Sump pumps are required for most basements across the Ottawa area, including homes in Orleans, Barrhaven, Stittsville, and beyond. A sump pump protects your basements from the flooding that can occur after a heavy rainfall or major snow meltdown, often a side-effect of poor drainage. With over 10 years of experience, Summit Drain is well equipped to handle any of your emergency plumbing and sump pump installation needs.
What Is Sump Pump Installation?
A sump pump is a device that is installed in the lowest part of your basement, typically in a sump pit. The pit is usually no more than two feet wide and two feet deep and is lined with gravel to help keep the water level down. The sump pump itself is a small, submersible pump that sits in the pit and pumps water out through a discharge pipe.
If your home doesn’t already have a sump pump, or if your current pump is no longer working properly, it’s important to call in a professional for installation. The Summit Drain team emphasizes quality and professionalism, and with industry-leading pricing, you can get the service you need without breaking the bank.

If your pump is nearing the end of its useful life, it’s important to start thinking about a replacement and to ensure that you have a capable team with years of experience to install it correctly.
If your pump is already showing signs of wear and tear, such as rust or cracks, it’s time for a replacement. Additionally, if your pump has been damaged by a flood or is constantly running, it’s likely time for a new one.
