Repair & Installation
A sump pump is a device that pumps water out of a pit placed below the water grade in your home. This pit is located usually at the end point of the drains installed in or around your home's basement.
When it rains or snow starts to melt, water fills the pit and the sump pump turns on to pump the water out of the pit, away from your home and into a drain pipe that is often connected to your sewer line.
Because a sump pump is often submerged in water, it should be checked and tested once a year to ensure it still operates. If the sump pump fails, it could lead to flooding your basement and costly damages.
The Geiler company offers sump pump inspection services to make sure your sump pump is in good shape.
We also offer sump pump backup pumps, as well as battery back up and water powered sump pumps for when the power fails.

Choose the Right Sump Pump for Your Home
A sump pump is an essential tool for any homeowner.
If you're a homeowner, you know that water damage can be a costly and frustrating problem. One way to prevent water damage is by installing a sump pump in your basement or crawl space.
Choose the Right Type of Sump Pump.
There are two main types of sump pumps: pedestal and submersible. Pedestal pumps have the motor mounted above the sump pit, while submersible pumps have the motor located inside the pit. Submersible pumps are generally quieter and more efficient, but they can be more expensive. Pedestal pumps are typically less expensive and easier to access for maintenance, but they can be noisier and less efficient. Consider your budget and specific needs when choosing the type of sump pump for your home.
Consider the Pump's Power and Capacity.
When choosing a sump pump, it’s important to consider the power and capacity of the pump. The power of the pump is measured in horsepower (HP), with higher HP pumps being able to move more water at a faster rate. The capacity of the pump is measured in gallons per hour (GPH), which indicates how much water the pump can move in an hour. Consider the size of your basement or crawl space and the amount of water that needs to be pumped out when selecting a sump pump with the appropriate power and capacity.
Don't Forget About Maintenance and Installation.
While selecting the right sump pump is important, it’s also crucial to properly install and maintain it. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installation and hire a professional if necessary. Regular maintenance, such as cleaning the pump and checking for any damage or wear, can also help ensure that your sump pump is working properly and ready to handle any potential flooding.
