Do All Houses Need Sump Pumps?
While every home doesn’t require a sump pump, there are several situations that make them essential:
- Low-lying areas: Homes in the Coastal Empire and the Lowcountry are at lower elevations, so they’re at a greater risk of flooding during heavy rains, making sump pumps a valuable asset.
- Crawl spaces: If your home has a crawl space, it’s particularly vulnerable to water intrusion.
- High water table: Homes located in areas with a high water table are more susceptible to groundwater seepage.
- Frequent rainfall: Beaufort County and Savannah’s frequent heavy rainfall can overwhelm drainage systems, making sump pumps an essential safeguard.
Sump Pump Installation & Replacement
A sump pump is a specialized device designed to remove excess water from your crawl space or other low-lying areas of a home.
It consists of a pit, also known as the sump, where water collects and a pump that automatically activates when the water reaches a certain level. The pump then discharges the water away from your property, preventing flooding and water damage.
Proper installation of your sump pump is crucial for its effectiveness. Our experienced plumbers at Canady’s will:
- Determine if your property needs a sump pump
- Recommend the right type of sump pump for you
- Provide a free replacement estimate and financing options
- Ensure your new sump pump is correctly installed in the optimal location
This ensures that your sump pump operates reliably when needed.
Signs You Need Sump Pump Repair
Recognizing the early signs of sump pump issues can prevent costly water damage to your home. Here are some signs that indicate you may need sump pump repair:
- Strange noises: Your plumber needs to investigate the cause of unusual sounds coming from your sump pump, such as grinding or rattling.
- Frequent cycling: If your sump pump is turning on and off frequently, it might be struggling to keep up with the water inflow.
- Deterioration: Rust or corrosion on your sump pump components can affect its performance.
- Flooding: The most obvious sign is water in your crawl space, indicating that your sump pump isn’t working properly.
Canady’s provides emergency plumbing repairs to quickly restore your sump pump.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the different types of sump pumps?
There are two primary types of sump pumps: pedestal and submersible.
Pedestal pumps have the motor located above the sump pit, while submersible pumps are fully submerged in the pit.
Submersible pumps are typically quieter and more discreet but may have a higher initial cost.
Will my sump pump work if I don’t have power?
Standard sump pumps rely on electricity, so they won’t work during power outages.
However, you can opt for a battery backup sump pump or a water-powered sump pump to ensure continuous protection if a hurricane or another major storm knocks out your power.
How do I test my sump pump?
Testing your sump pump is essential to ensure it functions correctly.
To test it, pour water into the sump pit until the pump activates. If it doesn’t start, contact your plumber for sump pump repair.
