Homeowners who are concerned about flooding or damp issues in their basements can contact Apex Plumbing, Heating, and Air Pros for advice.
Sump Pump Installation and Repairs
Sump pumps protect your home by preventing your basement from becoming flooded. Heavy rains and flooding can present a significant risk to your home's structural integrity and can also present a health risk if the basement becomes damp enough for mold or mildew to form. Sump pumps detect rising water levels and remove the water from your property, directing it to a suitable location outside such as a drain, stream or well.
Sump pumps are designed to be durable and to last a long time, but they do require maintenance and will eventually wear out, especially if they're regularly under load. It's particularly important to inspect your sump pump after a flood or period of extreme weather, to ensure it's still in good working order.
Some signs you need to replace your sump pump include:
- The motor makes loud noises when the pump is in use
- The pump is constantly running
- The pump is 'short cycling'
- You've had your existing pump for a decade or longer
Most homeowners can expect a sump pump to last for seven to ten years, although exactly how long it'll last will depend on the style of pump. Pedestal pumps tend to last longer than models that are submerged underwater, for example. If you live in an area that sees regular flooding, it's a good idea to inspect and test your pumps regularly, and seek advice from a plumbing professional if you have any concerns.
