Santa Maria Pump Plumbing
Reliable Services for All Residential Pumps
There are several types of pumps used in residential plumbing, from sump pumps to sewage pumps. Depending on your unique needs, installing any one of these in your home can make for a more efficient plumbing system.
At Jack's All-American Plumbing, we are knowledgeable on all types of residential pumps. Below are some of the options you have and their uses:
- Sump pumps- If you live in a low-lying area or have a basement, a sump pump can help protect your home from water damage caused by rain floods or plumbing disasters such as a pipe burst.
- Sewage pumps or sewer ejector pumps- If your laundry area is located in your basement, a sewage pump can help move wastewater easily from the sewage basin up to the main sewer line.
Other pumps include lawn sprinkler pumps, swimming pool pumps, and more. If you're interested in installing one for your home or you need service for an existing one, contact our professional plumbers in Santa Maria at (805) 367-5027.
Importance of Sump Pumps & Sewer Ejector Pumps
Sewer lines run underneath your home and out toward the street. Through the upper stories of your home, water flows with the pull of gravity down into these lines. The problem with basement plumbing systems is that the water must fight against the pull of gravity to join your main sewer line.
Sump pumps and sewer ejector pumps facilitate this movement, pushing water up against gravity from your basement so it can pour into your main sewer line and flow away from your home.
Troubleshooting Your Sewage Ejector Pumps
Extra water flow can cause stress on your pumps, especially after heavy rains. You might experience a backup in your sewer line if your pump stops working efficiently or is overwhelmed by a sudden flood or heavy water use.
Signs that your pumps are struggling include:
- Sewer smell in the home
- Slow draining sinks and showers
- Pump operating loudly
- Alarms sounding on your pumps
Most pumps are designed to alert you to a problem before they become catastrophic. If the alarm on your pump has never gone off before, you might be confused the first time you hear it. Sometimes, the alarm sounds if the pump loses power. In this case, reconnect the pump or flip the breaker to get the pump working again.
The pump alarm will go off if the whole system has failed to respond to a sudden increase of water. Sometimes, this happens a little too late, and you don't hear the alarm until the basement has flooded.
We work to prevent this catastrophic occurrence by offering regular pump inspections to make sure your pump is ready to protect your home. Call Jack's All-American Plumbing at (805) 367-5027 for reliable pump plumbing in Santa Maria!
