A sump pump moves water away from your home and into a storm drain. This helps prevent water damage to your home. Most sump pumps are placed in the basement of homes. Sump pumps are a great way to reduce the risk of storm damage, but it is important to properly maintain your sump pump so that it does not let you down when you need it the most.
About Our Sump Pump Services
We recommend servicing your sump pump every year to ensure it operates in an optimal manner. Our primary sump pump services include inspection, maintenance (repairs), replacement, and new installation.
Sump Pump Inspection
Sump pumps should be inspected and tested on a regular basis; we recommend sump pump inspection annually. This is because many sump pump complications are hard to detect. If there are undetected concerns, then you run the risk of major water damage to and around your home when a major storm occurs.
Sump Pump Maintenance
O’Connor Plumbing can service your sump pump if it is not working correctly. This may include replacing certain parts that are making your sump pump non-functional or inefficient. We have the tools and skilled technicians necessary to properly maintain your sump pump long-term.
Sump Pump Replacement
Sump pump replacement may be needed if there is significant damage or the sump pump has endured too much wear and tear. Our skilled technicians can handle the entire sump pump removal and replacement process for you.
Sump Pump New Installation
You may need a sump pump installed for the first time if you have started to notice water accumulation in your basement and other parts of your home. We can install a new sump pump for you at a competitive cost and with excellent warranty coverage.
Signs That Indicate A Need For Sump Pump Maintenance
Sump pumps are recommended for most homes that have a basement; in some cases, homes without basements may also need a reliable unit as well. You should not notice any signs of water build-up in your basement after a storm if you have a sump pump. If any of the following signs are present, then you may be in need of sump pump maintenance.
- There is standing water in your basement
- The sump pump does not work
- There is a foul smell
- There are loud noises
- The float switch is stuck
As mentioned, we recommend servicing your sump pump once a year since the signs of a non-functional unit can be hard to detect without a professional inspection. In many cases, there are no repairs necessary. However, if there are any issues, then our team will fix them promptly to ensure you are prepared for the next storm.
