Did you know that you can do more to protect your home from water damage? If you have a basement or a low-lying level to your home, you’re at risk of water damage every time the water table level rises. This could happen during a storm or anytime you have a long, wet season.

At Turner’s Service Company, we are here to help you protect your home. Call us today to find out more about water-powered sump pumps in Manassas, (also known as jet sump pumps or water jet sump pumps). We’ll help you find one that’s right for you and install it fast!

What is a Water-Powered Sump Pump?

Some sump pumps rely on batteries, but ours rely on your municipal water system. When your sump pit gets full of water, it triggers the pump to open and get a supply of fresh water. It accelerates this water through a jet, creating a pressure differential.

This pressure pulls the water out of your sump tank. It empties into a pipe that removes it from your home. Thus, you have the emptying power you need without relying on electricity or battery power.

How Does a Water-Powered Sump Pump Work?

Water-powered sump pumps rely on physics to work. Your sump tank has a float in it. When the water levels get high enough that that float rises, it triggers a valve opening in the top of the sump pit.

That valve brings in water, which powers the pump ejector. The powerful suction it creates is a function of physics, too. It relies on the Venturi Principle to create enough suction to pull all of the water out of the sump pit.

What are the Benefits of a Water Jet Sump Pump?

People love water jet sump pumps because they don’t require much maintenance. Since you don’t have to change batteries or check electrical connections, you can pretty much get it installed, then forget about it.

We do recommend testing your pump by running it through an entire cycle at least once or twice a year. Fill up your sump pit until the float rises, then let the pump empty the tank entirely. This keeps it in good shape and lets you know if there’s a problem you need to address.

    Friendly and courteous, went beyond the initial problem to check all factors that may have contributed to my heating issue. Joe took several extra steps to isolate the issue and spent the necessary time to check all factors, from thermostat to element.

    We woke up on this cold morning with a broken furnace. Called Turners and they were out within a couple hours, found the issue, and repaired immediately. So pleased we won’t have to suffer the cold with no heat! Tim was awesome, super friendly, and would welcome his work anytime!
