Thursday, May 26th, 2016 by Kayla LeMond


An Example of Why Routine Maintenance is Important on Your Sump PumpHaving a sump pump installed in your basement or crawlspace has the potential to protect your home from damaging water and rotting wood. But what happens if the sump pump is not checked routinely? The sump pump could malfunction failing to pump the water out and cause damage to your home. 

Routine Maintenance Will Keep the Pump Working Properly

Having a service technician check your sump pump will ensure that the pump is doing its job. The sump pump is used to pump unwanted water out of your basement or crawlspace. Keeping these areas dry is vital to keeping your home comfortable.

The pumps of a sump pump need to be checked to make sure there isn’t anything that is obstructing the pumps from doing their job. If you have a battery backup, that will also need to be checked to make sure it will keep the pumps working in case of a primary pump failure or power outage.

Routine Maintenance Will Make Sure the Machine is Working When You Need It

A sump pump is a great product to get the unwanted water out of your basement, but what if it fails in your time of need? Water can be a big pain to get rid of and cause major damage to your home.

Having your sump pump checked routinely will ensure that all the parts are working properly so you don’t have to deal with unwanted water. Service technicians will be able to look at your sump pump in a short time period to ensure no parts need to be replaced and that in your time of need, the sump pump will be working properly. 

Routine Maintenance Will Help You Save Money from Replacing Parts

Service technicians will be able to clean and repair your sump pump. By having this done routinely, the cost of a broken sump pump significantly reduces.  The cost to service your sump pump is significantly less than repairing your home from flooded water.

If the machine has not had a maintenance check, then the dirt and grime that has built up in it can cause it to malfunction. This malfunction could cause a backup that could lead to damaging floods in your basement or crawlspace.
