5 Common Sump Pump Issues
A sump pump is designed to pump water through a discharge pipe, moving the water away from your home’s foundation. Sump pump malfunction or failure can cause a flooded basement and expensive water damage. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take a lot of water to cause major problems. Just even a small amount of standing water in your basement can quickly turn into a mold problem.
Here are some common sump pump problems that our team will be able to diagnose and fix for you:
- Overwhelmed Pump – If your sump pump is not the right size for your home, it might not be able to handle high volumes of water, which can leave you with a flooded basement. Have one of our experts come out and inspect your sump pump to make any necessary repairs or replacements.
- Pump Burnout – A burnout can occur because of a faulty float switch or an overworked, underpowered pump. Pumps can be prone to failure, so it’s a good idea to have one of our experts ensure that your pump is not going to experience burnout.
- Power Outages – A sump pump needs power to function correctly. Pumps can get tripped by a circuit breaker, be affected by a power outage, or simply get unplugged accidentally.
- Clogged Intake – If the intake becomes clogged, this prevents the pump from extracting water from the sump pit or sump liner, causing a backup.
- Frozen/Clogged Discharge Line – The discharge pipe is what keeps water from your foundation. The pipe can be clogged with dirt, roots, and other debris, or frozen during extreme winter conditions that can clog the system.
