Many homeowners wonder “what does it cost to install a sump pump?”.  If you have a wet basement, you must take the necessary steps to channel the water out of your basement and away from the foundation of your home. In many cases, you will need to install at least one sump pump.

If you have a basement that has never flooded, you may be one of the lucky homeowners that does not need to purchase a sump pump. However, if your home is susceptible to leaks and your foundation is letting in water, you must find solutions to move the water away from your foundation.

What Does A Sump Pump Cost?

The cost of a Sump Pump can range from $1100 – $2900 depending on the model.  This includes a Sump Pump with a battery back-up pump. Typically, RCC recommends the Liberty 1/3 Horsepower sump pump with battery back up unit to cover power outages. This is above the standard and is the one to go with for a submersible pump. This high-grade sump pump also comes with a 3 year warranty, which is 2 years more than other brands.

Sump Pump Installation Costs

The cost to install a sump pump is affected by the location of your installation. The ideal location is usually the utility room. But, it is imperative that the location be where the discharge of water is ideal. You must also make sure that the discharge is at least 3 ft away from a hydro panel.

Installing a sump pump can get complicated. Digging into cement or concrete requires a level of expertise and special tools, plus the clean-up is more difficult. The electrical hook-up also is not recommended for the average DIY’er.

There may also be an added cost to install the sump pump depending on the complexity of the discharge.

Best to spend the money to have a professional install the sump pump for you. The average cost for the labor is between $100 – $200 per hour.

What Is The Cost Of Replacing A Sump Pump?

Replacing a sump pump will cost you less because there is typically no digging involved. The cost usually starts at $1100 and includes the cost of the new sump pump.  It’s important to note that depending on your municipality, you are eligible for a rebate on sump pump installation – as much as $1750 for Toronto residents.


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Had 2 companies quote on the job, RCC and a Hamilton competitor, regarding persistent small amounts of water coming into our family room from the corner. The competitor arrived and looked at the job. Little information given to me regarding the problem but he had a fix. $4100.

RCC came to estimate the job and the representative Richard explained what was happening, how they would fix the problem and how they would keep the family room clean while the work was performed. $960.50. The crew arrived, laid down cover mats and then proceeded with the repair. The same repair as the other company quoted. The job was clean, the attention to detail was meticulous, and after they had left the house, you would not know they had been in our family room removing concrete, dirt and stone. WOW. Nice to deal with an honest and reputable company. I would recommend to anyone to use RCC Waterproofing for their job.”  – Don Wallace, Hamilton ON  Read More Customer Reviews
