What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that is installed in the lowest part of your home, typically the basement. The sump pump is connected to a switch that activates it when water is detected. The pump will then begin to pump the water out of your home and into the sewer. This process prevents water from entering your home.


When to Call for Sump Pump Repair

Calling for sump pump repair is crucial to prevent basement flooding and water damage. Here are some signs and situations when you should call for sump pump repair:

  • Strange Noises: If your sump pump is making unusual or loud noises, it may indicate a mechanical problem that needs attention.
  • Frequent Cycling: If the sump pump turns on and off frequently, it could be a sign of a malfunctioning float switch or electrical issue.
  • Failure to Turn On: If the sump pump doesn’t activate when water levels rise, it’s a clear sign that something is wrong and immediate repair is needed.
  • Water in the Basement: If you discover water in your basement, and the sump pump didn’t engage, it’s a sign that it’s not functioning properly and needs repair.
  • Visible Rust or Corrosion: Corrosion or rust on the pump or its components can affect its performance. It’s a good reason to call for repair.
  • Vibrations or Shaking: Excessive vibrations or shaking during operation can indicate misalignment or damage to the sump pump.
  • Strange Odors: Unusual or foul odors coming from the sump pump may indicate motor or electrical issues that require attention.
  • Old Age: Sump pumps typically have a lifespan of 5-15 years, depending on the quality and usage. If your pump is near or beyond its expected lifespan, it’s a good idea to have it inspected and potentially replaced preventively.
  • Visible Debris or Blockages: Check the sump pit for debris, dirt, or blockages that might impede the pump’s operation. Clearing these obstructions might resolve the issue.

Sump Pump Alarm Going Off: If your sump pump has an alarm system and it goes off, it’s a clear indication that something is wrong, and you should call for repair immediately.

It’s essential to address sump pump issues promptly because they play a critical role in preventing basement flooding and water damage. Regular maintenance and inspections can also help identify and address potential problems before they become major issues.
