Louisville Sump Pump Repair or Replacement
If you need sump pump repair or replacement, you usually need it immediately. At Maeser, we know how important it is to protect your home from the devastating damage caused by a flooded basement or crawl space. Your home’s sump pump is an essential appliance. Even an inch of water can cause thousands of dollars in ruined furniture, carpets and flooring. That’s why it’s critical that your home’s sump pump be in working condition to get the water out of your basement or crawl space as fast as possible.
Testing Your Sump Pump
Sump pumps should be checked for proper operation a couple of times per year. To test your pump, simply pour some water into the sump pit until the submersible pump cycles. This is usually an easy process and only takes a few minutes. Don’t wait for a failure during a heavy rainstorm to find out that your sump pump isn’t working.

Types of Sump Pumps
There are several kinds of sump pumps available, including:
Pedestal Sump Pumps – an electric upright pump with a float-activated switch designed to turn on when the water reaches a preset level. This type of pump is ideal for basements that require regular water drainage.
Submersible Sump Pumps – electric, ground-installed pump intended to work underwater. These are generally quieter than pedestal-type models due to their sealed motors that keep out moisture and debris.
Back-Up Sump Pumps – We also highly recommend that homeowners consider a back-up sump pump option. Electric pumps can fail due to power outages, resulting in extensive damage, rejected insurance claims, higher premiums, limited coverage, higher deductibles and even exclusion from future coverage. The two Back-up Sump Pump systems currently available are Battery Back-up Sump Pumps and Water Powered Back-up Sump Pumps. Based on years of experience we recommend and have found that Water Powered Back-up Sump systems are more reliable.
We install several types of sump pumps from renowned manufacturers such as: Hydromatic, and Zoeller including back up sump systems by Liberty and Water Commander.
Choosing the right sump pump for your home
Unfortunately, low quality sump pumps often fail when you need them the most, and without warning. That’s why we install only the most reliable sump pumps that are properly sized and configured for your home’s unique requirements.
