Sump Pumps in Idaho Falls, ID
You won’t hear about “sump pumps” in many other parts of the country, but they certainly have their place here in Idaho Falls. Sump pumps are commonly used in homes with basements, but that doesn’t always have to be the case. Sump pumps are useful for any home that may receive damage from flooding, whether it’s indeed in the basement or in the home’s crawlspaces. Either way, the only time it’s too late to invest in a sump pump is after a major flood.
Sump pumps are devices whose installation is just as important as their maintenance. After all, a sump pump that fails to work when it’s needed most would be a wasted investment. A Pro Plumbing Inc. only installs products with the best warranties and a proven track-record for satisfaction with our clients. We’ll ensure that your sump pump installation is done to the highest standard, and we’ll be available all year-round to give it regular sump pump maintenance.

How Do Sump Pumps Help?
Imagine that your basement or crawlspace filled with water during a heavy rain. Due to gravity, all that water would flow downward to the lowest point. From there, it just keeps collecting until you have several inches—maybe even feet—of water in your home. Depending on what your space is used for, that can cause hundreds or thousands of dollars in damage to your home or to your belongings.
However, think of that same scenario again with a sump pump installed. Instead of letting water collect, a sump pump will automatically activate and start pumping the water out of the home. Since the sump pump is installed in a pit at the lowest point of the home, the water will have nowhere else to go.
Choosing the Right Sump Pump
The type of sump pump you have—either a pedestal pump or a submersible pump—is going to make some slight differences in how often it needs repairs. Pedestal pumps sit above the sump and may require less sump pump repair. On the other hand, the submersible pump sits inside the sump and is much quieter, but this can make it susceptible to repairs.
Choosing the right sump pump for your home is something you should leave up to one of our plumbers. Factors like the size and speed must be considered in accordance with your space in order to ensure that it drains water quickly enough. Regardless of which you choose, however, you’ll want regular sump pump maintenance to ensure that it keeps working for the times you need it.
