Why Do You Need a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a system designed to act as a preventative measure against flooding and water damage and is essential for homes located in areas prone to floods or in an area where the water table is higher than normal. If the ground around your home’s lower levels or basement is saturated with water, the additional pressure on your home’s foundation walls can create cracks, which will allow water to start seeping in and damaging your appliances, furniture, electronics, and more. Sump pumps protect against this by pulling the water out of the ground surrounding your home and depositing it a safe distance away. There are two common types of sump pumps you can have installed to better protect your property.
The Two Most Common Types of Sump Pumps We Install Are:
- Pedestal pumps: A pedestal pump is generally used for homes with smaller sump basins and can be purchased as either “above basin” units or submersible pumps, which are located underwater.
- Permanent pumps: These are the most commonly installed types of sump pumps and are installed along the edges of your home to prevent excess groundwater from entering your home.
How Long Do Sump Pumps Last?
Depending on the quality of system you have and how often it is used, a sump pump should typically last roughly 10 years. When your sump pump starts failing, you may be uncertain if a repair can fix the problem or if a replacement is needed. Certain issues, such as musty or mildew-like odors or a worn-down component like the switch, can be fixed by a repair. However, other problems may require a new sump pump to be installed. Watch for any of the following signs that indicate it may be time for a new unit.
When to Replace Your Sump Pump:
- If there is rust within the system, which will impact the water flow
- If the sump pump is always running
- If you hear unusual noises when the unit is running
- If the sump pump won’t start or work in any capacity, which could indicate an issue with the motor
- If the system frequently turns on and off in short cycles
- If the unit takes a lengthy amount of time to run, indicating that the pump’s capacity may be limited
If it is time for a new system, we recommend consulting with the team of Northern Virginia plumbers at Reddick & Sons right away. Having the installation performed by a professional, ensures that it is done correctly. An improperly installed sump pump can lead to issues, causing the system to not be able to function properly, which can result in an early replacement being needed.
