The basement pump – the forgotten hero!

The basement pump – the forgotten hero!

At the bottom of the basement lies a forgotten hero. This piece of equipment works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week  for 52 weeks of the year keeping the basement a dry usable living space – I am of course talking about the basement sump and pump unit.  Below we can see some pictures from one of our basement sump and pump specialists that show a clients pump that we service and the condition that a pump unit can get into in just 12 months.

Clearly evident on the pump are 12 months worth of dirt, limescale and clay which can build up on the pump unit leading to the pump unit having to work harder than it should.

As you can see following a ‘Clean and Check’ service the sump and pump are looking as good as the day they were first installed – giving the home owner peace of mind that the pump will provide another 12 months of trouble free service.

Brilliant service from Jason , arrived on time and was very friendly and polite, he serviced our pump whilst explaining... in detail what he was doing and what we should expect from our pump system. Mark has done our service for over a decade and I didn’t think anyone could be as good but Jason has filled the slot perfectly. Here’s to another decade of good service from Jason .read more

James from the Basement Sump & Pump Co attended to ensure the basement pump his firm installed last year was working... well. These pumps can draw in sand and dirt so it is important to clean it annually. Pump itself is excellent - definitely recommend this company for the installation of one.read more
