Although Calgary enjoys a dry, sunny climate, many Calgary homes are still prone to moisture and flooding. Homes close to a water source or in low-lying areas are at particular risk and may benefit from a sump pump.
A sump pump’s primary purpose is to remove the water from the ground directly under your basement to prevent unwanted flooding. It sits in the lowest part of your home (a “sump”) and collects water that would otherwise pool in your basement and cause damage. The pump lifts and carries the water to a sewer line or other drainage pipe, which is then flushed away from your home.
But do you need a sump pump? It doesn’t take a lot of moisture to cause damage, and even in a dry area like Calgary, homes aren’t immune to flooding. Our team of skilled and knowledgeable plumbers can help determine if your home would benefit from a sump pump, give you options for the best models for your needs, and expertly install it.
Maintaining your sump pump is essential for keeping it working as it should. Regularly cleaning and repairing your sump pump when it needs fixing will ensure it can do its job when needed. The last thing you should worry about is a faulty sump pump during an emergency flooding situation.
If your sump pump is behaving strangely, don’t ignore it, but you don’t need to rush out and replace it, either. Many issues can be fixed by a qualified plumber. Some signs you may need to repair your sump pump include:
Repairing minor issues early can be a quick and affordable solution that not only extends the life of your sump pump but can also save you the cost and headache of dealing with flood damage.

We had Son-Rise out to look at our slow drains and were impressed with their service from first call to finish. We were told up front the initial costs for the service call, what to expect from the visit and how any needed repairs would be explained and outlined before any work was performed. We had a phone call from Phyllis the morning of the appointment letting us know Patrick would be at the house within 30 minutes and he was. Patrick was professional and courteous and recommended a solution that was practical and cost-effective. I would highly recommend Son-Rise Plumbing & Gasfitting to anyone needing plumbing service in Calgary. They truly deliver the level of service that they promise.
