There’s a lot that go wrong when it comes to your plumbing, but there’s no reason you should experience unexpected flooding in your basement if your using a sump pump. Problems arise for many people when it comes to sump pump failure due to a lack of upkeep and proper maintenance.
Although most sump pumps can last anywhere from seven to nine years, well maintained sump pumps can often live longer. The key is that you need to think about your sump pump’s performance all year round … not only when you get a sudden warm spell during the thawing season or when you have a burst of rain.
Here are a few things you can do to make sure your sump pump is doing the job it was designed to do:
- clean our sump pump regularly
- check to make sure it’s working when it’s suppose to be.
- don’t let you sump pump get clogged with debris
- don’t forget to inspect your sump pump on a regular basis
- refer to your owner’s manual to find out what the predicted lifespan is for your sump pump
If you’re unsure whether your sump pump is in working order, you should consider having a professional give it a thorough inspection. Although it’s cheaper to inspect the sump pump yourself, having an expert give it a good review once a year will give you the peace of mind you need, especially if you plan on going away for a vacation or have unusually inclement weather involving torrential downpours.
