Common Sump Pump Problems

Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of the same sump pump service calls in Fredericksburg. If you’re experiencing a problem, it could be because of the following reasons:

Power Lost to the Sump Pump

If your Arlington sump pump loses power when you’re not at home, your basement is vulnerable. Storms that cause a power outage can lead to a flooded basement. If the circuit breaker trips or the pump is accidentally unplugged, your sump pump will not work. A battery back-up system will continue to pump water out of your home, even in a power outage.

Sump Pump Running Non-Stop

When a sump pump runs continuously regardless of the weather conditions, it’s a sign of a problem that needs to be addressed immediately. The most common causes of a sump pump continuously running include:

  • Continually flooding sump pit
  • Stuck sump pump switches
  • Check valve is missing or broken
  • The discharge line is clogged

Overwhelmed Sump Pump

Sometimes a single sump pump just isn’t enough to protect a home from basement flooding. The pump might not be powerful enough to handle the capacity of water pouring into the pit, especially during heavy storms. If the quality of your sump pump is poor, for example, a plastic model is more likely to burn out or fail to keep up.

Clogged Discharge Lines

Sump pumps typically send out any water collected through discharge lines. If your discharge line becomes clogged, the system will fail. Discharge lines need to be clear and covered so they can transport water out of the basement and away from your house.

Sump Pump Installation

When it comes to installing a sump pump or replacing an old sump pump, you want to make sure that the plumber who installs it is licensed and certified to work on sump pumps. Should a new sump pump be wired incorrectly, it will never work right when you need it. It is important to have your plumbing systems in proper working order.

Our professional Arlington plumbers will help you make the right sump pump replacement choice that is best for your wallet and your house. We typically install a sump system in the basement to direct water from around and below the basement’s foundation into a sump pit. The electric powered sump pump releases water from the pit and directs it into city drainage systems.

H2: Sump Pump Maintenance

Sump pumps should be regularly inspected by a licensed plumber to ensure they are working properly. Key components of the system should be tested and the water level should be checked to make sure it is not unusually high. The pit and pipes leading away from the sump pit should also be checked for clogs and debris. ARS/Rescue Rooter can perform such maintenance and make sure no hidden repairs exist with your system.
