Sump Pumps

Have you ever walked into your Lakeville, MN basement after a big rainstorm and found yourself splashing through ankle-high water? Heavy storms can cause big problems in your home if you don’t have a sump pump installed. Aqueduct Plumbing Co. is your family owned Lakeville, MN plumbing company that offers sump pump installation before it becomes an emergency.

A sump pump is an electric pump typically placed in a pit in the basement or the lowest point of your Minnesota home. During heavy rainstorms, water that would otherwise flood into your basement is diverted into the pit with the pump. When the water level reaches a certain point, the float valve on the sump pump activates and flushes the pump basically like a toilet, removing the water from your home so it doesn’t flood the basement. Sump pumps are a cost-effective way to prevent major damage to your basement and protect your valuables.

Without frequent sump pump testing, you can’t be sure if your sump pump is going to work when you need it –and when your sump pump doesn’t work, even a moderate rainstorm could spell trouble for your home!

Sump Pump

The type of sump pump you install will depend on your home’s needs. Below are three main types we install and repair:

  • Water powered back-up pump: A water powered back-up sump pump operates without electricity or a battery. It uses your municipal water supply to power the pump. For every gallon of water used, a water powered back-up pump will remove two gallons from the flooded area.
  • Submersible pump: Submersible sump pumps are most popular, as they can be submerged with no adverse effects to the motor. They are also easier to handle and prove more efficient.
  • Battery back-up pumps: Battery back-up pumps operate off a battery in the event of a power failure. It will automatically kick on when your primary pump stops working.
