Emergency sump and ejector pumps services
Once a sump pump or ejector pump fails, you’re at serious risk of flooding, which leads to property damage and potential health risks. If you have an ejector pump that you rely on for pushing out wastewater, failure means that you’re not going to be able to use toilets, washing machines or sinks that are tied to that pump. This means you need immediate assistance to get it repaired or replaced.
At Old World Plumbing, we have installed many battery backup systems for sump pumps, because when the power goes out during a big rain storm, you need your sump pump to remain active and doing its job to remove water from your subgrade rooms.
Your pump emergency might be related to any of the following:
- Incorrect pump size
- Improper pump installation
- Power failure
- Frozen discharge pipes
- Defective parts
- Lack of maintenance
- Faulty switches
- Clogged discharge lines
Regardless of the problem, Old World Plumbing has the expertise to get you back online.

These are signs that it’s time to call Old World Plumbing.
Any number of things can go wrong with a water heater, such as a faulty valve, malfunctioning gas lines (for the gas units), failed heating elements (for the electric units), bad switches, rusting tank, leaking tank, etc. Regardless of your water heater emergency, Old World Plumbing can assist.
