Basement flooding is a nightmare scenario for homeowners. It can lead to extensive water damage, mold, mildew, and costly repairs. This is where a sump pump comes into play. Installed in a sump pit, usually in the lowest point of your basement or crawl space, a sump pump works to manage water levels, preventing flooding and the associated damage.

Types of Sump Pumps We Install

At Superior Service, we recognize that every home is distinctive, and your sump pump should align with your specific requirements. Therefore, we help install different types of sump pumps.

Select the one that best suits your home’s layout, your maintenance preferences, and your need for uninterrupted protection, even in challenging weather circumstances. We are dedicated to delivering sump pump solutions that provide the efficiency and reliability you expect, tailored to the unique demands of your home.


These reliable sump pumps are strategically installed within the sump pit, positioned below the water level.

Renowned for their efficiency, submersible sump pumps operate quietly, making them an ideal choice for many homeowners. Plus, the submerged placement not only contributes to their unobtrusive operation but also helps prevent any unsightly clutter in your basement or utility space.


Unlike submersible models, pedestal sump pumps are mounted above the sump pit.

Their above-ground location offers a distinct advantage: easy access for maintenance and servicing, which can be a significant benefit in the long run. However, it’s essential to note that pedestal sump pumps tend to generate more noise compared to their submersible counterparts.


Weather can be unpredictable, and power outages can happen at the most inconvenient times, particularly during severe weather conditions.

A battery backup sump pump is designed to provide you with peace of mind that it will continue to function even when the power is down, safeguarding your home from potential flooding and water damage. This added layer of protection is especially valuable during storms and heavy rainfall, assuring you that your basement remains dry and your possessions protected.

How We Do Sump Pump Installation

Our step-by-step sump pump installation process is designed to provide you with the best protection against basement flooding. Here’s how it works:

1. Assessment: We’ll evaluate your basement or crawl space to determine the ideal location for the sump pit. We’ll help you choose the right primary pump based on factors like water table height and horsepower requirements.

4. Wiring and Power Source: We’ll connect the pump to a GFCI outlet and ensure it has a reliable power source and a battery back-up to operate, even during power outages.

2. Sump Pit Installation: Using a jackhammer, sledgehammer, or concrete cutting tools, we’ll create a hole in your basement floor, concrete floor, or crawl space for installation of the sump basin.

5. Float Switch Installation: We’ll install a float switch to activate the sump pump when the water level rises.

3. Discharge System: Once the pump basin is in place, we’ll install a discharge pipe—or PVC pipe—with a check valve to ensure water flow is safely pumped through the discharge line, and out through a downspout away from your home.

6. Testing and Maintenance: Before we leave, we’ll test the sump pump to ensure it works correctly and provide you with maintenance tips to keep it in optimal condition.
