Sump Pump Installation, Repair & Maintenance

Basement flooding can be caused by rain, a damaged pipe, or high water table. A sump pump can help keep the basement or crawlspace dry and prevent severe damage to your property. B & J Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. provides installation, repair, and maintenance of sump pumps in Wilson and throughout Wilson County.

For more information about sump pumps, call B & J at (252) 512-5651.

The Purpose of a Sump Pump

According to the American Society of Home Inspectors, approximately 60% of American homes have a problem with wetness in the basement or crawlspace. Basement flooding can result in significant damage to your property and diminish your property value. Sump pumps are installed in sump pits in the basement. As the pit fills with water, the sump pump moves the water away from your home to prevent flooding and keep the basement dry. There are a few different types of sump pumps available.

Before buying a sump pump for your home, it can be helpful to consider the following:

  • Cast iron pumps have a longer life than plastic
  • A submersible pump with an airtight lid will reduce noise and keep moist air out of the house
  • A pump with an alarm to alert you to rising water
  • Battery backup pumps will run when the power goes out
  • A secondary pump can be installed to take over if the primary one fails

We can explain your options, assess your basement or crawlspace, and provide the information you need to make the right decision for your home. Our technicians will make sure your new pump is installed correctly for reliable performance.

Keeping Your Sump Pump Running

Because a sump pump does not go on until it is needed, you may not know there is a problem until it fails to switch on when the water is rising. Regular inspection and maintenance of your sump pump can ensure that it is ready to go when you need it. At B & J, we offer repair and maintenance services for sump pumps in Wilson.

Does A House Need Two Sump Pumps?

Having two sump pumps is a very good idea. It's good to have both a primary and a backup. The backup could just be a battery back up. The reason it's a good idea to have two pumps is in the instance of a major storm threatening a flooded basement. Two pumps eliminates the possibility of one pump dying or not being able to handle the amount of water.

Please call (252) 512-5651 for all your sump pump installation, repair, and maintenance needs.
