Homeowners throughout Columbus, Seymour, and Indianapolis, IN trust us to keep their basements dry, so they can avoid the cost of damage and the inconvenience of long-term issues like mold and dry rot.

The Importance of a Working Sump Pump

Sump pumps are located in your basement and serve to pump out any water that may be incoming. They’re installed in sump pits, which collect water at the lowest point, activating the pump so it can be pumped back out.

When heavy rains or flash floods cause water to seep into your basement, the sump pump is what prevents them from becoming uncontrollable. An effective sump pump can remove water before it has a chance to do any damage, keeping your basement dry and clean. Most importantly, it prevents the after-effects of basement flooding—pests, mold, mildew and other unwelcome issues.

Common Sump Pump Problems

Sump pumps only work if they’re well-maintained. If your sump pump is damaged, call us before the next storm passes through Columbus, IN! We’ll deliver sump pump repair to fix some of the most common issues your sump pump might be facing:

  • Pump doesn’t run when sump pit starts to fill with water
  • Pump cycles on and off very frequently
  • Pump continues to run after water is gone, or runs all the time
  • Float is broken and pump doesn’t activate

We recommend that you have a primary sump pump and use a battery or water-driven sump pump if you have areas that retain water. Barr Plumbing Service, Inc. can add a high-quality generator that can keep your sump pumps and other essential items running in the home during a power outage.
