Emergency Sump Pump Repair

You need to be able to rely on your sump pump when your home is facing a potential flood. A sump pump failure can lead to a flooded basement, which leads to costly damage and repairs. Some signs you need emergency sump pump repair include:

  • The float switch doesn’t signal the pump to turn off.
  • The sump pump runs continuously.
  • The impeller is jammed.
  • It has a clogged or frozen discharge line.
  • The sump pump won’t turn on.

You don’t want to end up with one of these scenarios during a storm, so remember to check your sump pump regularly when the weather is clear. If you test the sump pump and notice one of these problems, call immediately for emergency repair.

Sump Pump Maintenance Tips

Proper sump pump maintenance is crucial to ensure it functions effectively during the rainy season.

Here are some essential tips to follow:

  • Check power connection: Verify that your sump pump is plugged in and receiving power. Ensure the power cord is in good condition without any frays or damages.
  • Test pump operation: Lift the float switch or pour water into the sump pit to test if the pump activates and removes water.
  • Inspect discharge pipe: Ensure the discharge pipe is securely attached and directs water away from the foundation. Clear any obstructions, such as debris, to ensure proper water flow.
  • Consider a battery backup: Install a battery backup system to provide power to the sump pump during electrical outages. This prevents basement flooding even when the main power supply is disrupted.

Sump Pump Frequently Asked Questions

Should there be water in my sump pit?

Yes, a sump pump will often have a little water in it. It comes from many sources, including rain and seepage from the ground. As long as the float switch can trigger the pump to run, a little water in the pit is normal.

What happens when a sump pump fails?

When your sump pump fails, extra water during the next storm will accumulate at your home’s lowest point, usually the basement or crawl space. This can lead to mold, mildew growth, and damage to your home’s structure. That’s why it’s important to keep your sump pump in good condition.

How often should sump pumps be replaced?

The average life span for a sump pump is 10 years. You should consider replacing yours every seven to 10 years to ensure you always have a working sump pump.
