Knowing When to Replace a Sump Pump
A sump pump can last 7-10 years depending on how well it is maintained and the amount of usage. It is important to stay on top of your pump because it is the factor that will prevent a basement flood. Become familiar with the noise your sump pump makes when it collects water. If there is a significant change in the way it sounds something could be wrong. Likewise, if there is water in the sump but NO sound, call us immediately.
Other problems your sump pump can present is vibrating, which is caused by debris and if the pump is continuously running. A pump that runs all the time is likely to give out sooner than later and usually at a time when you need it most.
The fact that we offer coupons is just one of the many reasons our customers love us!
Submersible and Pedestal Sump Pumps
There are two primary choices of sump pumps available to you. The first is submersible and the other is a pedestal pump. A submersible pump is placed under the water which requires more pit area. Because it is located underwater, the noise is significantly reduced and the water can help cool the motor. Having a smaller pit will require a pedestal pump, these sit above the water, but require far less room. Also, this type of pump is very easy to access in the event of needed repairs.
Another thing to consider is the purchase of a battery backup sump pump. While these units do cost a bit extra, in the event of a power outage during a torrential rainstorm, your basement will stay safe and dry which can completely make up for any cost incurred during its purchase.
