Failed Sump Pump

A common storm produced problem is a sump pump failure. A sump pump is that hole in your basement floor. It pumps out excess water that enters into your home. However, these pumps are prone to break because they often sit idle for years. They always seem to fail when you need them the most.

Don’t wait – time is of the essence. A broken sump pump means that water can enter your home and cause severe damage. If you have water in your basement, call Levine & Sons plumbing today and let’s get you drained so you can get on with your life.
