Your sump pump is the best — and virtually only — line of defense your home has against basement flooding and expensive water damage. If you live in a home with a basement and you don’t have a sump pump, or you have an old one in desperate need of replacement, your home and belongings are vulnerable to water damage.
Contact Gotelli Plumbing right away for sump pump installation and repair if you need to replace or repair your system. Trust us, you do not want to be caught without a sump pump during the rainy season!
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.
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:
Call on the reliable team at Gotelli if you notice these signs or any other abnormal problems with your sump pump. We’ll quickly send a plumber to inspect the system and diagnose the problem for you.
If you’re not sure your sump pump needs repair, there are a few telltale signs to look out for. For starters, if a sump pump was not installed properly the first time, it might not divert collected water correctly.
It is also not uncommon for sump pumps to experience power failures. Switches on sump pumps also have a tendency to get stuck — or sometimes they will experience pipe blockages. Our expert plumbers can quickly identify the problem and repair the unit with ease.
Another problem facing your sump pump is normal wear and tear over time. If your sump pump is in need of frequent repairs and is at or past its 10-year lifespan, you might need to consider replacing the unit.
