Sump pumps: 5 signs it’s time for a replacement

Sump pumps, like every other appliance in your home, have a lifespan. As soon as it is time for it to be replaced, you will start to see signs. Check out these five signs that you need a new sump pump to avoid a major headache, costly sump pump repairs or worse, a flooded basement.

  • The sump pit is dry
    This is an indication that the sump pump is not connected to the drainage system if the pump is running but no water is in the sump pit. A clogged drainage system or an improperly installed sump pump may lead to an empty sump pit in your basement. If the sump pump empties, immediately disconnect it and call a plumber.
  • The sump pump is making loud noises
    You can hear your sump pump running if you get close enough. In contrast, loud gurgling, rattling, or grinding noises from a sump pump are abnormal. This is usually a sign that the motor is malfunctioning. The problem can be fixed by having the motor repaired.
    If your sump pump does not work, your motor may need to be replaced. Our sump pump repair and replacement services are available in the GTA. Give our team of certified plumbers a call to book an appointment if your sump pump is making strange noises. Our plumbing and HVAC services are dependable and affordable.
  • Sump pump is operating for long periods of time
    Does your sump pump system run continuously? It is very important to address a sump pump that has been running for a long time right away. Overworking a sump pump will give you trouble in the long run. That’s why you need to consult with a sump pump service professional who can help diagnose the issue and recommend the appropriate repair or replacement.
  • Items & Contaminants in the Sump Pit
    Your sump pump could be clogged by debris and contaminants entering the system. A sump pump that is experiencing this kind of problem will slow down until it totally fails in the long run.

A sump pit without a lid is especially risky. Check your system for clogs and grime such as:

  • Rubble in the sump pump pit
  • Dirty mechanical components
  • Entangled switches

Consider installing an airtight lid on your sump pit to keep dust and debris out. Additionally, schedule a sump pump inspection to ensure that it is working properly.

  • No electricity 

A sump pump may lose power due to a defective component. The list goes on: blown fuses on circuits, unplugged pumps, dead batteries, blown fuses, or flooding from a powerful storm.

Installing a backup pump, a different circuit, or a battery backup system can help prevent a sump pump power outage.
