Proper Sump Pump Operation for Wisconsin Homeowners
Having a properly functioning sump pump is especially important for Wisconsin homeowners due to heavy downpours in spring and summer months and melting snow and ice in the winter. Rain and meltwater can quickly flood your basement, ruining your furniture and belongings and threatening the integrity of your home’s foundation. Our licensed and certified plumbers will ensure your home stays dry all year.
Signs you May Need to Replace a Sump Pump
When water builds up around the outside of your home, the drain tile and sump pump redirect the water away to prevent basement flooding. The last thing you want is for the pump to fail. If you believe your sump pump is no longer operating correctly, you need to call S&K Pump & Plumbing before the flooding starts.
Some of the most common reasons we are called for repairs of a sump pump include:
Pump turning on and off frequently
Long run times
Not turning on or off
Sump pump is noisy

Generators Keep Your Sump Pump Running During Extended Power Outages
In the event of a power outage, your back up battery will keep your sump pump operating properly for a few hours. If the power outage is longer, you’ll need a generator to power your most important basement appliance, and keep the flood from your door. Our plumbers have the solution to your electrical service interruption. S & K Pump and Plumbing installs generators for electrical service interruptions in your area. Just give us a call.
