Ottawa can be a damp place to live at the best of times. In the summer, torrential rains sometimes cause flooding in our many river systems. In winter, Ottawa homeowners are given a brief break when all that water turns to snow.
But in the spring, when our usual mountain-high snowbanks melt, the problem becomes even worse. Because the spring thaw often causes enormous amounts of water to rush into the basements of Ottawa homeowners, many Ottawans have sump pumps installed.
Sump Pump Repair and Replacement
If your sump pump has stopped working, you’ve probably noticed an increased sense of dampness in your basement. If it has broken down during a particularly wet season, there may be flooding.
DRAINPRO’s Ottawa plumbers are experienced in sump pump repair and replacement. We offer same-day service for many plumbing jobs, and our trucks are spread out across the entirety of the greater Ottawa area. That means we can get to you faster than any other Ottawa plumber.
Note: if the flooding has risen high enough to come into contact with an electrical socket or baseboard heater, do not enter the water. For flooding this severe, we offer 24/7 emergency plumbing services.
Sump Pump Inspection
Sump pumps are a crucial component of a home. Because of this, we recommend that they are inspected regularly (at least once a year) to ensure that they are functioning well.
DRAINPRO’s technicians are able to inspect your sump pump and give you a clear idea of the likelihood that it will need service in the near future. We can also recommend maintenance or, if the pump is not able to handle its current load, can help you pick a new sump pump.
