Sump Pumps in Rancho Cucamonga, CA by Allstar Home Services
Allstar Home Services provides water damage restoration to homes to help them recover from the numerous ways that flooding can affect a building. But we also offer an option to help reduce the damage that water can cause in the first place: a sump pump. A sump pump is an appliance that removes excess water from the lowest part of a home. In most cases in Southern California, where residential basements are rare, this low region is a crawlspace. Sump pumps are also useful for dealing with smaller accumulations of water that might lead to high moisture levels in a house.
You cannot simply go to a store, purchase a sump pump, and install it yourself. There’s too much specialized work involved. It takes skilled plumbers to take care of all the jobs related to a sump pump, and our plumbers are ready to tackle any of them. If you have a flooding emergency, you can count on us to come to your assistance in Rancho Cucamonga, CA 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Why Consider a Sump Pump Installation
Flooding from heavy rains is a possibility even in dry parts of the country. But the principle reason to have a sump pump installed in Southern California is to defend against major plumbing accidents that can lead to water gushing through a house. A sump pump will automatically help “bail out” your home by removing the water in the lowest parts, such as the crawlspace, and sending it straight to the wastewater system.
A sump pump is helpful for less catastrophic events as well. If you live in a place where a high water table leads to moisture buildup in the lowest parts of your home, a sump pump makes for a great defense. This will help prevent humidity in your home and the development of wood rot, molds, and mildew.
A sump pump system consists of the pump itself and a hole excavated in a location where water is likely to gather (this is known as the sump). The pump either sits above the sump and draws the water out through pipes (a pedestal sump pump), or else it is set down within the sump and pushes the water out (a submersible sump pump). A professional installer can help you make the choice for the sump pump that will suit your home’s needs.
