Expert Sump Pump Repair and Replacement in North America

You likely don’t think about your sump pump until there’s a downpour. Then you hope it’s draining correctly so your North America basement doesn’t flood.

Sump pumps can cease working for a few different reasons.

We’ve seen it all. If your pump isn’t running correctly, get in touch with the Experts at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning to determine the problem.

We’ll take a look at your pump during our visit and offer preventive maintenance suggestions, so it won’t go out when you need it most.

Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can cease working for several different reasons:

  • Power interruption
  • Irregular maintenance
  • Undersized unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch trouble
  • Frosted over or blocked discharge lines
  • Age (average life span is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few quick things you can do to ensure your sump pump is primed for efficiency.

  1. Check that the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Verify the pump is vertical and not leaning to one side, since this can lead the pump to not turn on when called for.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, dump a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump runs and removes the water rapidly.
  5. During drought-like weather, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Confirm the discharge pipe’s vent hole is free of obstructions.
