What is a Sump Pump?

In theory, a sump pump is very simple; it is a device that pumps water out of your basement or crawlspace, back outdoors. A sump pump needs to be installed in something called a sump pit, which is a specially constructed hole in the ground a little over a foot wide and two feet deep. The sump pump switches on when water rises in the pit and triggers the pump’s function. A sump pump can also be used with a backup in the event of an electrical outage or unit failure.

Who Installs a Sump Pump?

Your local New Jersey plumber can install one for you.

As these systems take a long time to install and have to meet careful guidelines to work properly, it’s definitely not a DIY job. Additionally, if you don’t bury the lines at a proper depth, they can freeze and break.

Signs That Your Sump Pump Needs a Repair or Replacement

If you turn on your basement light to find an unexpected indoor swimming pool, you can safely assume your sump pump is not working. However, there are other indicators that your sump pump is not working as it should, including:

Running continuously - If you’re asking yourself why your sump pump keeps running, you’re probably noticing a float switch problem. This is one of the easier problems to fix. However, the pump could also be having trouble managing the water load, which may require a replacement.

Runs for a long time - Did you know that sump pumps need sufficient horsepower? Pumping gallons of water is a tough job, and if the wrong size pump is installed, you will know about it sooner or later. Our plumbers can redo any poorly installed pump setup.

Rusting - Visible rust or a gel-like coating around the pump can indicate that it is compromised.

Older than seven years - A seven year old sump pump is a senior. It’s a good idea to replace one older than this to avoid unexpected failure.

Excessively vibrating - If a solid object gets caught in the pump, it can cause irreparable damage. It’s very difficult to unbend the metal once it becomes compromised, so your best bet in this situation would be to replace it.

Infrequently used - Sump pumps have to run on a regular basis, or they are at an increased risk of breaking down.

Sump Pump Maintenance Tips

It’s good to test your sump pump at least once every three months to ensure it’s still operating correctly. Additionally, it’s beneficial to:

  • Replace your backup pump’s batteries.
    Keep an ear out for strange noises while the pump is running.
    Make sure water is actually being pumped outdoors.
    Make sure there is no dirt clogging the airholes in the discharge lines.
    Make sure the float switch is not restricted.
