Why Would I Need Basement Pump Servicing in Dorset?

Dorset is famous for its coastline, and it’s this close proximity to the coast that is responsible for the higher levels of humidity and rainfall in the area. Because Dorset is more likely to see rainfall and humidity in higher ranges than areas further inland, it’s more likely that the ground in the area is going to be saturated more often than other areas.

So, if you own a property in Dorset that has a basement or cellar, then it’s more likely that this basement will face more regular flooding than properties further north.

With that in mind, it’s going to be important to keep your pump in a condition ready to protect against the high levels of rainfall and humidity that Dorset receives. This means consistent servicing, at intervals of no longer than 12 months.

One of our specialist engineers will be fully capable of helping your sump pump stay in top condition throughout the year, and keep on working as it should be even when the rain is heavy and your basement is at its highest likelihood of flooding.

Remember, a sump pump is a piece of working machinery, and we always recommend that any repairs are carried out by somebody properly trained and qualified. Call our engineers today on 0800 019 9949, or fill in one of our online forms and a member of our team will be in touch.

When Would I Need a Sump Pump Installed in Dorset?

Modern waterproofing standards reflect modern technology, and the simple fact is that plenty of properties in Dorset may well have been constructed long before contemporary basement waterproofing methods were available – or even possible.

So, if you own a property in Dorset that is older, then it may well be time to look into modern waterproofing options, especially if the waterproofing already present in the property has failed, or if you believe that your property was built without any form of waterproofing whatsoever.

Luckily, one of the most popular and easy to install basement waterproofing systems is also the least invasive and easiest to apply.

Cavity drainage systems are waterproofing measures designed to collect and remove would be floodwater from your property before it ever has the change to damage the interior of your basement.

Sheets of waterproof membrane are affixed to your properties affected walls and flooring, which traps and water behind it, channelling it all towards the connected sump pump, which in turn collects the water, before pumping it away from the property safely.

The cavity drainage system has become such a popular method of basement waterproofing because it can all be hidden away behind plasterboard and under flooring, making it entirely invisible and capable of being decorated on top of.

The only accessible point within the cavity drainage system that will need to be fitted is the sump pump chamber, as it needs to be maintained, cleaned, and potentially repaired. So, if you would like to make sure that any sump pump you have installed is done so by the experts, you can speak to our team.

Our engineers have installed sump pumps in all kinds of properties, including domestic, commercial, and even listed buildings, so you can be assured of our ability to not only install but to also maintain any sump pump we fit in your property.

How is Sump Pump Servicing Carried Out in Dorset?

In order for us to get working on your sump pumps upkeep, we will first need to speak to you about how we can best help you. After a conversation with our team, we will agree on a time to visit that works for you, and our team can plan their inspection.

Once at your property, our engineers will look at your pump to see if they can find any sign of mechanical failure, degradation, or any signs that your pump might breakdown in the near future.

We won’t just inspect the pump itself either, our engineers will also check to see if there are any environmental factors that could have an effect on the way your pump operates. We will also check to see if the connection from your pump to the power source is still healthy, and that the connected backup battery is still ready to kick in should your property lose power.

Once all of this has been completed, our team will be ready to complete any repairs that might need doing, often there and then, leaving you with a protected basement. However, if any replacement parts need to be ordered we can speak with you at a time in the near future for us to return and get your sump pump back to full working order.

If you are interested in arranging for a sump pump service, then give us a ring on 0800 019 9949, or fill in one of our contact forms online today.
