SUMP PUMP REPAIR
Because your sump pump is so important to your Westfield, Indiana home, it’s a good idea to be aware of these potential early warning signs that sump pump repair is needed:
- The sump pump sounds like it’s constantly running. Your sump pump should only run if there’s water in the sump pump pit. If there isn’t, you may need a switch adjusted, repaired, or replaced; it’s also possible the sump pump is wearing out and needs to be replaced.
- The sump pump sounds too loud.
- The level of the water in the sump pump pit doesn’t look like it’s going down.
Sump Pump Testing and Maintenance
Even if you don’t notice any warning signs, however, you should still have your sump pump system tested and maintained on a regular basis. You can test it by pouring water into the sump pump pit and seeing if the ejector pump comes on. You should also clear away any rocks, dirt, or debris, make sure nothing is restricting the flow of the discharge, and that the check valve moves freely and in the way that it should.
If you’d rather not check and maintain the sump pump yourself, a technician from 24-7 Plumbing will be happy to provide the service for you.
