Sump, Sewage & Storm System Inspections

Your sump and sewage pumps play a vital role in the operation of your building. Due to the fact that these pumps are often located in parkades or storage rooms they are often neglected until they suffer a failure. In order to offer some protection against this, James Electric provides a yearly sump and sewage pump inspection and report.
