Frequently Asked Questions
A sump pump’s lifespan might vary based on factors like usage and maintenance. However, it is typically advised to replace your sump pump every 5-7 years to make sure it is reliable and operating correctly. It might be required to replace your sump pump earlier if you start to experience any problems with it before this time.
Although installing a sump pump yourself is possible, it is advised to hire a professional to do it to guarantee that it is done correctly and safely. Poor installation can result in problems like leaks, electrical concerns, and decreased performance.
It may be a good idea to have a battery backup for your sump pump, especially if you reside in a region that experiences frequent power outages. In the event of a power outage, the backup battery will make sure that your sump pump keeps running, helping to avert flooding and water damage.
To make sure your sump pump is working properly, it is advised to test it at least once a year. Pour water into the sump pit until the float switch turns on the sump pump to test it. It might be time for maintenance or repairs if the pump won’t operate or isn’t successfully pumping water out of the pit.
A check valve is a valve that only lets water flow in one direction to stop it from backing up into the sump pit from the discharge pipe. Sump pumps require a check valve to make sure that water is being pumped out of the building and not back into the pit.
