Signs Your Sump Pump Needs Maintenance


Columbus Sump PumpYour sump pump is a very important part of the drainage system inside of your home. While you probably will never have to pay the equipment much mind, you do need to know when to contact us and have it inspected. There are some general signs that you simply can not miss and these are essential signs that something is going wrong and, if you do not do anything quickly, you might have a larger problem on your hands. When the sump pump stops working properly, you can have the drainage system push its contents back into your house, and there are very few instances in your home owning life that are going to be worse than this. In order to avoid all of these such problems, make sure to stay vigilant and give us a call, should you notice as of these signs:

Rising Water: If you see rising water around the sump pump the next action you need to take is pick up your phone and call us. This means you already have a serious problem, and if you don’t call right away you not only are going to increase the damages but also the amount of money you have to pay to correct the situation. When it reaches this point there is nothing you can do on your own, and you really shouldn’t try to do anything either. Just wait for our professional team to show up and we’ll be there to help in no time.

Odd Noises: If you hear odd noises coming from the sump pump it is an early sign that something might be starting to wear down. With the noises it means there might be something lose, broken off, missing or another problem that might be occurring with your pump. The sooner you call to have it inspected the quickly the problem can be identified and the less expensive the repair is going to be.

Unpleasant Odors: If you start to smell strong, unpleasant odors coming from the sump pump, it means the drainage area is not working properly and it is starting to get backed up. The next thing to come is water backing up, and you don’t want this, so contact us and we’ll come out to perform the maintenance.
