Sump Pump Repair, Replacement, Installation, and Maintenance Service for the Greater Indianapolis Area
Indiana rains can often be described as down-pours that lead to flooding in basements and crawlspaces. Flooded basements can be costly to clean-up, and there is always the possibility that you will need to replace appliances, furniture, carpet, and other items in the basement. Perhaps the worst loss is the potential damage to keepsake items that can’t be replaced. Mold can also be a problem in flooded basements or crawlspaces.
A sump pump is usually installed in the basement or crawlspace where flooding is most common and collects accumulated water in a sump pit. When the water reaches a set level, it is pumped out of the pit and away from your home’s foundation.
Our trained, licensed plumbers are ready to help you with sump pump installation, repair, and maintenance.

Why can you still experience flooding even when you have a sump pump?
Battery Back-Up Sump Pump
Indiana rainstorms are often accompanied by lightning and strong winds that can cause a loss of power to your home. If that happens, your sump pump will not run, and your home can be susceptible to flooding. This problem can be avoided by investing in a battery back-up sump pump that will continue to work even when you lose power. Our plumbers are ready to help you select the right battery back-up sump pump for your home.
Sump Pump Maintenance
It’s great to have a sump pump as long as it works. If it is not properly maintained, it may not be able to do its job. The operation of your sump pump should be checked throughout the year by slowly pouring water into the sump pit until the float triggers turn on your pump. If the sump pump is working properly, it will shut off once the water drops below the shutoff level. If it has a problem, our plumbing team is skilled in sump pump repair and knowledgeable in choosing and installing a new sump pump if needed. It’s better to find out you have a problem before the rain starts.
Sump Pump Choice
A sump pump should be chosen based on the amount of water it has to handle and not on the size of your home. The power of a sump pump’s motor is more important than the size of the pump. If your pump cannot pump water fast enough to keep up with the water pouring into the pit, your basement or crawlspace can still flood. Our experienced plumbers can make recommendations on the best sump pump for your needs and give you the information you need in order to make an informed decision.
What Should You Consider When Choosing a Sump Pump?
Your Needs – You’ll need to choose the best sump pump for your needs. One of your most important decisions will be whether or not to invest in a Battery Backup Sump Pump. Well, heavy rain is often accompanied by power outages, and the standard sump pump doesn’t operate without electricity. A Battery Backup Sump Pump will continue to protect your home and belongings even when you lose power. It also is a fail-safe in case the primary pump fails.
Warranty – Also consider the equipment warranty. You’ll get a better warranty when a professional plumber installs and maintains your system. Definitely something to consider.
“Do-it-yourselfer”? – Well, this is one of those times that you should rely on an experienced, licensed plumber and not a how-to manual. You can buy the best sump pump available, but it won’t do any good if it is not installed properly. So, don’t take any chances.
Who – Your most important decision is WHO you choose to install your sump pump system. Mr. Plumber will properly install, maintain, and provide warranty coverage on your investment. Mr. Plumber – a team that stands behind their work and whose goal is your complete satisfaction!
