Sump Pump vs Backup Sump Pump 
1-800-Plumber +Air of Portland 

If you're like most people, you probably don't think about your sump pump until there's a problem. And by then, it's often too late. A backup sump pump can prevent water damage in your home by automatically pumping out water that accumulates in the sump pit. If you live in a house with a basement, then you know that water can be a big problem. One way to prevent water damage is to install a backup sump pump.

Water damage is one of the most common and costly problems facing homeowners today. Basements are particularly susceptible to flooding, due to their location below ground level. A backup sump pump can help to prevent water damage in your home by automatically pumping out water that accumulates in the sump pit.

What is a sump pump?

A sump pump is a device that is installed in the basement or crawlspace of a home. Its purpose is to pump water out of the home and away from the foundation to prevent flooding and water damage. Sump pumps are normally used in homes that are located in areas that are prone to flooding or have high water tables.

How does a sump pump work?

When water enters the sump pit, the float switch activates the pump. The pump then pumps the water out of the pit and away from the foundation.

What is a backup sump pump?

A backup sump pump is a second sump pump that is installed in case the primary pump fails. It can be activated automatically or manually, depending on the type of system.

What are the benefits of a backup sump pump?

A backup sump pump offers peace of mind in knowing that your home is protected from water damage in case of a power outage or primary pump failure. It can also save you money on repairs and damages that can occur from water damage.

How do I choose the right backup sump pump for my home?

There are a few factors to consider when choosing a backup sump pump, such as the size of your home, the amount of water that needs to be pumped, and your budget. 1-800-Plumber +Air of Portland can help you find the perfect pump for your needs. We'll work with you to find a pump that meets your needs and budget, and we'll install it for you. Contact us today to learn more about our backup sump pump services.

Willie W.

First plumber we called wanted $3500.00 to replace everything. Emanuel came out and suggested we change one part and less than $300.00 later we was up and running again. From Mark, to Taylor, and then on to Emanuel the whole experience was professional and I will be a customer for life. Hopefully not often though. Great working with you guys!.

Satisfied Customer

My daughter Natalie Permenter actually ordered the service. I'm at her house during the day to keep my grandson. I was very impressed by Emanuel, the plumber that cam. He was very professional and seemed to really care about his clients. Natalie tells me the lady in the office also showed professionalism and a genuine desire to help. Emanuel was disappointed that he couldn't get the job done on day one; but promised to come back the next day. True to his word he was here bright and early. I am so impressed to finally find a company that really cares about the consumer; not just the dollar.
