Sump & Sewage Ejection Pumps

Has Your Basement (Or Crawlspace) Flooded?

It’s the worst feeling, to step down into your basement and feel the “squish” between your toes. If your basement is finished, it is a heart-sickening feeling. Sump pumps fail for many reasons – from power outages to age and even lack of use. A good, hardy, professional-grade sump pump is a must and should be replaced (at a minimum) every three to five years to avoid the “squishy” experiences. Innovative Plumbing Solutions can replace these for you.

Is your sump pump constantly running?

This is because it’s on its last leg. Sump Pumps don’t like to run dry. If it is running when there is no water in the sump pump pit, this is usually associated with a “switching” problem. Depending on your sump pump, the switch can either be repaired, adjusted, or replaced. The sump pump experts at Innovative Plumbing Solutions can evaluate the plumbing problem and make sure that your sump pump is working properly.

Would you like the added security of a backup system?

Let’s face it, how many times do we go into our basement and check our sump pumps? Sump pumps by nature, fail at the worst time. A flooded basement or crawlspace can cause thousands of dollars of damage. Big screen TVs can be replaced. Floating family heirlooms, not so easily. There are different types and styles of backups to choose from, such as battery backups, AC/DC backups, all-in-one sump pump systems and water-powered backups. Innovative Plumbing Solutions can help you determine what the right system is for your home. Give yourself that added security and peace of mind by protecting your home and family possessions with a professionally installed backup sump pump system for less than you think.

Is your basement bathroom not draining properly?

Most basement bathrooms have a sewage ejector (aka “lift station). Basement bathrooms are lower than the house main sewer line. A sewage ejector is used to “lift” the basement bathroom water and waste up into the house main sewer line to flow out into city sewer system or septic tank. If the sewage ejector is not working properly, the basement bathroom toilet, sink or shower will not drain properly, if at all. An inspection of the ejector by Innovative Plumbing Solutions will reveal the problem. It’s a yucky job, but somebody’s gotta do it!

Is your sewage ejector constantly running?

Similar to a sump pump (see above), sewage ejectors don’t like to run dry. If it is running when there is no water in the ejector pit, this is usually associated with a “switching” problem. Depending on your sewage ejector, the switch can either be repaired, adjusted or replaced. The sewage ejector experts at Innovative Plumbing Solutions can evaluate the problem and make sure that your ejector is ejecting the way it should.

Is there a strong smell of sewage coming from your sewage ejectors?

This is not a pleasant smell, we know, but easily remedied. It could either be that the pit has a vent problem or the sewage ejector pit seal has decayed or has been breached. All of which Innovative Plumbing Solutions can assess and provide the right solution.
