April sump pump inspection brings May dry basement. Finally, Spring is here! And with the changing of the seasons comes sunshine, opening day, and…rain.

Jim Wagner Plumbing, Inc. offers sump pump inspection services. We do a comprehensive diagnostic inspection that will not only give you peace of mind; it will help you avoid a disaster.
Sump Pump Testing
Jim Wagner Plumbing, Inc. tests the sump pump to the manufacture specifications, to ensure it’s functioning optimally. These tests also tell us if your sump pump requires more electricity than normal to operate under its load. If the sump pump draws more power than your circuit breaker, it can trip the breaker. This may even cause an electrical fire!
Our inspection detects if a sump pump draws more than manufactured amps. This problem can be caused by multiple rotation restrictions in the sump pump such as worn bearings or a weathered sump pump shaft. The tolerances within a sump pump’s moving parts are measured in thousandths of an inch to ensure the rotating components rotate without vibration.
