediately suggesting a new sump pump installation, all in hopes of saving you money.
We’ll check all of the follow sump pump components:
- Float switch – Often times the first place we’ll look is at the float trigger, which can wear out or get caught on debris.
- Check Valve – We’ll visually inspect the check valve to make sure that it's operating properly.
- Electrical system – We’ll check the pump wiring and electrical outlet to make sure the correct current is available.
- Test cycle – Finally, we’ll fill the sump and make sure the pump cycles properly.
- Leaks – We’ll also inspect for any leaks along the drainage line, which lead to water patches or sinkholes on your lawn.
We at Aramendia pride ourselves in performing fast and efficient sump pump repair to help restore confidence in your home’s sump pump system and peace-of-mind in knowing it’s been cared for by the best in the industry.
What is a Lift Station?
A lift station is a basin with an electric pump and a float switch.
A lift station typically works as follows:
- Water and waste rise to a certain level triggering a float switch which activates the pump.
- A discharge pipe carries the wastewater through an underground system to a point in the sewer system where gravity can take over.
- A check valve at the pump keeps wastewater from flowing back into the sump basin.
A lift station is installed where gravity drainage of a plumbing system is not possible.
