A sump pump is an electrical device with a motor designed to expel accumulated water in a basin. It is always located in the basement where unwanted water accumulates.

A sump pump is a crucial piece of equipment you should have in your home to remove water from your flooded basement and keep it dry. Sump pumps are often a neglected part of essential home plumbing necessary for ensuring efficient running of the home especially if your home is located in a damp area.

  1. What is the function of a sump pump?

The purpose of a sump pump is to keep water out of the basement to prevent flooding. Water may build up around the base of a house due to sloppy patios, sidewalks, or full gutters. A sump pump is used to drain the accumulated water.

A sump pump is usually installed at the lowest point in the basement for much water to accumulate to remove the water and dispel the water far away from the house.

  1. Are all sump pumps the same?

Sump pumps come in two types: submersible pumps and pedestal pumps. Pedestal sump pumps have their motors installed outside the sump while the submersible sump pumps are completely immersed underwater. Submersible sump pumps expensive and more difficult to repair while pedestal sump pumps are less costly and easier to repair.

  1. Does everyone need a sump pump?

If your home is in a wet area, you would, undoubtedly, need one. Natural groundwater, rain, and near drains of the home’s waterproofing system can cause flooding, but a sump pump will help significantly to prevent flooding. In addition, a sump pump will prevent water damage in the laundry areas, basement, and storage rooms.

  1. Can I install a sump pump myself?

For proper installation, a sump pump should be installed by a qualified plumber who has the required experience and the right tools to break through the earth and foundation and carry out sump pump installation. For sump pump repair or sump pump replacement in Calgary, contact Urban Pipings journeyman plumbers.

  1. What size of sump pump do I need?

It is indeed the horsepower that matters and not size. The right horsepower that you need will be determined by the depth of the basement, depth to the groundwater, the area of the drainage connected to the sump, and other factors. However, for most houses, 1/3 horsepower pump is the standard.

  1. How long can a sump pump last?

If well-maintained, a sump pump should last for about ten years. If your pump does not kick during heavy rain, you cannot wait to have sump pump repair or sump pump replacement. A sump pump is a device you cannot wait to repair or replace because the cost of a new sump pump is a fraction of the amount of money that will be used to deal with flood damage and repair the basement.

  1. What are the common causes of sump pump failure?

Switching problem and debris are the primary causes of a sump pump failure.

  1. How can I keep my pump well-maintained?

Have your sump pump regularly checked before you need its services. Also, ensure routine maintenance every six months. Have your sump pump checked by a professional for servicing and maintenance.

  1. Is a battery backup necessary for my sump pump?

If you live in an area that is highly susceptible to flooding or has significant rainfall and high winds, you would need a battery backup for standby power for your pump in case the power goes out, or a circuit breaker is tripped. This will help to prevent flooding.

Urban Piping Homestars

9.8 / 10 (110+ reviews)

I contacted Urban Piping via Homestars on New Year’s Day. I didn’t expect a response for a day or two after the holiday. I got a phone call that day and within two days my rusty water heater had been removed and a new one installed. The service was quick, efficient and effective. All my questions were answered politely and completely. This company clearly cares about their customers and the service they provide.
Graham responded promptly late Friday to my plea for help for a new water heater and provided a a very reasonable quote and confirmation to replace it the very next business day (Monday)! Monday saw Jordan arrive just as promptly at the appointed time. He was courteous, efficient and performed a very clean replacement installation of the new one. Very happy!
Just had Urban Piping out to install 2 x 50 gal hot water tanks. Jordan did a great job, was super helpful and answered all my questions friendly and professorial. It's not the first time I have used them and it wont be the last. Thank you!
We have called Urban Piping on two occasions for our rental property. The first time we had a leaky water tank which they quickly diagnosed and replaced. Their price was very reasonable and their service was prompt. The second time we had water coming into the basement. I called them and they came over the next day. They were able to run their equipment to clear debris out of the pipes going to the street and the problem was solved. It took about an hour, the temperatures were -13C so I was worried that a pipe had burst. They let me know how much they were going to charge so there were no surprises. We were very happy with the service and price. Thanks Jordan!
I have to say Urban Piping were careful considerate and their plumber was pleasant, courteous, and did a professional job.I thought a $100 service call fee was reasonable
Really happy with Urban Piping. Our hot water tank broke down on a Sunday, and I had a call back within 20 minutes. I really appreciate their recommendations and options for me to save some cost. They were out the next day and the install was quick and clean. Great experience.
First rate service for a a somewhat tricky drain/sink replacement. Jordan was competent, hardworking and pleasant, and he charged a reasonable rate.
Excellent job, first class results. Dedicated workers, efficient and timely. I am thrilled now and am sure will be happy with the work they have done in years to come
These guys were exceptional. Had a hot water tank leak Friday in the middle of the night. They were there right away with a tank replacement. Jordan was professional, clean and quick. The owner Graham was incredible and walked me through the whole process. Could not be happier. Will recommend over and over again.
Graham and his team really know every aspect of what needs to be done. The finished job is amazing- Thank you Urban Piping
Graham was honest, thorough, and friendly. He recommended only the services that were needed and started with the simplest approaches first.
We are super happy about the service we got from Urban Piping ! Jordan went above and beyond in helping us! He installed a new toilet , and kitchen faucet and helped out out with a couple small problems as well. I can't say enough about what great service we received. Graham also arranged for us to have some drywall fixed also, which was a great plus ! Thanks again
Urban Piping did a fantastic job in changing a water valve and piping in the kitchen sink.Thanks again for doing a great job!

