You may find oily water in your elevator pit as a result of water coming into contact with hydraulic fluids or lubricants use in the elevator mechanics, which also holds the possibility of becoming physically contaminated with dirt or dust, or chemically through contact with saltwater.
Do NOT: Dispose of any used oil yourself in sewers, lawns or any sources of water. You could face serious fines and harm the environment.
Thank you for finding your way to this page. We hope to assist you in your sump pump needs.
Sump Pumps stop working on oil contact
Sump Pump is a system that is located in the elevator pit to remove water collected in the pit. If it is not working correctly, the elevator pit will hold water for long making it a breeding area for mosquitos and a habitat of many disease causing microorganisms.
Besides Sump Pump removal, we offer Sump Pump replacement services. Don’t wait until your sump pump fails; if you notice anything unusual, such as mildew or mold or loud noises, it’s time to have the sump pump replaced. Also, if your sump pump is more than 10 years old, it may be wise to have it replaced; the typical lifespan of sump pumps is 10 years.
Reasons To Prioritize Your Sump Pump
Consider waterproofing your elevator pit...
It is necessary to maintain a clean elevator pit, and it goes beyond making sure trash beneath the elevator is cleared.
Making sure that your elevator pit is waterproofed is another way to avoid messy problems and health risks. For example, water mixing with oil and waste could attract disease-carrying mosquitoes. And produce a stench.
Maintaining the elevator pit is important to avoid mechanical issues that could lead to fluid leakages or prevent water from entering from outside sources.
