Sump Pumps in Temecula
Protecting Families in Riverside County & All of Southern California from the Ground Up
Over time, moisture in your basement can have catastrophic effects on the safety of your home and health of your family if you don’t have a sump pump in place to remove it. You may feel safe because humidity in Southern California is limited and snowfall really only occurs in the mountains, but there’s other ways moisture can accumulate in your basement.
Water can accumulate from leaks, pipe bursts, irrigation trickling through soil, and heavy rainfall. It reaches your basement through tiny cracks in the foundation, or opens these cracks when the source of moisture is coming from inside the basement itself. If you don’t have a sump pump in Temecula or your existing system isn’t working right, Master Plumbing and Leak Detection can help. Our professional plumbers can help you pick out and install a new sump pump while addressing other plumbing issues – such as leaks – that may be the underlying problem.
Identifying Moisture in Your Basement
Determining if you need a sump pump or dehumidifier for your basement can be as easy as noticing a puddle on the floor, but sometimes it’s not always so obvious. Knowing the signs of moisture presence can help you identify a water issue in your Temecula, Riverside County, or Southern California home before it becomes a serious issue.
Call a Temecula plumber to check out your basement if you notice any of the following:
- Rust stains around metal fixtures
- Damp or rotting wood
- Mold and mildew
- New or developing cracks in walls or floor
- Discoloration of floor in a particular spot
- Mineral deposits, also known as efflorescence
If you’ve seen any of these in your basement, your sump pump might need repair or replacement.
