A sump pump is a type of submersible pump that is usually installed at the lowest point of a house. It directs the groundwater into a perimeter drainage system that is located at the foot of the house’s foundation. The sump pump then diverts the water to the nearest dry well, drain or retention basin. It is usually activated by a float switch so that it will turn on when the water reaches a certain level. By diverting excess water, the sump pump can prevent the house from flooding.
Northwest Plumbing, Heating & AC specialists will troubleshoot the sump pump if it is not working properly. Homeowners and other owners may want to check for a number of signs that indicate the sump pump may not be working properly. This includes the presence of a musty, mold, or mildew odor; loud noises; a stuck float switch; and a sump pump not running. It can be a good idea to call the plumbing company’s professionals right away if any of these signs are present.
While sump pumps are devices that don’t require a lot of maintenance, it’s still important to have them checked and tested regularly. They suggest that homeowners and other property owners have their sump pumps checked at least once a year. Otherwise there is a risk of water damage during heavy rainfall.
In the event that the sump pump is beyond repair, it would cost too much to repair or it is too old and is expected to continue to fail. It’s time to replace the sump pump and install a new one. Northwest Plumbing, Heating & AC experts are ready to install a new sump pump if necessary.
