Sump pump installation is required for basements in many areas across the GTA, including Toronto, Mississauga, and Oakville. A sump pump protects your basement from flooding in case of heavy rain, intensive snow meltdown, or poor drainage. It is a device located at the lowest point in your basement that sucks the water out and is a secondary defensive waterproofing measure. Over the last 20 years, Water Guard Plumbing has been installing, testing, and repairing sump pumps across the region, guaranteeing 100% functionality and customer satisfaction.

What is a Sump Pump?
Sump pumps come in various shapes, sizes, and functionalities, but their primary purpose is the same: to drive water away from your residential or commercial property. Some pumps require more horsepower to drive water further, ranging from 10ft, to 40ft, to even 100ft away. The standard horsepower for a sump pump is 0.5 horsepower, but many homeowners and commercial owners typically prefer to pay a little more for a 1 horsepower sump pump. It is important to assess your needs properly with a professional plumbing contractor, who will do the appropriate testing to make sure that you make the right decision for your situation.
It is also important to maintain your sump pump over time. Debris such as rocks and pebbles, and electrical malfunctions are common problems that should be addressed as soon as possible. Contact a professional plumber at Water Guard Plumbing for a thorough inspection.

Sump Pump FAQs
It is not recommended to install a sump pump yourself, because it is necessary to dig a trench and lay pipes before you install a sump pump.
Yes, you can. A retrofit system is a good option. Professional plumber will have to make a 30inch pit in the concrete of the perimeter basement to fit the system.
First, you need to remove the old pump. Make sure the new pump sits leveled in the pit. Connect the discharge line and turn on the electricity.
