No homeowner wants to discover a flooded basement, as water filling up that area creates widespread damage that’s costly to repair. One solution is to install a system that directs water from your basement to the surrounding area outside.
Harris Plumbing, Heating, Air, & Electric has the expertise and equipment to install, replace, and repair sump pumps for your peace of mind.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps recognize when water is rising and use pressure to prevent the levels from rising above a certain threshold. When a switch in the basin is tripped by water rising to a certain level, it activates the pump to turn on and start pumping water into the pipe that discharges outdoors, away from the foundation. There are two main types of sump pumps:
- Submersible: These systems enclose the pump with the motor in a single unit, closed within a basin. They are quieter and space-saving.
- Pedestal: In these systems, the motor is placed above the basin, and a hose connects it to the inlet containing the pump. These systems can be bulky and loud but easier to maintain.
We make the sump pump installation process easy, whether replacing your old system or installing a pump for the first time. We assess your home, budget, and priorities to recommend the system that will work best for you — then complete the installation with highly efficient technicians who take care to treat your home with respect.
Same-Day Sump Pump Repair
Sump pumps are generally low-maintenance systems, but it’s important to know what to look for so you don’t end up with a malfunctioning pump when you need one. Here are a few of the most common issues that can affect sump pumps:
- Missing or damaged check valve
- Clogs in pumps without lids
- Stuck or faulty float switches
- Clogged discharge lines
We can inspect your system to determine the source of any issues you may be experiencing and repair them so it’s ready to go in an emergency. Call us at 856-485-7215 to schedule sump pump repair in NJ, DE, or PA.

It’s not practical or safe to do so, as it involves concrete removal and the ability to meet specific code requirements. A professional plumber is recommended for any sump pump installation.
You can test to ensure it works by filling a 5-gallon bucket with water and pouring it into the basin. The float switch should lift, triggering the motor to pump the water out. If it doesn’t, or if you hear any strange noises, it’s time to call in the professionals.
