Are you a homeowner or property owner in Pittsburgh? This article might help you save thousands of dollars in water damages. According to the American Society of Home Inspectors, below-ground wetness affects more than 60 percent of American homes. If you want to protect yourself against a flooded basement and moisture that can damage your property’s foundation, then consider investing in a sump pump installation in Pittsburgh by the experts at Mr. Rooter.
A sump pump is a common fixture that is designed to keep moisture out of a basement or crawl space. They are especially common in low-lying areas that are under the water bed, areas prone to flooding, or areas where snow melts rapidly. In a place like Pittsburgh, you are going to want to make sure that your sump pump is installed and working correctly! Mr. Rooter has the expert plumbers in Pittsburgh to help.
Mr. Rooter is excited to be a leading provider of affordable and reliable sump pump installation services. As mentioned earlier, sump pumps are used to filter out unwanted water and moisture from the lowest levels of your property. A sump pump is generally installed in a sump pit. As the pit fills with water, the pump turns on and drains the water away from your foundation.
There are two main types of sump pumps available: a submersible and the pedestal pump. The difference lies in the pump’s relation to the water. A submersible pump can rest inside the water as it is waterproof. Pedestal pumps look like a stick with a fat head and the pump is held outside of the water. Pedestal pumps are generally less expensive, but also much louder than submersible pumps.
A sump pump keeps your basement healthy and safe by preventing bacteria, mildew, and mold from forming. For the most part, these pumps handle the work on their own and require very little attention and maintenance. However, there will come a time when your sump pump malfunctions and you may need a sump pump repair.
Most sump pumps come with alarms that will alert you if there is something wrong. Still, you should perform manual checks once every several months to ensure that everything is working. Periodically pour a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump starts. If it turns out the pump is not working, then call your local plumbers at Mr. Rooter and ask about a sump pump repair in Pittsburgh.
Sump pumps are fairly simple in terms of mechanics and can last a long time on their own, but just like anything, they have a lifespan. A sump pump replacement is generally due once every 10 years but that is just a rule of thumb. Your pump may last longer or shorter depending on how frequently it is used, the quality of the pump, the electrical source, and more. If your sump pump has reached the point of no return, give Mr. Rooter a call and ask about our promotions on a sump pump replacement in Pittsburgh.

Chris was professional, friendly, and informative. He arrived on time, and was able to diagnose our problem. We discussed our various options, and then Chris proceeded to get the job done. Our plumbing issue is now in better shape than it was when it was first installed as new. We would not hesitate to recommend Chris, and will call him again if the need arises.
My first point of contact after I set up my appointment was Nicki (Nikki), she was VERY kind and professional on the phone. She provided reassurance in my time of plumbing panic letting me know that everything was going to be fine and she’s here to help! Then Angelo arrived. Prior to his arrival I received texts and live gps to review how far he was I LOVED that! Angelo was SO respect of my house, he was VERY professional, quick and kind. He was upfront about costs and what he would complete for me! Pricing was fair and affordable. I had this SAME problem previously, went to a different company (started with a G and rhymes with peace) and they were “cheaper” but didn’t do the best job. They tried to tell me that to fix it, the price would be 5K - 10K (hard eye roll). Nevertheless, this is an awesome company!! If you found Mr. Rooter, just got with them!! I promise you, you won’t regret it!
I'm very impressed with Mr. Rooter. I was smelling a small amount of gas randomly throughout my kitchen area. The office answered my call and said they would put me on the schedule for the same day and someone would call later with a specific time. The office called back a few hours later and said a technician would be there within the hour. The technician they sent was named Ryan and he could not have been any better. Friendly from the moment I opened the door and informative throughout the process. He thoroughly tested the whole area for gas and finally determined the leak was coming from a connection point at the wall. He discussed all of my options and pricing before he did any of the work. In the end, he corrected the leak and gave me further quotes for work we may want to consider in the future. Ryan was not pushy in any way and I agreed with his recommendations during the repair. He also worked until very late in the evening to make sure it was done right. Much appreciated and I will definitely use Mr. Rooter for my future plumbing needs.
