Sump Pump Installation

Professional Sump Pump Installation by Hoerner 

Take advantage of the City of Toronto’s basement floodproofing subsidy!

Earlier this year, the City of Toronto announced that they will subsidize your floodproofing services by up to $3,400:

  • Backwater valve….$1250
  • Sump pump……….$1750

If ever you considered sump pump installation, now is the time to call Hoerner Heating and Plumbing to book your service while the subsidy is available.

Our favourite sump pumps: The PC sump pump series is a fully assembled sump pump kit system. The model pc237 441 with battery backup pump is frequently installed by us. It can also be used with a variety of other sump pumps.

Flood Prevention and Sump Pump Installation Subsidies

In the last 10 years, the municipality has invested $37 million toward floodproofing more than 22,000 properties through the Basement Flooding Protection Subsidy Program, which covers 80% of three specific flood prevention devices, including sump pump installation.

A sump pump is used to deflect water away from the home, and the subsidy covers up to $1,750 of the sump pump installation costs. During times of heavy rain, a sump pump can realize significant savings as it prevents costly repairs and damage to walls, floors and belongings.

It is not uncommon for suburbs in Toronto to receive a month’s worth of rain in a single week, which often results in basement flooding, and window wells filled with water. Severe weather conditions have been on the increase due to global warming, and that increases the importance of homeowners taking the required actions to reduce the risks of basement flooding. 

Hoerner Heating and Plumbing: Sump Pump Installation 

When you book a sump pump installation and you would like to qualify for the rebate, be sure that you hire an appropriately qualified plumbing contractor with valid City of Toronto plumbing license that covers the specific work. The reason for this is that different plumbing contractors have different licenses and may therefore not be eligible to perform sump pump installation.

Hoerner Heating & Plumbing contractors are licensed to perform:

  • backwater valve installation, repair, and servicing
  • sump pump installation, repair, and servicing
  • pipe severance and capping

Please read our guide on Toronto’s Basement Flooding Protection Subsidy Program for more about the backwater valve rebate, in case you would like to include that service when you call for sump pump installation. Hoerner Heating and Plumbing contractors are standing by to assist you with a total basement flood prevention solution.
