Kansas City Sump Pump Installation
Our full line of Pro Series primary sump pumps are built to run continuously 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 day a year. They are a commercial grade pump that is only sold to and installed by qualified contractors. These pumps are backed by 1½ year, 3 year and 5 year warranties when the pumps are used in intermittent applications. A one year warranty is available when used in continuous duty application such as fountains or ponds.
The new PHCC Pro Series, “Pair of Pumps” combination systems, couples an energy efficient primary sump pump and battery backup sump pump into one compact system. The primary pump operates off AC power. If the power is interrupted, or more water is coming into the sump than the AC pump can handle, the backup sump pump will begin pumping automatically.
The units come pre-assembled for easy installation and include four float switches for ultimate protection. Two floats with the primary pump, and two floats with the backup.
The combination systems also contain unique monitoring features that warns the homeowner if the power goes out, battery fluid is low, backup pump was activated, or if the battery is discharged, defective, or battery terminals need cleaning. In addition the PS-C33 pump controller can send an alarm signal to a home security system or auto dialer.
Very happy with the job the team did waterproofing my basement and installing a sump pump. – John, Overland Park
Put it off too long, and too many sleepless nights squeegeeing water into my inadequate existing sump pump to keep it from ruining my finished living space and fearing the worst when the rains came. I’m very pleased with the results and the cost. – Jeffrey, Independence

The Bell sump pump basin is the most efficient, safe and innovative sump design available. The Bell sump basin is molded from high strength, impact resistant polyethylene to provide years of service in collecting water from around foundations. The unique bell shape, of the Bell Sump Basin, not only makes sump pump systems more efficient, but also increases the life of basement drainage systems.
SUMP PUMP FAQ’s
Q. Do you suggest upgrading sump pumps?
A. Certainly. Sump pumps do have a limited life, typically in the range of 5 years. Many people have units in their home as old as their home, which can be decades old. You do not want to trust your home’s water protection system to a cheap, old unit. There have been advances in technology, reliability, and overall power since sump pumps started to be put into homes.
Q. Do your sump pumps come with a warranty?
A. Yes! All of the sump pumps we install come with a manufacturer’s warranty.
Q. Do you have sump pump units that have a battery backup?
A. Yes. Check with your evaluator to review the bid specifications, but nearly all of the units we install come with a battery backup. We suggest this, as electrical power outages are common in times when there is a lot of rain. The time you most need your sump pump to be working!
Q. I have an older home that does not have a sump pump. Should I have one?
A. Most likely yes. Sump pumps are now part of the code for new homes, and we believe there is a good reason for this.
Q. Does the size of the basin matter?
A. Yes. We install much larger basins than average to ensure greater capacity to collect and hold water to be moved by the unit. We find many existing basins contribute to the home’s problems. Getting a large, perforated “bell” basin can go a long way to improving the performance of your sump pump.
Q. Are there any new technology advances?
A. There are. Our manufacturer has recently released a WiFi unit, which allows you to monitor the pump’s performance and get notifications to your telephone if here is a problem. This is a great system to ensure your system is properly maintained and ready to function.
Q. Is there a difference between the water pumps you install and the ones available at the local big box home improvement store?
A. There absolutely is. We install the “Pro Series” sump pumps from PHCC. These units are only available from certified, professional installers and provide a level of durability, power, and reliability that you simply do not get from a retail pump.
Q. Is there an advantage to having a backup pump / battery backup other than power outages?
A. Yes there are. We install dual pump systems that will trigger the backup system to work if the water flow is greater than the primary unit can handle. In this case, when the backup system kicks in, you will have two units working to keep up with the water that needs to be moved away from your home.
Q. My sump pump seems to run constantly. Is this normal?
A. Not really. We suggest you have us come out to look at the unit. There may be some simple repairs to get your existing system to work. Or the fact that it runs all the time could be a sign that you need to consider upgrading or replacing your existing unit. A properly functioning sump pump is so critical. Do not wait to find out you have a problem until you have a basement full of water!
