Due to the lack of rain in the area, sump pumps in San Diego are fairly uncommon. However, the San Diego area does get a fair share of rain during the winter months, and homes located in low-lying areas could be prone to flooding.
As a result, we do recommend installing a sump pump if you do not already have one.
We recommend having a sump pump and pit installed where water is pooling the most in your yard. Then, we will run the piping as far away from your home is possible. When possible, we run the lines close to the street. Because of their dependability, we prefer to use Zoeller sump pumps.
Sewage Ejector Sump Pumps
Because most homes in San Diego do not have basements, sewage ejectors are fairly uncommon. If you are one of the rare homeowners that does have a sewage ejector, though, we are one of the few plumbing companies that can service it if you’ve having problems.
Sometimes, sewage ejector pumps fail after several years of usage or as the result of an object stuck on the propeller. When you’re having problems with your sewage pump, you may notice that your toilet isn’t flushing properly or your shower is backing up. To avoid these problems, we recommend that you avoid putting feminine hygiene products in the toilet as they can ruin the motor.
What To Do If Your Sump Pump Isn’t Working
The very first thing you should do is check to make sure that it is plugged in. If it is plugged in, next go the the breaker box and see if the breaker is tripped. If those two issues are fine, then there could be an object stuck in the motor that froze the pump, or the pump could be shot. At this point it is best to call us to come diagnose the situation for you.
