Sump Pump services in Snohomish, WA
Sump pumps are valuable plumbing installations that protect against flooding. The rainwater collects in the sump pump basin and is piped to storm sewers or to a discharge point at least six feet away from the home. Sump pumps are necessary for properties where water collects in the crawl space of the building.
If your sump pump is not performing we can perform an inspection and repair to resolve the issue.
Sump Pump Isn’t Draining
The sump pump must pump away from the property. Once the basin overflows, the sump pump won’t manage rain water properly and flooding around the basement and foundation can occur. Standing or puddling water leads to bacterial growth and mold. During an inspection our technicians test for proper drainage and pump operation.

To avoid an overflow we test the power supply and floats to identify electrical issues and correct problems before flooding occurs. An electrical short is a common problem for older sump pumps.
