Toronto Installation of Sump Pump & Sewage
Sump Pump Installation & Basement Waterproofing
Basement flooding in Toronto is more common than you might think. New homeowners, often don’t realize how quickly groundwater levels can rise in a downpour. RES Plumbing do know. We are also committed to keeping Toronto homes dryer. We do this by providing basement sump pump installations which work automatically to resolve excess water 24/7.
What is a Sump Pump Installation?
RES Plumbing are specialist residential and commercial plumbers. When home waterproofing concerns manifest, we address these by carrying out sump pump installations in basement areas and crawlspaces.
A sump pump installation is comprised of three key components. First, a sump pit is dug into the ground beneath a crawlspace or basement. Into this, a float switch activated centrifugal motor pump is installed. Once connected to mains power and for-purpose drainage outlets, a sump pump will activate whenever groundwater levels rise and activate automatic flotation switches.
Sump Pump Pit Installation
A sump pump works by sitting below ground level in a sump pit. Pumps then automatically discharge rising groundwater into drainage lines, before water rises to basement floor level.
Building regulations in Toronto stipulate that any new home in a high water table area must be constructed with a dedicated sump pit. However, where a sump pit isn’t present, we can excavate, line, and seal pits, ready for pump placement. As home waterproofing experts, we can identify optimal places to site sump pits. We can also carry out a sump pit installation while being mindful of future basement remodeling plans.
How Do Sump Pumps Protect During Power Outages?
At RES Plumbing, we are more than familiar with the perils of home power outages. This is why with every new sump pump installation, we also install reliable backup battery units. During power outages, sump pumps we install automatically start drawing on backup power supplies. Batteries themselves last for 12 – 24-hours. Basements, therefore, stay dry, even during severe storms and power outages.
