What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a device designed to remove water from your basement when it starts flooding, preventing damage to your home and belongings. If your basement has ever flooded, or even if it just gets damp in some areas, you should have a sump pump installed. Sump pumps aren’t just for basements, though. Flooding in a house’s crawl space can also cause significant water damage. Even if your home doesn’t have a basement, you should still have a sump pump installed if you have a crawl space underneath your home.
Why Are Sump Pumps So Important?
Having a working sump pump for your basement or crawl space is essential. Not only is water damage in these areas expensive, but it can also be extremely difficult to repair. Water damage to your walls and flooring may require full or partial replacement. Sumps are also beneficial for several other reasons:
- Sump pumps keep the area dry and prevent mold growth/buildup.
- Having a new or well-maintained sump pump adds value to your home.
- Sump pumps can save belongings in the event of a flood, from furniture to irreplaceable family possessions.
If your home already has a sump pump that is not working correctly, it’s time to take action. You should have it repaired or replaced as soon as possible. Don’t wait until you really need it on a rainy day — call Gotelli Plumbing now.
When to Replace Your Sump Pump
Short of a full breakdown, it can be difficult to tell if your sump pump is working correctly. If you know what to look for, however, your sump pump will tell you when it’s at the end of its lifespan. The best indicator that it’s time to replace your sump pump is its age. If the equipment is over 10 years old, it’s time for a new one. Additionally, the following issues indicate that your sump pump isn’t working as it should anymore:
- No water in the sump pit
- Clogged switches and pump
- Unusual noises
- Continuous or frequent running
- The pump completely loses power
