The Importance of Maintaining Your Sump Pump

If water is getting into your basement, it is essential to get it out immediately to prevent damage to your structure and unhealthy mold and mildew growth. If you don't already have one, have a sump pump installed in your basement and/or any other area of your property where flooding and water damage are a problem (such as areas of land that slope downward towards your structure).

Well-maintained backup sump pumps ensure that your property is always protected. Here are some tips to keep your sump pump running optimally and avoid many common sump pump problems.

How to Maintain a Sump Pump:

  • Clean the sump pit on a regular basis – Make this a routine at least once every few months to remove dirt, grime, and other buildup that can cause odors.
  • Test the check valve to ensure reliable operation – Check valves help to make sure that the water that was pumped out does not come back into the pit.
  • Check the float – The float rises with the water and triggers the pump to turn on, which is important if the area floods.
  • Clean the impeller regularly – Debris can cause the impeller to jam, so keep an eye on it.
  • Check the electricity – Make sure electricity is getting to the unit and the pump is properly grounded.

Professional Sump Pump Replacement

Even with proper maintenance, sump pumps don't last forever. If our diagnostic reveals that your old sump pump has reached the end of its usable life, we'll help you select the right replacement model and provide you with expert installation. We offer a variety of options to fit your property's unique size and horsepower requirements. Below we have a few signs to look for to know when you should replace your sump pump.

When Do You Need Sump Pump Replacement?

Strange Noises

If you notice odd noises coming from your sump pump, it could be an indicator that their are worn or even damaged parts. Rattling or grinding noises could mean that their is a damage impeller, which is the fan that pulls water into the pump.

Runs All The Time

A sump pump that is running all the time is a probably due to a switch on your sump pump unit problem. If the switch is having issues, it can cause the sump pump to think that it's time to turn on.

Visible Rust

If your sump pump has visible brown corrosion on the battery terminal, this is a sign that your sump pump is in need of repair. If the rust is too much to try and repair, you may need to replace the sump pump unit itself. Call us today and we can come out and inspect the unit to see what needs to be done.
