Sump pumps are a valuable tool for homeowners in our area. For many people in areas with high water tables, a flooded basement is a very real possibility. You could find yourself with a flooded basement, a huge mess to clean up after, damaged belongings, structural damage, and mold growth without a quality sump pump in place if flooding is a problem in your home. But with the right sump pump and professional services to keep it in good shape, you won’t have to worry about it.

Embrich Plumbing Co provides comprehensive sump pump services in Collinsville, IL and the surrounding areas.


The first step to preventing and controlling basement flooding is choosing a quality sump pump for replacement or installation. Your new sump pump will be installed at a low point in your basement, and it will move water from out of the basement to the outdoors. As water fills a pit, a pump simply moves it from one area to another. But there are a couple of different designs of water pumps that can achieve this goal.

A submersible pump goes into the pit, while a pedestal pump sits above the pit and has a hose that leads to the inside. Which one you choose will depend on your needs and the space in your basement. You should consider, however, choosing a model with a battery backup. These water pumps plug into the wall, which means that a power outage could put them out of commission. That’s why it’s wise to work with trained professionals to select a unit that works even when you have no electricity.


Checking on whether you need sump pump repair is an important part of owning one of these units. There is no way to tell that your sump pump will work properly when you need it most unless you test it from time to time. And testing a pump is easy. Simply pour water into the pit and make sure the pump is able to get it out. We recommend doing this each month, and right after a storm or a major flood. Call a technician for professional maintenance for even more peace of mind over the performance of your unit.
