Sump Pump & Sewage Pump Installation & Repairs

If you’re like most folks, your sump pump is the last thing on your mind… Until you’ve got a foot of water in your basement! Call Church Plumbing & Heating at 574-295-6844 for fast service and fair pricing when your sump pump or sewage pump quits pumping.

Sump or Sewage? What Kind of Pump Do You Have?

Showing up at your home with the right pump for your application can make all the difference when yours is on the fritz. In general, a sump pump deals with the ground water that finds its way around the perimeter of your basement or crawl space. Many times a clothes washer located in the basement will also drain into a sump pump. A sewage pump, on the other hand, is designed to deal with solid waste and is typically found only in homes and businesses with a bathroom in the basement.

You can usually tell the difference between a sump pump and a sewage pump in two ways. First, the basin that holds a sewage pump will always have a sealed lid to keep the sewage smell from making its way through your home. This is not a foolproof way to identify which type of pump you’ve got, though, as a sump pump will sometimes have a sealed lid — especially if radon is a concern in your geographic area.

The other way to figure out what type of pump you’ve got is the size of the discharge pipe. Since a sewage pump is designed to handle solid waste (ewww!), it will usually have a discharge line that has an inside diameter (ID) of 2″. The outside diameter (OD) of a discharge pipe like this is usually around 2-1/4″, whereas a sump pump will usually have a 1-1/2″ ID discharge pipe (approximately 1-3/4″ OD).

Special circumstances may make identifying the type of pump you’ve got more difficult. If you’re not sure what you’ve got, just give us a call at 574-295-6844 to have one of our plumbing technicians out to your home.

What Our Clients Are Saying

This was quite possible the best service call I’ve experienced. JD explained everything and worked with me so I could see how he worked through my radiator issue and we came to find a solution. He also listened and repaired my toilet so much better than the last person we had called out for the same issue. Church will be getting all my calls from now on. Thanks so much!

D. Dodwell

Kristi was top notch and provided A1 service. Very professional and pleasant. As always Church Plumbing was able to work around my schedule to accommodate me and complete my services.

T. Bay

I and my neighbors have used Church Plumbing & Heating for years and are totally loyal to this business because they deliver exactly as promised, efficiently and professionally, and at affordable prices. Recently, we had a seriously blocked kitchen sink, that one workman threw his hands up and said he couldn't fix it, and yet Church came out and fixed it in 30 minutes at a very affordable cost...

Q. Martin

Nick & JD were right on time, very nice guys & made quick work of relocating our kitchen gasoline (they had to do some ductwork too to get there!). I really appreciated how fast Church could respond to my appointment request & how easy communication was the entire project. Will be using again, will even try to request Nick & JD if possible. Thanks so much!

K. Peachey

Kristi was awesome! She drove an hour in a blizzard to come fix my furnace when I couldn't find anyone else to come help me so that we could have heat during this snowstorm. She was very nice and helpful as well!
