Sump Pump Services
A sump pump installation is performed at the lowest point of your home—the spot where all of the water will flow naturally thanks to gravity. When water comes over the pump, it activates and pumps out the water into a drain. The sump pump keeps the water at bay so that your basement and crawlspace don’t collect all the water. Types of sump pumps you can install include:
- Pedestal Sump Pumps
- Submersible Sump Pumps
Kennihan Plumbing & Heating, Inc. plumbers are trained to perform all manner of sump pump repairs, installations, replacements, and maintenance. The worst time for your sump pump to stop working would be right before you need it, but you can alleviate that fear when you schedule regular sump pump maintenance.
Drainage Systems in Butler County
Sump pumps can use a little help from drainage systems. One example is that of filter drains, also known as the French drain. These drains consist of a trench filled with gravel and a perforated pipe, and they’re dug around the perimeter of your home. Surface and ground water will be drained away as it goes over.
For basements, it also helps to have a basement drain installed and serviced if there isn’t one already. This will help alleviate some of the burden from your sump pump in the event of an emergency.
Slab Leak Detection
Aside from weather, various plumbing issues can create leaks and substantial water damage inside your Butler County home. One possibility is that of slab leaks. These leaks are like ordinary pipe leaks, except that they form beneath the foundation of your home. They can push up on the concrete slabs and cause damage, including flooding. Getting slab leak repair as soon as you can is crucial to protecting your home.
Slab leak detection is the first step in having an expert slab leak repair performed, and it often takes a professional to see the signs in its early stages. For that, you can count on the master plumbers at Kennihan Plumbing & Heating, Inc. to find the leaks and have them dealt with before substantial damage can occur to your home.
