Sump Pumps & Ejector Pumps

In the Indianapolis area, basement flooding is a concern for many homeowners. Even a light spring shower can flood your basement, so you need a complete solution that ensures when the water levels rise, your boxes and belongings don’t. There is no better solution than a sump pump system, and the professional plumbing specialists at Chapman Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing stand ready to help you get the Indianapolis sump pump service that you need!

In the event of flooding, a sump pump is triggered by a float switch. It will go off when a certain amount of water accumulates in the sump pit. The unit then pumps the water away from the home to the municipal storm drain or into the nearest retention pond. We recommend sump pumps to all Indianapolis homeowners for home protection and peace of mind.

Our certified and licensed plumbers have proudly served Indianapolis, Lebanon, and Fishers areas for years. We have the knowledge and skills – as well as the dedication to superior service – that you look for in a trustworthy local contractor. Whether you’re looking for sump pump repair service, installation, or even routine inspections, we’re the experts you can always trust.

And if you’re considering a bathroom remodel and/or finished basement project, it is important to take into account more than just the look and selection of plumbing fixtures. For instance, you will probably need an ejector pump to route wastewater to an overhead sewer. And you will most definitely want to avoid the discomfort that comes from having a damp, leaky basement.

At Chapman Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we can help with these scenarios and many more by installing, servicing and maintaining a wide variety of sump pumps and ejector pumps.

We Install Repair, and Maintain Many Quality Brands of Sump Pumps and Ejector Pumps in the Indianapolis, IN Area

At Chapman Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we advise our customers of just how important a sump pump is for any home with a basement. It serves as a critical piece of plumbing equipment, standing by, ready to pump excess water out of a basement — ideally into a storm drain. Sump pumps are available as submersible or pedestal units.

Sump pumps are typically hard-wired into your home’s electrical system, although some units also have a battery backup. Since storms that cause flooding often knock out the power to your home as well, a battery-backup-pump or water-pressure powered unit is the safer option to avoid flooding in your basement due to power outage and storm runoff.

At Chapman, we offer the following sump pump services:

  • Sump pump installation
  • Sump pump replacement
  • Sump pump repair
  • Sump pump maintenance

Do I Need a Sump Pump?

While any home can benefit from the addition of a sump pump, you stand to benefit the most if any of the following applies:

  • You live in a wet climate: Here in Indianapolis, summers are humid and damp, and winters deliver moderate snowfall. With an average of over 42 inches of rain and 26 inches of snow per season, there are plenty of opportunities for flooding.
  • Your Indianapolis home is built on a flood-prone plot: Low-lying properties with poor drainage or improper soil grading are most likely to end up with a flooded basement. Common causes include torrential downpours, spring runoff, and melting snow.
  • Your basement has flooded before: There’s no need to relive the experience of restoring a flooded basement—simply install a sump pump to prevent rising water levels in the future. Even if you merely struggle with high humidity or mold growth in the basement or crawl space, a sump pump can help.
  • You have a finished basement: While flooding is never good, it’s particularly destructive and expensive to repair if you have a finished basement. Even in an unfinished space, any belongings stored in cardboard boxes are at risk of being destroyed if your basement floods. In this way, you can think of a sump pump as an added layer of flood insurance.

While new sump pump installation or replacement is an important first step, maintenance is needed to ensure the sump pump is working properly. Enjoy all of the benefits a sump pump has to offer by choosing Chapman for sump pump repair and maintenance as well.

Sump Pump Maintenance Services

Sump pumps are one of those home systems that really don’t get any attention until something goes horribly wrong. But this isn’t the right way to handle things! A pump is designed and intended to meet your needs on both a regular basis and in an emergency. And an emergency is the wrong time to find out the system needs cleaning or service.

Our Chapman plumbing specialists offer complete inspections and diagnostics, including electrical inspections, pump checks, drain line cleaning, and more.
