Our licensed plumbers can also troubleshoot problems with sewage, ejector, booster, circulating and well pumps. Contact us today to book a service call.

Make Maintenance a Priority

At Black Forest Plumbing, we recommend that you get your sump pump inspected and serviced by a professional at least once a year. Taking preventive measures will ensure that your home or commercial building is provided with optimal flood protection.


During a maintenance visit, our plumbers will check to make sure your sump pump’s float switch, motor and other components are functioning the way they should. They’ll also look for signs of rust and remove sediment from the pit and discharge pipe.

Repair Services You Can Rely On

If a problem is detected during your annual inspection or you suspect your sump pump is malfunctioning, you can count on our technicians to propose quick, effective and affordable solutions. We guarantee high-quality work, and you can trust our team to get the job done right. 


Black Forest Plumbing also provides 24/7 emergency repair services throughout the York Region and in the Greater Toronto Area. Since a broken sump pump puts your basement at risk of flooding, contact a plumber immediately if your unit fails.

Signs You Should Call a Plumber

If you have a sump pump in your basement, it’s important that you be able to spot signs that the unit is malfunctioning. Being vigilant will ensure your sump pump is repaired as soon as possible and that plumbing disasters are averted. Here’s what you should watch for:

  • Unusual noises (grinding, gurgling, rattling and slurping)
  • Excessive vibrations while the pump is running
  • Frequent on-off cycling or the motor continuously runs 
  • Rust and other signs of corrosion
  • Slow drainage or the motor runs even when the pit is empty

Contact a plumber if you notice any of these issues. You should also consider replacing your sump pump with a newer, more reliable model if it’s nearing the end of its lifespan. On average, sump pumps last seven to 10 years.
