Lockport Pump & Valve Services 

Experienced Plumbing Pros in Joliet 

Anyone who has lived or worked in the state of Illinois for very long knows that rain can accumulate quite quickly. When it does, you will need a dedicated pump system to ensure that your cellar, basement, or crawlspace does not succumb to an unexpected flooding situation. Our team members at Trailblazer Plumbing Services are proud to offer excellent quality when it comes to any form of Lockport pump and valve services.

The Importance of Investing in a Pump Installation

Most people enjoy the sound of rain lightly tapping on the roof, but this relaxing setting can quickly turn sour if your basement or crawl space starts to flood. Having an effective pump that is properly maintained can help homeowners mitigate the damage done by flooding. As water collects within a designated basin, the pump will pull that water away from your property, minimizing the damage it can do. You can either invest in a submersible pump, which will be placed directly within the basin, or a pedestal pump, which protrudes out of the water. 

No matter which option you choose, always have a knowledgeable professional perform the installation. You never want to take a chance with something as crucial as a pump when it comes to protecting your home and valuables from water damage. 

For any size or type of pump, simply contact us now at (815) 855-5085, and one of our experts can offer detailed support.

Why Are My Valves Not Functioning Correctly?

Your pump system would not be able to work properly without essential valves in place, carefully controlling the levels of pressure and water flow. These days, valves are manufactured to work for long periods of time, but eventually, excessive use will cause them to break down. By being aware of signs of valve failure, such as loud chattering sounds or random vibrating, you can ensure that the issue is addressed as early as possible.

Some of the most common reasons for faulty valves include: 

  • The valves have not been correctly installed or assembled – If the valves are not appropriately sized, or if they have been incorrectly connected, your unit will have weak flow capacity from the beginning. 
  • You have not scheduled regular maintenance – The toughest parts of any mechanical system will only stay strong if they receive proper servicing. When debris gets stuck in the valve, it will not work properly, so regular tune-ups are necessary to clean out the valve and get it working again.
  • The valve seat seals have worn out – Inside a check valve seat, there is a special disc or ball that closes the valve gap so that water will not go in the wrong direction. The seat is then sealed with a waterproof ring made from elastomer. If this material degrades from old age, the seals must be replaced before the whole valve fails.

As soon as you recognize that your valves or the pump itself are not working optimally, do not hesitate to get in touch with our techs at Trailblazer Plumbing Services.