Very professional service. Went above and beyond compared to other plumbers I have used. Responded quickly including coming right back when we noticed something needed tweaking.
Recently Urban Piping did a drain cleaning at my residence in Mckenzie Towne because our sinks and showers were not draining properly. They were prompt, efficient, the price was right....and the problem was solved. Well Done.
Called Urban Piping at 7:30 am and Graham was here by 12:45. The job was done quickly and professionally. Would definitely use this company again.
The poly B replacement they did turned out amazing. It was exactly as quoted and you couldn’t tell where they opened up the walls and ceiling. He was punctual, friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgeable! If you need an amazing plumber call urban piping Ltd. highly recommended
Graham and the rest of the team at urban piping we’re professional and efficient with their work on my home. Will be highly recommending them to all my friends and keeping them in mind for future jobs. Thank you !
Jordan replaced the hot water tank for us. Really nice guy, great job done. A good company to work with. Keep up the good work.
Jordan arrived punctual, and completed the job to our satisfaction in the time allotted. Both Jordan and Graham were friendly and courteous. Job site was left clean and tidy after old tanks removed. They were recommended to us by a friend, and I would certainly recommend them to our friends.
Graham from Urban Piping arrived on time and had everything ready to go. He gave me a quote for $700 to do a Garburator in my kitchen. He inspected my existing plumbing under my sink and then explained to me the process and immediately went to work. Not only does the garburator work great but now the plumbing under my sink is very clean and organized. The invoice on my bill was BELOW the quote. I didn't think that was possible but I was extremely happy. I HIGHLY recommend having the guys at Urban Piping as they did the job right the first time. I will definitely be using them again when I do my basement renovation!
Graham does an amazing job very well done. Love these guys
Such good response time and efficiency. Best prices ive seen thus far
these guys are the best company ive ever dealt with. truly blown away by Graham and the boys!
loved dealing with these guys for a wide variety of plumbing throughout the years. best services and price.
Graham and Jordan do an amazing job! so efficient and clean i was truly impressed with the level of professionalism and quality done from urban piping
Urban Piping did an outstanding job replacing the poly-b throughout our house, replacing toilets and flushing drain lines. We were impressed with the customer service, prompt response time and attention to detail through the estimate process. Going through the findings, I learned a lot about the house because Graham took the time to show and explain things to me, even well outside the scope of work. These guys do the entire job, including the refinishing work to walls, ceilings, etc so my job was easier, I didn't have to research and hire separate contractors for anything! Graham also helped us to make smart decisions about specific pieces of work to stay in budget.When it came time for work to begin, he walked me through what to expect through to completion. Attention to detail is beyond thorough with this crew! Everything turned out exactly as we expected and on budget, and the quality of the finishing work is so good that my family can't tell where the walls were opened up! They ran air scrubbers and took great care to protect the house from damage or traveling mess; it was cleaner when they left than it was before they started! Thanks for taking such great care of us through this project, guys!
Jordan from Urban Piping came over to do a complete drain cleaning service to our home because we were having problems with the bathroom sinks and drains draining slowly. He was in time, very friendly and cleaned every drain in our home. He also found that there was a problem with a seal in our master bathtub and fixed that for us too. Quick, easy, and great price on the service. Good job guys.
Very good on the plumbing and pipe replacement side of things. Ok on the drywall work.
Graham and his team were fantastic! His calm demeanor coupled with his excellent service made our Poly-B replacement as stress-free as possible. The attention to detail is unsurpassed. He reorganized our shut-off valves to make them more accessible, brought the plumbing up to the current code, totally protected our home and furnishings, and left the home in almost spotless condition. Having the big air scrubbers constantly on to remove the dust, the plastic walls cordoning off areas and the great clean-up crew made coming back home a great experience. On time and on budget too!!! I'd recommend Urban Piping to everyone for Poly-B remediation.
