St. Paul Sump Pump Installers
Protect Your Basement from Flooding with a Sump Pump
A sump pump is a special device that pushes water away from your foundation and out of your basement to prevent damage, mold, and moisture. If you have a sub-level, we recommend installing one of these helpful appliances.
Sump pumps are placed inside a sump pit, which is normally located in the lowest area of your basement or crawl space. This pit collects groundwater near your foundation. When triggered by a float switch, the sump pump will route all of this water to your main plumbing system and out of your home. Add a sump pump to your basement for added protection for your home and possessions.
Common Sump Pump Problems
If you are having issues with your sump pump, we can offer long-term solutions that add value to your home and provide peace of mind. You should have confidence that your sump pump is working efficiently. We recommend regular maintenance and testing before a large downpour to ensure that your appliance is in top condition when it is needed the most. You can give your sump pump a test run by dumping a bucket of water into the sump pit.
Call us for assistance if:
- Your sump pump is not working properly
- Your float switch is not triggering the sump pump
- There is water leaking into your basement
- Your sump pump was installed incorrectly
- You believe you needed a larger or smaller sump pump
- The discharge lines are frozen or clogged
How Often Do Sump Pumps Need to Be Replaced?
Typically, sump pumps should be replaced every five years or so, depending on how often it is used and how well it has been maintained. If you can’t remember the last time your sump pump was replaced, it’s safe to assume you probably need a new one, or at the very least, you should have it inspected and cleaned. Don’t put off servicing your sump pump, or you could risk a very expensive flood when you need your sump pump most.

Some of the frequently asked questions about sump pumps in the Twin Cities include:
Exactly what is a sump pump and how does it work?
A sump pump is one of the hardest working pieces of home-protection equipment you’ll ever own. When basement water reaches a certain level, the sump pump turns on. A motor powers the pump and sends the water into a discharge pipe and away from your home’s foundation. The pipes have a valve to prevent water from backflowing into your basement.
How long do sump pumps last on average?
Without maintenance, sump pumps often need replacement after 5 years. With annual maintenance, your sump pump can last 7-10 years. Yearly sump pump maintenance is well worth the investment; water damage can be expensive, unhealthy, and always inconvenient.
What are signs I need repair or a new sump pump?
If your sump pump is old, you may want to consider replacement rather than risk a plumbing emergency.
Other signs you need a new sump pump include:
- Excess noise
- Frequent clogs
- Keeps losing power
- Runs too much (sump pump “overdrive”)
What is the best type of sump pump?
There are two main types of sump pumps: pedestal and submersible. We can repair either type, but if you’re replacing your sump pump, submersible sump pumps are quieter and safer if you have small children or pets. Pedestal sump pumps are noisier and their motors are usually not waterproof.
Sump pump considerations include:
- Accessories – You’ll need a basin and cover, discharge hose, etc.
- Alarm – The sump pump sounds an alert to let you know there’s water accumulation. (“Smart” sump pumps can send you a text.)
- Core material – Sump pump materials have different advantages and include high-grade plastics, stainless steel, and heavy cast iron.
- Horsepower – 1/3hp is fine if you have low water accumulation; 1hp is best for flooding.
- No-screen intake – You must have a screen to filter out water debris, but you have to maintain/clean it. No-screen intakes process the dirt/debris and send it outside with the water.
- Power – You’ll want electric power/battery backup.
- Switch – Choose from manual/digital.
