Sump Pump Repair and Replacement in Midlothian, VA

When it rains in Midlothian, VA, we grab an umbrella and go about our daily lives. Lots of rain puts property at risk for flooding, and your basement or crawl space needs more than an umbrella to stay dry. Rainfall in Virginia averages 44 inches annually. It has risen in amount and intensity over the past four decades. Home and business owners need to address potential flooding issues. Many residential and commercial properties use a sump pump as part of an overall water control strategy.

What is a sump pump, and how does it work?

A sump pump is a machine that prevents flooding by transferring water from inside your basement or crawlspace to a location away from your house. The sump pump sits in a pit (known as a sump basin) below your home. A sump pump requires electricity to operate. Unfortunately, there are often electrical outages during storms, so a backup power source for your sump pump is vital. Most of the time, your sump pump sits idle. When excess water collects from rain, melting snow, or even a broken pipe, water will fill the lowest space first. That is the area your sump pump should be located. As water rises, the sump pump mechanism activates and discharges the water to a pipe away from your home or business. Once the water level falls to a specified level, the float switch is disengaged, and the sump pump turns off.

What are common sump pump problems?

A sump pump is just like any other mechanical system in your home. It requires maintenance and is susceptible to malfunction.

Here are common issues:

You might need sump pump repair from Plumber Near Me because of a clogged system. The discharge pipe that carries water from your basement or crawl space away from your home can become clogged by mud, rocks, or other debris. Water buildup or very slowly draining water near your sump pump is a simple way to detect there might be a clog.

You might need sump pump repair from Plumber Near Me because you notice a bad smell around the sump pump. Your sump pump has a drain trap that holds water designed to prevent sewage or gas from backing up into your basement or crawl space. It can smell like gasoline or just generally foul. This is more likely to happen in hot and dry weather when your sump pump has been off for an extended period.

You might need sump pump repair from Plumber Near Me because it is constantly running. Many reasons can cause your sump pump to run continuously. Most commonly, it is a stuck switch. Failure to have it repaired can overheat your pump and lead to early system failure.

You might need sump pump repair from Plumber Near Me because it is making some strange noises. Most sump pumps are very quiet. If it is making its presence known, reasons could be that your sump pump impeller is not spinning and is jammed, or because of failing motor bearings, loose parts, and more. One major cause of these noises is improper installation. That is why you should have sump pump installation completed right the first time with Plumber Near Me.

What is the normal life expectancy of a sump pump?

A sump pump that has been well maintained has a lifespan of about ten years. Routine maintenance involves removing the pump from the sump basin and cleaning the entire system, as well as regular inspection of the connections and overall unit condition. Sump pumps should only run when necessary, so be aware that overworked pumps shorten life expectancy.
