Rooter MD offers inspections and repair services to keep your sump pump functioning properly to avoid serious malfunction to your sump pump in the event of a storm.
Proper Sump Pump Function
The sump pump sits in a pit in the basement of your home and collects underground water. The sump pit collects water from the drainage system protecting your foundation and ejects the water through a discharge pipe out of your home. Water-driven back up pumps take over when the electricity fails, using water flow to siphon the existing water from the pit.
A sump pump keeps your basement and the area under it from filling with water and flooding in the event of a heavy storm or large amount of snow melt. The sump is a reservoir below your basement that is intended to fill up when levels of groundwater increase, rather than allowing the water to get into your basement causing serious damage. A sump pump moves that water up to ground level and pushes it away from your home. It is necessary to keep a properly functioning sump pump in your basement to ensure the health and integrity of your home is preserved.
Rooter MD has on call expert plumbers with a wealth of sump pump repair knowledge that will ensure your sump pump is fixed correctly in a timely, honest manner for a fair price. For over 25 years, Rooter MD has been performing sump pump repair, making sure basements stay dry.

Rooter MD are full service residential plumbing experts, installing sump systems in any basement that will direct water from around and beneath the basement foundation into a sump pit avoiding flood damage during storms and snow melts in Michigan. Our electric-powered sump pump installations allow the accumulated ground water to be discharged out of the pit and into the city storm drain all according to city code requirements.
Sump Pump Replacement

Our technicians at Rooter Md provide full service sump pump replacement with quality sump pump models recommended specifically for your property’s water table. Michigan is prone to rainstorms, snow melts, and unpredictable heavy precipitation so we make sure the sump pump in your home or business is prepared to handle the water load.
