How We Can Help Repair and Maintain Your Sump Pump
Like any other major household system, we recommend regular maintenance at least once a year. A sump pump is installed in the lowest part of a basement to allow for any excess water to drain into the sump pit and get pumped out of your house. Here are a few things we do during a maintenance call:
- Remove any household debris, built-up dirt, and gravel, and clean the sump pump and barrel.
- Prevent freezing in the winter by disconnecting outdoor hoses.
- Install a backup battery-powered sump pump should you require it during a power outage.
Aside from preventing flooding in your basement, a sump pump also plays an integral part of your air quality control system by keeping humidity at healthy levels to prevent mold or mildew growth.
Common Sump Pump Problems
If you’ve noticed any of the following signs, you may be due for a sump pump repair or replacement:
Frequent on-and-off cycles
If your sump pump is performing too many on/off cycles, this might be an indication that the water basin is too small for your household needs. Sometimes frequent shutting on and off just requires a simple adjustment of the float switch which may be set at an improper level. Whatever the problem may be, this causes unnecessary wear-and-tear on the motor and should be fixed quickly.
Long running cycles
If your sump pump runs on and on and on it may require more power, or is an indication that it can’t keep up with household demand.
If the sump pump is not turning on at all, the float switch might be stuck.
While it’s normal to make some humming noises, and perhaps a ‘thump’ or two when the off-cycle kicks in, any unusual sounds indicate a problem. These may be rumbling or rattling sounds that signify a broken motor component or an issue with the fan.
Don’t wait until it’s too late to repair or replace your sump pump. Call Plumb Works Inc at 404-524-1825 for Atlanta sump pump repair and replacement services.
