Sump Pump Services Ravinia Plumbing Offers
We provide a full line of sump pump services, including maintenance, repairs and new sump pump installation.
Groundwater sump pumps
The job of a groundwater sump pump is to remove groundwater which has infiltrated your home’s crawlspace or basement. Sump pumps sit in or above the sump pump pit. Water which finds its way into your home’s basement, typically during a heavy storm, will naturally flow to the lowest point. This is where your home’s sump pump basin is located. When water collects within the pump’s basin, the sump pump activates and pumps the water through a drain line and outside of the home, away from the foundation. This prevents any flooding from occurring.
Sump pump maintenance is a critical component to keeping your sump pump running efficiently and to ensure it’s there for you when you need it most. The plumbers at Ravinia Plumbing offer a full range of sump pump services, including emergency sump pump repair and sump pump installation. Contact us today for more information, or to speak to one of our sump pump repair experts.
Emergency battery backup sump pumps
A battery backup sump pump protects your basement in the event of power outages or primary pump failure, and helps if more water enters the basin than the primary pump can handle.
But not all batteries are created equal: our experts match the right 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 by providing better sump pump drainage when you need it most. Contact the certified plumbers at Ravinia Plumbing to install a backup battery sump pump and stay safe from excess water that can cause basement flooding.
Sewage ejector pumps
Some people get confused about the differences between sump pumps and ejector pumps because they are both located within small basins in your basement or crawlspace. While a sump pump manages groundwater, ejector pumps are responsible for collecting water and sewage from drains that are located under the home’s main sewer or septic line, such as a basement bathroom. Contact us for for ejector pump repair or installation services.
Ravinia Plumbing carries a full line of sump pump accessories in the case your groundwater sump pump or battery backup sump pump ever needs a repair.

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 three- or four-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.
