Frequently asked questions about sump pump repairs
What to do if the sump pump stops working?
If your sump pump stops working, it could be due to any number of issues. The first step is to check the power source—make sure that the unit is plugged in securely, and that the outlet has power. If there is no power, you may need to reset a circuit breaker or replace a fuse.
If the power source checks out okay, then you will need to check the float switch and make sure it’s not stuck in the “on” position. If this doesn't work, you may have a more serious issue such as an airlock or clogged intake screen—in which case you should call a plumber for further assistance.
What is the most common reason for sump pump failure?
The most common cause of sump pump failure is age. Older models are prone to wear and tear over time—and when combined with regular use, this can lead to mechanical failure or electrical problems. Age isn't always an indicator though; many newer units still fail due to improper installation or lack of maintenance. So if your sump pump is showing signs of trouble (e.g., running too often), it's best to contact a professional right away so they can diagnose and fix any potential issues before they become bigger problems down the road.
How often should a sump pump be replaced?
It depends on how frequently your sump pump runs, as well as its age and overall condition. Generally speaking, if your unit is over 10 years old or displaying signs of wear (e.g., strange noises or slow drainage), then it's probably time for an upgrade or replacement unit altogether depending on what kind of issue you're dealing with specifically.. Additionally, if your basement floods frequently then you should consider replacing your unit sooner than later in order to avoid costly repairs in the future from water damage caused by failed pumps!
