What kind of contractor does this job? I have asked plumbers and other handy men and allways I find evasive answers to the replacement of the old pump in my basement.

Is there something tricky about these pumps.

I will appreciate if someone gives me an idea what kind of contractor does these installations.

I will help with your sump pump. Typically this work is done by a plumber. Most of the plumbers in the city don't deal with these as they have storm drains below the basements.

Any plumber worth his salt should be able to handle a sump pump replacement--in fact it's a simple job in most cases for a DIY individual (speaking from personal experience). It's quite a different situation when you need to install one where previously there was no provision for drainage. In those cases, there are specialty outfits who do only that sort of thing, (like an internal French drain system in a basement complete with pit and pump) or a general contractor, who can do the entire job.
