Sump Pump Services in St. Louis and Surrounding Areas
We get plenty of rain in the St. Louis, MO area, which often leads to flooding and similar damage to private residences. A smart homeowner carries insurance, but it’s far easier to rely on preventive measures than to handle clean up operations after a big storm.

Enter the sump pump, placed in a specific location in your home and designed to activate when floodwaters intrude. When installed by the pros at Performance Plumbing, they can be ready to go by the time the next rains fall, keeping your home and family safe from floodwater damage. We install, service, repair and replace units throughout the St. Louis, MO area, so call us today. At Performance Plumbing, Your Problem Is No Problem!
How Does It Work?
Some sump pumps are placed on stands and can operate for many locations. They can be loud and awkward, however. The preferred method involves digging a small hole at the lowest point on your property – usually the basement – and setting the sump pump there. As water enters the property, it naturally gravitates towards the pit, which activates the pump. The water is thus pulled out of your home and ejected via a pipe.
That keeps damage to your St. Louis and surrounding areas home to a minimum and helps eliminate worry from your mind. It will also reduce your insurance premiums, and with the help of our team, you’ll have the right personnel on hand for installation, repair, maintenance and replacement services.
Make Careful Considerations
Installing a sump pump involves a lot more than setting it up and plugging it in. Even the simplest models need to be placed in the right location to be the most effective. You also need to resolve the issue of a power supply, and ensure that the piping can properly eject the water from your home. That can prove surprisingly tricky, especially if you’ve never had a sump pump installed.
The friendly technicians on our team have the experience and know how you need to ensure that your sump pump is installed the right way: with careful consideration of the specifics of your home and an emphasis on getting every last detail right. Proper installation also means more efficient functioning: lowering the costs of operation and ensuring that your new sump pump has a long life.
We Handle Repairs and Maintenance Too
Needless to say, your system needs to be repaired quickly the moment trouble arises. The last thing you want is a malfunctioning pump when a serious flood arrives. We provide quality repair services and can fix things quickly when you need us to.
But we also believe that an ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure. That’s why we offer regular maintenance sessions designed to improve the performance of your sump pump. More importantly, it lets them spot the signs of serious trouble and schedule a repair session before the next serious rainfall. That means you’ll be ready to go when you need your sump pump and won’t be the subject of any nasty surprises.
