Most people don’t think about a sump pump replacement until it is too late. Unfortunately, not being proactive with sump pump replacement can cost thousands of dollars if yours fails and leads to a flooded basement. Sump pumps can be overlooked, but these systems are a vital component of your home’s plumbing system. They are designed to keep your basement, crawl space, or any other low-lying area dry. Scheduling sump pump maintenance or repairs before it fails is always better than coming home to a flooded basement!

Common Sump Pump Problems & Solutions
Basement or Crawlspace Has Flooded
The worst feeling is to step down into your basement and feel a wet “squish” between your toes. If your basement is finished, the situation can be even more disheartening. Sump pumps fail for many reasons; from power outages, to age, and even lack of use. A good professional-grade sump pump is a must and should be replaced (at a minimum) every 3 to 5 years to avoid the “squishy” experiences.
Sump Pump Is Constantly Running
It is a sign your sump pump is on its last leg. Sump pumps don’t like to run dry; if it’s running when there is no water in the sump pump pit, this can cause a “switching” problem. Depending on your sump pump, the switch can either be repaired, adjusted or replaced. We can evaluate the problem and make sure that your sump pump is working properly.
Sump Pump Needs a Backup
Sump pumps, by nature, fail at the worst time. A flooded basement or crawlspace can cause thousands of dollars of damage. Big-screen TVs can be replaced but not family heirlooms. Give yourself that added security and peace of mind by protecting your home and family possessions with a professionally installed backup sump pump system for less than you think. There are different types and styles of backup sump pumps to choose from, such as battery backups, AC/DC backups, all-in-one sump pump systems & 2 pump system with alternator. We can help you determine what the right system is for your home.
