Do I Need to Replace My Sump Pump?

If your sump pump is well past its prime, chances are you’ll need a replacement. But we won’t know one way or another until we’ve diagnosed the problem.

Having said that here are three signs that may indicate you need a new sump pump:


The age of your sump pump can be a critical factor in determining whether or not it needs replacement. Typically, sump pumps have a lifespan of around ten years. After this period, parts such as the impeller, motor, and switch will begin to wear down and become inefficient. In this case, it is essential to schedule an inspection to make sure it is still operational.

Strange Noises

Another sign that you need to replace your sump pump is when it starts making strange noises. Do you hear excessive rattling, grinding, or humming sounds when your sump pump operates? It might be an indication that it is struggling to function correctly. The causes of these strange noises can vary, but it could be due to a damaged impeller or an issue with the motor. A professional inspection of your sump pump will help you identify the root cause of the problem.

Sump Pump Doesn’t Pump

Lastly, if your sump pump isn't turning on or pumping water out, it's a clear indication that it is time for a replacement. Sump pumps are designed to activate automatically when water reaches a specific level. If you notice that your sump pump doesn't turn on when it should, it's a clear indication that something isn't working correctly. It could be due to a variety of reasons, such as a damaged switch or a blocked discharge pipe.
