Why Does Your Sump Pump Need Servicing?
As we have mentioned, sump pumps, over a period of time, do need servicing. There are a number of reasons why sump pump failure can occur including:
- The initial sump pump installation was not carried out correctly
- The sump pump has had a power cut
- Pipes and pump are clogged up
- The sump pump is faulty
If you notice any issues with your sump pump e.g. the sump pump making a loud noise, then make sure that you contact a fully qualified pump engineer to get the basement pump serviced as soon as possible.
The last thing you need as a property owner is to have water penetrating its way through into your basement and not been pumped away.
Basement Pump Servicing and Breakdown Cover
We recommend that ordinarily, you have basement pump servicing carried out every 12 months but if the pump is working on a very frequent basis then it maybe that the pump will need to be serviced every 6 months. During the service, you can expect the engineer to check the following parts of the sump pump system:
- The Check Valve – to ensure it is working properly
- The Float Switch – to make sure that it is working properly
- The Impeller – checking it has free movement and is not blocked
- The battery backup system – if there is not one already in place and an engineer can fit one for you
The list above is just some of the checks that the engineer will provide during the pump service. One of the biggest issues that could cause a problem with the sump pump system is that dirt can clog up the sewage pump. If this happens the pump will need to be fully cleaned out.
While it is always best to have the sump pump serviced to limit the chances of the basement pump breaking down suddenly pump breakdowns can always occur unexpectedly.
If your property is based in the Birmingham area and you have an issue with your basement pump, then we have specialists in your area who are ready to carry out a breakdown service as quickly as possible. We will make sure that your pump is back working at full capacity in double quick time.
