Sump Pumps and Sewage Pumps

Water flows downhill. This is a law we’re all familiar with. But sometimes, it needs to flow uphill. That’s where pumps come in.

Sump pumps and sewage pumps are ways of defying the laws of physics. If your home is in a very wet area, sump pumps are an absolute necessity. Ottawa, especially in the springtime, happens to get quite wet, and many older homes are not adequately protected from water seepage.

Both sump pumps and sewage pumps are complex pieces of equipment. And they generally require the help of a licensed plumber. DRAINPRO is licensed to install sump pumps and sewage pumps.

Installation of Sump Pumps

Sump pumps are complex machines to install. They require the drilling of a basement hole, and connecting that hole to a weeping tile located on the outside of the foundation.

However, many homes already have systems in place to protect the basement from flooding. In such cases, sump pumps are attached to those existing systems.

The main components of the sump pump system are the pump itself and the discharge pipe of the pump.

DRAINPRO’s Ottawa plumbers are able to install each element of the sump pump system quickly and effectively.

Plus, all of our work is guaranteed for 1 year, so you can count on our workmanship.

Installation of Sewage Pumps

Sewage pumps require the installation of a special tank that collects sewage material, as well as a pumping system to pump it into the sewage line.

Because the system must be hooked up to the city sewage line, the installation requires a licensed plumber, like DRAINPRO, in order to avoid hefty fines from the City.
