Why You Need Basement Pump Servicing Carried Out?
The Basement Sump & Pump Company are specialists in the maintaining and servicing of basement sumps and pumps.
It is a good idea when there are periods of heavy rainfall that your sump pump system is working properly. You can find everything you need know about sump pumps on how does a sump pump work? page.
We have been installing basement pumping stations since 2005 and providing preventative maintenance for our customers ever since.
Pumps have to work harder when there is heavy rainfall. Without pump maintenance, failure can occur which can result in flooding to your basement or cellar.
A number of our customers have battery back up systems which come into play when there is a power cut or failure. This is often is a result of storm damage and heavy rainfall.
During our maintenance visits, we check and service the battery back up systems also.
If your sump pump is reliant on electricity only then is there a potential vulnerability of a power outage and for the sump pump to stop working.
By contacting one of our qualified technicians, they can advise you and provide you with the upgrade options for a battery back up system.
Sump Pump Monthly or Annual Maintenance
You expect your basement sump and pump system to work efficiently and reliably for you every day of the year – keeping your basement dry – but are you sure you can rely on your pump?
Keeping your pump running can be an expensive business. The longer you’ve had it, the more chance that it will need sump pump maintenance.
Wear and tear can mean your pump system is running less efficiently than it should be. In turn, this increases the chance of pump failure which can lead to hefty repair costs and damage to property should it fail altogether.
We are specialists in working with customers to provide planned service, clean and checks or sump clear outs.
We schedule 3 monthly, 6 monthly or annual appointments depending on the usage and environment.
You should have your sump pump system maintained annually as a minimum. This depends on the risks and use of the system and the geology of the property.
More often than not our customers prefer a 6 monthly service, clean and check.
For commercial premises where there may be greater use, we recommend, in line with British Standards to have your sump pumps serviced, cleaned and checked every 3 months.
