If your home has a sump pump, it is there for a very good reason. Even if you have a completely unfinished basement, your sump pump is crucial. It is your first line of defense between a flooded basement, a potentially ruined foundation, mold issues, health issues, and ruined furniture.

Why sump pumps fail:

  • Float switch broke or stuck
  • Too much water overwhelming pump.
  • Sump pump humming but not pumping.
  • Sump pump jammed by mud.
  • Tripped circuit breaker.
  • Sump pump burnt out.
  • Broken pump impeller or drive shaft.

If you exhibit one or more of these issues, your sump pump is likely living on borrowed time:

  • You can visibly see rust on or around the pump.
  • It is over 7 years old.
  • It sometimes gets stuck.
  • It runs constantly.
  • You don’t remember when it was last replaced.
  • Your pump makes very strange noises.
  • Your pump vibrates excessively when running.
  • Your pump used to run when it rains, and you haven’t seen it run in a while (a clear sign your pump has died!).
