Sump Pump Installation & Repair Services in Lexington

Central Kentucky is prone to heavy rainstorms, and many basements suffer from seasonal flooding. Water invading your basement or crawl space can cause water damage to your home and foundation, as well as mold, mildew, and even pests. If your home or basement is prone to flooding, persistent water issues, or a musty smell, installing a sump pump is the solution you need.

Fayette’s residential plumbing technicians can guide you in determining the best solution to address your needs. We offer expert sump pump installation and repair services in Lexington, Kentucky, and the surrounding areas.

How Do Sump Pumps Work?

If your basement regularly deals with an influx of excessive water, a sump pump is probably the best solution. This device is installed in the lowest part of your basement. A hole is dug through your floor and down a few feet, known as the sump pit. The bottom of the hole is then filled with gravel. Afterward, a sump basin, or sump tank, is installed in this pit to collect water.

As groundwater rises in the ground, this pit, being in the lowest part of the basement, fills up with water first. A float on the pump triggers the pump motor to activate. The water then pumps the water out of the house and either down a sewer drain, to the municipal storm drain, or out at least 15 feet safely away from the house.
