The job of a groundwater sump pump is to remove groundwater that has infiltrated your home’s crawlspace or basement. Sump pumps sit in or above the sump pump pit. Ground water that is collected by the drain tile piping surrounding the foundation of your home is conveyed to the sump pump basin. 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 critical to keeping your sump pump running efficiently and ensuring 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, regular sump pump maintenance, and sump pump installation. Contact us today for more information or to speak to one of our sump pump repair experts.
A battery backup sump pump protects your basement in the event of power outages or primary pump failure. It helps if more water enters the basin than the primary pump can handle.
But not all batteries are created equal: our experts match the suitable batteries to the pump charger. Although it is possible to hook up any battery to the backup pump, only an AGM deep-cycle battery adequately matched to the manufacturer’s charger will provide increased battery run time and improved overall life.
Like an emergency vehicle, battery backup 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.
Some people get confused about the differences between sump and ejector pumps because they are located within small basins in your basement or crawlspace. While a sump pump manages groundwater, ejector pumps collect water and sewage from drains under the home’s main sewer or septic line, such as a basement bathroom. Contact us for ejector pump repair or installation services.
Ravinia Plumbing carries a full line of sump pump accessories in case your groundwater sump pump or battery backup sump pump ever needs a repair. For example, we can install a high water alarm that can also connect via Wi-Fi to provide mobile alerts when you are not at home.
In the case of sump pump failure, Ravinia Plumbing offers sump pump repair services, sump pump replacement, and sump pump inspection. For reliable plumbing services you can trust, don’t hesitate to contact Ravinia Plumbing today.

Our alternators allow two pumps to act as one to further reduce the likelihood of a flood due to a failed pump. And high water alarms with Wi-Fi connectivity can alert you to a problem wherever you are.
