“Very pleasant experience. Shane was very nice. After I showed him what I needed, he gave me an estimated cost and after I approved the estimate, got to work. About two hours later, he was done. I was very pleased. If I hadn't known someone had been there, I would never guessed. Very neat and tidy. Highly recommended.”

“I was very happy with our service technician, Tommy. He sent us an e-mail & text (w/ his photo) before he arrived. He took off his shoes and wore disposable booties on his feet and was polite & respectful. He explained what we needed, in plain English, and patiently answered our many questions. He e-mailed me an estimate within 10 minutes of leaving our condo. He even paid some attention to our Cat ! My sister & I were very impressed.”

“Jessie was the greatest! Very professional and a very caring person and he was early. Tackled a difficult job with patience and efficiency. Worked with me for the most efficient and inexpensive way to complete the job of removing a rusty hose from a laundry faucet. Washer/dryer combo was delivered over an hour late and Best Buy would not install because of the rusty hose. I was very upset. Called one plumbing company, but could only make an appoint for 2 days later. Called Cardinal Plumbing and they were able to accommodate me with and appointment the same day! Very courteous and professional and very happy with customer service and especially with one of their most valued employee: Jessie. I've read the other reviews and it appears all of their technicians are very professional, caring and efficient. Jessie turned an upsetting day into a happy day. I was able to start my laundry as soon as Jessie left. Thank you again for making my day!”

“I admit I had a little sticker shock when I was quoted $466 to snake a clogged kitchen drain. I did receive a $30 discount as a first time customer. That said, I was very happy with the service. They came the next day at the promised time and took the time and effort to do the job right and explain what they were doing and how to avoid future issues. They left me some solution to to pour down my drain. The plumber was professional and very courteous. I gave four stars instead of five only because I thought they were a little pricey. Nonetheless I'd use them again.”

“Excellent service! I felt very well informed about all my options. The company calls, texts and emails when a service provider is on the way. I’ll absolutely recommend them and use them in the future.”

“Jessie Kidd showed up on time and was extremely professional. He fixed the issue we called about and found another problem that would have caused a huge flood in the near future. I was impressed that he took the time to inspect our plumbing system. Customer for life!!”

“Barry did an excellent job. He came out, assessed the problem and gave me an honest quote. Barry was very patient, knowledgeable, and great to work with. I will definitely contact Cardinal in the future for any HVAC or Plumbing needs I may have.”

“I thought Zack was great. He took care to protect our flooring by wearing shoe protectors. A quarter was stuck in our Garbage Disposal and he really worked at getting it out which wasn’t easy. I really appreciate his efforts so I didn’t have to buy a new Disposal.”

“Zach was very friendly and helpful. This company is very thorough for the entire process of setting up an appointment. Will definitely remain a loyal customer!”

Sump Pump

Sterling & Alexandria Sump Pump Repair, Replacement & Installation

Quality Services in Reston, Alexandria & Beyond
If your home was built in an area that has poor natural drainage, you may need a sump pump to help keep your basement dry during heavy rainfalls. When a sump pump is in place, the water is pumped away before it has a chance to cause property damage. There is a pit in the basement, and when the water reaches a predetermined level, the pump switches on and the water is pumped away.
Don’t let sump pump trouble create further problems in your home. Get fast, reliable help from the experts at Cardinal Plumbing, Heating & Air Inc., serving Sterling, Alexandria, Gainesville, and surrounding areas.

Which Type Do You Need?

There are two basic types of sump pump to choose from: a submersible pump and a pedestal pump. Submersible pumps are placed under the water inside the sump pit or basin and pedestal pumps have the pump motor outside the water. Pedestal pumps are good if you have a smaller pit or basin, but many homeowners prefer the submersible type. To figure out which type will work best for your home, talk it over with your plumber to get all the facts and details.

Keeping It Properly Maintained

Just like any plumbing appliance or piece of equipment, regular maintenance will keep your sump pump running smoothly when you need it. If your pump happens to break down and you get a big rainstorm that day, you may be faced with water damage that could have been avoided if the pump was properly maintained. A broken pump may also result in damage to your foundation from hydrostatic pressure that can build behind the walls. Regular maintenance will keep your pump clean and fix any minor issues before they have a chance to get worse.

Call Quickly For Service

The key to keeping your sump pump working and your basement dry is to act quickly when problems start. Putting it off until later will only end up with water in your basement and a hefty cleanup bill. As soon as you see signs of trouble, call your plumber and explain what is happening. You may get some tips on how to get the pump running again, but at the very least the experts will know what’s going on and the process will be underway.
