Sump pumps are critical for keeping your basement from flooding and redirecting water away from your home. As we approach spring, now is a good time to make sure your sump pump is in working order. Here are the signs that your sump pump needs to be replaced.
Your sump pump is running nonstop
If your sump pump is running continuously, it might be underpowered for the amount of water that it’s handling or for the distance that it has to pump it away from your home. In order to avoid eventual breakdowns and flooding your basement, you should think about upgrading your pump so that you can increase efficiency. If you aren’t sure if you should upgrade, our expert plumbers at Just In Time can help you! Call us for a free estimate.
You’re hearing weird noises coming from your basement
It’s not a ghost – it’s your sump pump! If you’re hearing anything other than a hum when it’s running, it’s a good indicator that it has broken parts. It could just need replacement parts, or you might need a whole new pump. Our plumbers can quickly tell you what you need!
You have some unwanted water in your basement
Your sump pump’s main job is to keep water out of your basement. If you have noticed that water is pooling in your basement, give us a call. We can determine whether to fix or replace it in order to avoid water damage in your home.
Your basement has flooded due to a lack of a battery backup
We cannot stress enough how important it is to have a battery backup in place for when your power goes out in a storm. Your sump pump cannot operate without a source of power, and it works the hardest during a storm with heavy rain – when you’re most likely to lose power. You can prevent costly repairs to your basement by simply investing in a battery backup from Just In Time.
