For years, sump pumps have been a pretty common fixture for homes with basements and crawl spaces. The pump is commonly found in a sump pit at the lowest part of the basement or crawl space. Sump pumps will turn on automatically from a pressure sensor or float activator and channels excess water through pipes that drain into an area away from the home. Unfortunately, even with proper maintenance and checking, sump pump failure will eventually happen.
When you have a sump pump malfunction, the chance of a basement flood increases whenever it rains, or heavy snowfall begins to melt on your lawn. This will cause serious damage to the basement, foundation, and any items stored in this area of your home.
If you see any of the warning signs below, you may have a broken sump pump that should be replaced immediately:
- The pump is running but not moving any water
- Basement or crawl space still floods on a regular basis
- Leaks form around pit or basket
- Unit isn't turning on at all
- Noticeable water is sitting above the designated level in the pit
