What Are Some Common Symptoms of Sump Pump Problems?
The following are frequent mishaps that can occur with your sump pump. Each can be prevented with an annual maintenance visit from a licensed plumbing professional.
The switch can become stuck, so the pump will not automatically click on when water collects in the basement.
Your sump pump can grow old and unreliable, especially if it’s not properly maintained.
A frozen or blocked pipe prevents water from being pumped out of the collecting basin so that the pump doesn’t do its job.
The pump may become overwhelmed. To prevent this, ask an expert plumber to help you choose the right type of sump pump for your basement and to perform a quality installation.
You haven’t tested the pump lately. Testing can be as simple as pouring a few gallons of water into the sump pump and checking to see if it’s quickly and completely flushed out of the house.
No backup. A backup pump kicks on if storms cause power outages, rendering your main sump pump useless. Backups typically use battery power or are powered with the force of the city water supply.
Do I Need a Sump Pump?
With the harsh weather here in Michigan, a sump pump can help protect your property from water damage, rot, insect infestations, and mold growth if:
Your house is located on a floodplain, or your basement has flooded in the past.
Your region experiences significant rainfall regularly, or the local water table is higher than your home’s foundation.
Your home’s sewage lines are below the main line. Since gravity isn’t sufficient to send the sewage to the main line, a sump pump can help. A sewage sump pump adds the force needed to evacuate sewage from your home correctly.
What Does a Sump Pump Do?
It gives you confidence that your basement won’t flood, no matter the weather.
It makes your home healthier by preventing mold and mildew.
It keeps your home’s foundation dry and in good shape.
Keeps your home and possessions safe from water damage in a storm or flood.
