Sump Pump Repair & Maintenance
Unfortunately, you may not know there is a problem with your sump pump until it fails to come on. Periodic inspections and maintenance can evaluate the performance of the pump and catch problems before you end up with a flooded basement. If a problem is noted during the inspection, your plumber can repair or replace the pump.
While sump pump repair is often possible, it is not the right solution to every problem. If your pump is nearly 10 years old, cycling frequently, running constantly, or making strange noises, replacement may be recommended. If you have concerns, you can schedule an inspection, and your plumber will offer advice about when to replace your pump.
Sump pumps are installed in the lowest part of the basement or crawlspace to prevent flooding. When water fills the sump pit, the pump comes on automatically to remove the water and prevent damage to your home. A sump pump is not a common purchase, and most homeowners aren’t familiar with the different options and features that are available.
When comparing sump pumps, consider:
- Pump type: The two main types of sump pumps are pedestal and submersible. A pedestal pump sits above the water, while submersible pumps are installed inside the sump pit.
- Size: The right size for your pump depends on the amount of rain in an area and your property’s water issues. Extremely damp and wet basements will require a larger pump to remove the water efficiently.
- Battery backup: Power outages often accompany storms. If the power goes out, your pump may not work. A battery backup system ensures that your pump works when you need it.
- Warranty: The warranty offers protection and peace of mind. You will get a better warranty when you work with a licensed plumber.
A professional plumber can educate you about the options and provide reliable advice to help you make the right choice for your home. A qualified plumber will provide precision installation and check to ensure your sump pump is working properly when the installation is finished.
