Sump Pumps and Backflow Valves

New Installations

Every homeowner in the City of Winnipeg knows that basement flooding is a real problem, and if you’ve ever experienced flooding in the basement of your home or commercial building, or have had issues with frozen or burst pipes, then you need a sump pump and backflow valve installed. These systems are safe and affordable, and are essential to protecting your investments from water damage and keeping your potable water clean and safe.

You Might Have a Problem If
  • Your sump pump motor has stopped working. If your sump pump motor doesn’t work then it can’t protect from flooding.
  • Is your sump pump getting old? Sump pumps, like all mechanical equipment, will eventually wear out and stop working.
  • Your basement has flooded. This is the easiest, and most stressful, way to discover that sump pump replacement and installation services are needed.
