Sump Pumps in Atlanta, GA by Quick Action Plumbers
Basement waterproofing is an important part of protecting a home, especially if you’re located in an area with a high water table or downhill from a region that can easily flood. One of the best ways to protect your basement or crawlspace from damage is to call a plumber to install a sump pump. These devices automatically pump out excess water that gathers in the low parts of your home. This will not only alleviate water damage to your home and possessions, it will help prevent a rise in humidity and the growth of destructive, unhealthy molds and mildews.
Quick Action Plumbers offers complete sump pump services. Whether you need to have a new pump installed, or you require sump pump repair or maintenance for the one that is already in your home, simply give us a call. We are glad to help you protect your home from water damage.

Sump Pump Installation Options
There are two broad categories of sump pumps for you to consider when you are looking to have one installed, pedestal and submersible.
- Pedestal sump pumps: As the name indicates, these pumps are housed on a pedestal that sits over the sump (the excavated water collection point in the basement or crawlspace). A pipe runs down from the unit and into the sump. Impeller motors draw the water up into the pump, where it is then expelled into the wastewater system or a well. Pedestal sump pumps are easier to repair and maintain than submersible ones, but they also draw on more power to work.
- Submersible sump pumps: These pumps sit down within the sump itself. They draw the water inside through intake valves, and the impeller motor then sends the water up from the sump and into the wastewater system. These pumps are more energy–efficient than pedestal pumps, but they also risk wearing down faster due to exposure to water.
What sump pump will work best for you and how powerful it needs to be is something you must discuss with a professional installer. Working with an expert will see that you receive the ideal new pump, and that it will be installed correctly into your plumbing.
