Are you a homeowner or property owner in Pittsburgh? This article might help you save thousands of dollars in water damages.

Sump Pump Installations Made Easy and Affordable!

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.

Sump Pump Repair in Pittsburgh, PA

Have A Malfunctioning Sump Pump? Sump Pump Repair Services Available!

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.

Replace Your Sump Pump at the End of Its Lifecycle

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.

We had a sewer backup in the basement after a heavy rain. Mr Rooter responded very quickly: they had a plumber here in a hour to assess, then a whole crew to do the emergency repair. The emergency was resolved and plumbing was restored by 5PM. It was a huge relief!

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.

Brandon is a true professional in every way from first contact regarding the job right up to the end. Yes, I paid more for Mr. Rooters' service but keeping my tenants happy with the least amount of disruption is always my priority so the extra expense was worth a lot less headaches. I will definitely use their service in the future and will always ask for Brandon to be my choice of techs.
