Sump Pump Installation Services – Windsor, Essex County
Installing a reliable sump pump system is the most cost effective and least disruptive method for keeping a basement dry. The right pump installed properly can give you peace of mind knowing that any water flowing into your sump pit will be removed, even during heavy downpours.
Two Types – There are two types of sump pumps – submersible and pedestal. A submersible sump pump is submerged under water in the sump pit, and is fairly quiet. A pedestal sump pump is mounted above the pit, and is loud. In Windsor and Essex County, we install both types of sump pumps of different horsepower. Generally, the bigger the pit, the more horsepower is used to discharge the water at a faster rate.
Battery Back Sump Pumps
In Windsor Essex County we are frequently installing battery backup sump pump systems as a precautionary measure. In the event of an emergency such as a power outage or main pump failure, the battery backup kicks in to help prevent flooding.

Test Your Pump Regularly
Like any motor with moving parts, sump pumps eventually fail. Some fail sooner than others because they run more frequently. It’s important to check your pump on a regular basis to make sure it is running properly. The best way to test your pump is to pour a bucket of water into the pit to see if the pump turns on. Watch to see that the water is actually pumped out. Don’t test the pump without water in the pit. This will damage the motor.
Another way to test your pump is to unplug it, then plug it in again. When you look at the outlet where your pump is plugged in, you’ll see two separate plugs. Unplug both, then plug in just the one for the pump. If the pump doesn’t turn on right away, it needs to be repaired or replaced.
