We use submersible sump pumps. The motor is completely mounted inside the sump and sealed. This option is more visually appealing, and safer if children are in the home. Pumps may discharge to the sanitary sewer in older installations. Once considered acceptable, this practice may now violate the plumbing code or municipal bylaws, because it can overwhelm the municipal sewage treatment system. Municipalities urge homeowners to disconnect and reroute sump pump discharge away from sanitary sewers. Fines may be imposed for noncompliance. Many homeowners have inherited their sump pump configurations and do not realize that the pump discharges into the sewer.

If you already have a sump pump, you may need to replace your existing pump. We guarentee your new sump pump will be installed correctly. Consider a battery back-up sump pump to guard against power failures, common with bad weather. Also check it for proper operation a few times a year. You donít want to find out your sump pump is broken during a severe thunderstorm, so test it before the rainy season! Damp basements can become breeding grounds for mold and mildew.
