A sump pump is a kind of submersible pump that is usually installed at the lowest point of a home. It channels groundwater into a perimeter drain system that is placed at the base of the home’s foundation. The sump pump then works by redirecting the water to the nearest dry well, drain, or retention pond. It is typically activated by a float switch such that it is turned on when water reaches a certain level. It is by redirecting excess water that the sump pump is able to prevent flooding inside the home.

The professionals from Northwest Plumbing, Heating & AC will troubleshoot the sump pump in the event that it is not working properly. Homeowners and other property owners may want to look for a number of signs that indicate that the sump pump may be malfunctioning. These include the presence of a musty, mold or mildew odor; loud noises; a stuck float switch; and a sump pump that is not running. It may be a good idea to immediately call the professionals from the plumbing services company if any of these signs are present.

Meanwhile, although sump pumps are equipment that do not require much maintenance, it is still essential to have them inspected and tested regularly. They suggest that homeowners and other property owners have their sump pumps checked at least once a year. Failure to do so may put the home at risk of water damage when there is a heavy rainfall.

In the event that the sump pump can no longer be repaired, repairing it would cost too much, or it is too old and is expected to keep failing, it is time to have the sump pump replaced and have a new one installed. The experts from Northwest Plumbing, Heating & AC are ready to install a new sump pump when it is needed.
