Sump Pump Installation and Repairs
Why is a Sump Pump Important?
Sump pumps are important because they can help prevent flooding in your basement or crawl space. They work by pumping water that collects in the sump pit or basin outside, which is the lowest point in your home.
This water can come from a variety of sources, such as rain, snowmelt, or even groundwater. Sump pumps are especially important in areas that are prone to flooding. In Kansas City, for example, there is a high risk of flooding due to the city's location on the Missouri River.
A sump pump can help protect your home from flooding and the associated damage, such as water damage to your belongings, mold growth, and structural damage.
If you live in an area that is prone to flooding, or if you have a basement or crawl space, you should consider having a sump pump installed. It is a relatively inexpensive investment that can save you a lot of money and headaches in the long run.

Some Fun Facts.
- The cost of water damage can be staggering. According to the Insurance Information Institute, the average cost of a water damage claim in 2022 was $10,098. This is up from $9,734 in 2021.
- Mold can cause serious health problems. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that mold exposure can cause respiratory problems, allergies, and even asthma attacks.
- A malfunctioning sump pump can lead to structural damage. If water is allowed to pool around your foundation, it can cause the foundation to crack and shift. This can lead to costly repairs and even the need to move out of your home.

Sump Pump Replacement
If your sump pump is starting to show its age or has been acting up, it may be time for a replacement. Sump pumps can last for many years without needing major repairs, but if yours is not performing as well as it used to, it may be time to invest in a new one.
There are a few signs that can indicate that your sump pump is nearing the end of its life:
- It's running more often than it used to.
- The pump is not pumping as much water as it used to.
- Making strange noises.
- Your pump is leaking.
If you notice any of these signs, it is a good idea to have your sump pump inspected by a professional. We are able to assess the condition of the pump and recommend whether or not it needs to be replaced.
