Sump Pump Installers: Sump Pump Replacement and Installation

  Sump Pump Installers Service by Leone PlumbingA sump pump is an important piece of equipment in your home. It prevents groundwater from entering your basement. As springtime approaches,  the snow starts to melt and the water goes into people’s basements. Frequent basement flooding may cause the sump pump to fail and may require replacement. If this happens, you need a reliable service from trusted sump pump installers.

Common Issue With Sump Pumps

One of the common issues that our sump pump installers have encountered is stuck sump pump float. The usual reasons for stuck sump pump float are blockages, dirt build-up, and damaged attachment arms. Any obstructions may cause the float to get out of place. If water has been sloshed on your sump pump and expelled a lot of air, this may cause the float to stuck on the sides of the sump pit. With this scenario, our sump pump installers may reset the pump into a better position to avoid obstructions.

When to replace a sump pump?

Any appliance will one day reach its end of life. If a sump pump isn’t working, then it’s cost-effective to replace the sump pump entirely. When the time approaches to replace the unit, you will begin to see these obvious signs.
Loud Noises
You will get to hear the sump pump operating if you get really close to it. It is very odd to hear loud grinding or gurgling noise from a sump pump. It is an obvious sign that the motor is malfunctioning.
No Water in the Sump Pit
If there is no water in the sump pit while the sump pump is running, then this tells you that it’s not connected to the drainage system. The pit is empty maybe because the sump pump was not installed properly or due to clogged drainage.  As soon as you see the pit is empty, call a professional plumber immediately.
Contaminants in the Sump Pit
With heavy flooding,  debris and contaminants may get into the sump pump and clog the system. Eventually, this will slow down the equipment until it fails.
No Power
Most sump pumps operate on electricity and will stop working without power. A sump pump may lose power due to a blown fuse, dead battery backup, and accidental removal of the plug from the outlet.
Recommendation: 
We recommend a “water-powered backup” system and water alert sensors. The water-powered backup will take over during a power outage if the water level rises too high. The alerting sensors will alert the homeowner’s cell phone if the basement starts to flood (this does require that the internet is working though).

Leone Plumbing was so responsive when I called regarding a clogged kitchen sink. I was able to get same day service and Jameson arrived during the service window I was promised. He was friendly and professional, up front about the cost associated with the issue, and the process to get the issue resolved. He did a fantastic job, cleaned up thoroughly, and provided some great tips so that the issue wouldn’t happen again. I will definitely be calling Leone Plumbing again when another issue arises.

I write very few reviews however, I feel as though this one needed to be reviewed. 7am on a Friday and we wake up to a leak with our tankless water heater, literally calling around leaving messages. Andy returned my call almost immediately. We talked through the logistics and he gave me a price and said he could do it same day. (no one else even had one available to do same day!) It wasn't cheap but it was necessary. As promised the boys showed up in the p.m. swapped it out and were gone by dinner time. I never, ever would have known he was handling all of this while on the road bringing his kid home from college. Honestly one of the most professional companies I have ever dealt with. You rock Andy!!!! Thank you so very much!!

I unfortunately had to contact Leone Plumbing due to an unknown leak. They came out right away and found the leak was actually a water line in my refrigerator. There was so much damage and I honestly had no clue what to do. Best part about Andy is that he was able to help out with everything. He explained the insurance process to me and talked to the adjusters for me. He kept me in the loop and he was able to turn my kitchen into a brand new one. I am more than happy with their service and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND their services. They are an honest hard working company that looks out for their customers.
