Sumps & Pumps
Nobody wants the expense or inconvenience of a flooded basement. That is why having an effective flood prevention system is so important. Since 1928, Ravinia Plumbing & Heating has been a North Shore plumbing contractor that has solved sump pump problems for customers throughout Chicago’s North Shore.
Our long-term experience with sump pump drainage has provided us with a thorough knowledge of pumps, and our experts will point you toward the most reliable systems for keeping your basement dry.
We provide a full line of
- Ground water sump pumps
- Emergency battery back-up pumps
- Sewage ejector pumps
- Pump accessories
Sump Pump Drainage Solutions
Compared to cheap pumps found in home centers, our pumps:
- Have a greater capacity
- Use a fraction of the electricity
- Come with a 3 or 4-year manufacturer’s warranty
- Include improved switch and alarm features that pinpoint sump pump problems before they become emergencies
To improve the life of your pump, our experts will install a properly sized basin. Used for collecting ground water, this basin must be sized correctly to prevent reduced pump life and sump pump problems like a flooded basement.
To further reduce the likelihood of a flood due to a failed pump, our alternators allow two pumps to act as one. And high water alarms and phone dialers can alert you to a problem wherever you are.
Battery Back Up Pumps
Battery back-up pumps protect your basement in the event of a power failure or primary pump failure, and help if more water enters the basin than the primary pump can handle.
But not all batteries are created equal: our experts match batteries to the pump charger. Although it is possible to hook up any battery to the back-up pump, only an AGM deep-cycle battery properly matched to the manufacturer’s charger will provide increased battery run time and increased overall life.
Like an emergency vehicle, battery back-up pumps must undergo regular, professional maintenance to reduce failures that could result in flooding. Our service specialists will help keep you on schedule, providing better sump pump drainage when you need it most.

“Our basement flooded for the first time in 28 years. Your response was quick and wonderful. You guys rock.”
“The technician who came out to service our outdoor and indoor sump pumps, did a great job. He was very knowledgeable and efficient. Scheduling was also very easy and the whole process was just great.”
"We had an issue with the sump pump for the ejector pit. The technician was sent out almost immediately. The problem was completely solved within 2 hours. Amazing!”
“I recently noticed on a rainy day that I had not heard my sump pump run all day. I quickly called Ravinia and explained that my house is on the market and I had showings later that day. If there's an issue, I said, I would really like to resolve it ASAP. Ravinia had someone out to me within the hour! Thank goodness I called because it turns out that the pump was on its last leg and needed to be replaced.”
