Charleston Sump Pump Installation
Protecting Your Home from Water Damage
Flooding basements and lower levels of your home can be a nightmare. Even if the only thing on the lowest level of your home is a garage, that’s where you park your cars and they cannot be underwater when there is a torrential rainstorm.
Sometimes, minor flooding in the lower levels of your home is unavoidable, and the only way to combat that problem is to make sure that you have a sump pump installed and ready to go in the event of flooding. A sump pump is a system that pulls water out of the commonly flooded areas with a motor that is much more powerful than anything you could do on your own with a bucket. However, a sump pump is not something that should be installed without the help of a professional. At McAtee Plumbing Heating & Cooling, our Charleston sump pump specialists know how to install one in your home and ensure that it is wired correctly and will feed water to the correct place.

Why You Should Install a Sump Pump
Any time flooding occurs, your property is susceptible to water damage. Additionally, without a sump pump, the standing water makes your home more susceptible to mold and mildew growth. Installing a sump pump in Charleston will help protect you from both hazards.
Common Sump Pump Problems
Although they’re designed to have long lifespans, sometimes problems arise and you’ll need your sump pump repaired.
Common sump pump problems include:
- It fails to turn on
- It is visibly damaged
- It makes strange sounds while running
- It continuously runs and never shuts off
- It doesn’t drain the water in your basement
If you notice any of these problems, it’s important that you call us immediately to perform repairs. When we arrive at your property, we will conduct a thorough inspection and determine whether the issue can be repaired or whether a replacement is necessary.
