Sump Pumps

We Help Sump Pumps Do Their Job

Like your closets and attic, your basement is a place to store some of your most important possessions. Though these items may be out of sight most of the time, they’re still valuable, and if some of them were ruined, finding a replacement would be impossible.

Your sump pump protects these objects, and your basement itself, from floods. If your sump pump fails to do its job during the next heavy rainstorm, you could end up with an unwanted pool in your cellar.

Here at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, located in West Chester, it’s our job to make sure that doesn’t happen. We can perform an inspection to see if your sump pump is ready to handle whatever Mother Nature throws at it. If our inspection finds any need for maintenance, we’ll make the needed repairs. Or, you may decide it’s time for the installation of an upgrade as a replacement.

But if a flooded basement has happened already, we can minimize the damage and make the repairs necessary to make sure it won’t happen again during the next torrential downpour. No matter what your home’s plumbing needs, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing has the areas of West Chester, Chester County, and Delaware County, PA covered, with toilet repair, tub and shower replacements, well pump installation, and emergency plumbing service.

But for now, let’s get back to sump pumps.

Emergency Sump Pump RepairA sump pump installed in the basement of a home

Sump pump failures can lead to damage that costs thousands of dollars to repair. Besides the flood, there’s also the damage to the stuff you had stored there. Our plumbers are on-call for emergencies like this, and you can schedule an emergency appointment when you need us most.

Sump Pump Inspections and Maintenance

Unless your sump pump is brand new, there’s a chance that it could benefit from some kind of repair. Like all devices, sump pumps are subject to wear and tear, and only an expert can determine whether this seemingly minor damage could affect the sump pump’s performance.

The best way to get the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have a fully functioning sump pump is with annual inspections. We perform them as part of our protection plans, which you can sign up for to get the most out of our plumbing services.

Sump Pump Replacement

Getting a text message from your sump pump might sound like science fiction, but we live in an age full of technological wonders. If it’s time for a replacement sump pump and you opt for one of our top-of-the-line models, the sump pump can use its built-in Wi-Fi to send an alert to your phone if there’s a problem. These upgrades also feature long-lasting battery backups. But if this all sounds a bit too advanced for you, we still install traditional replacement sump pumps as well.

Whatever you need when it comes to your home’s plumbing, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing is there to help homeowners in the West Chester, Chester County, and Delaware County, PA.
