Signs of Sump Pump ReplacementFor as important as they are, sump pumps are the unsung heroes of most home plumbing systems. Since sump pumps are in the basement and not directly connected to a home’s main plumbing system, it’s easy to forget about sump pump maintenance, which includes looking out for signs that replacement is necessary. Understanding these signs can help homeowners avoid one of the worst plumbing nightmares ever; basement flooding.

If there’s anyone that know about sump pump replacement in Lake Charles, LA, it’s Roto-Rooter! As a fully licensed and bonded plumbing service, you can trust our years of experience in sump pump maintenance, repair, and replacement. If you’re ever in doubt about how to properly maintain your sump pump or if it’s time to replace it, just call our plumbers!

Understanding the signs of sump pump replacement is easier than you think. Here’s what our plumbers suggest you look and listen out for.

Strange or no noise at all
Sump pumps are always hard at work to suction water out of a sump, or a special water collection pit dug into a basement floor, and pump it a safe distance away from a home’s foundation where it won’t find its way back in. All of this work makes a distinct humming noise when a sump pump is functioning properly, so it’s important to know what your sump pump should sound like. If it suddenly begins to make different noises or stops making noise altogether, call Roto-Rooter immediately for sump pump maintenance!

Monitor the water level
Being diligent about watching the water level of your sump can help you avoid the devastation of a flooded basement. If the water level continues to rise to the top despite the sump pump being on, or if your basement floor is already beginning to flood, it’s time to replace the sump pump immediately!

Keep track of how old your sump pump is
On average, sump pumps have a lifespan of roughly 10 years or so with regular maintenance. Replacement is still inevitable however, regardless of how well a sump pump is maintained. While you don’t have to immediately run out and buy a new sump pump just because yours is approaching the 10 year mark, it’s still a good idea to keep replacement on your mind, especially if you begin to notice decreased performance. Remember, it’s much better to replace your sump pump too early instead of waiting until it’s too late and flooding has already occurred.

At Roto-Rooter Lake Charles, we understand how confusing sump pump replacement can be, especially with all the different kinds of sump pump models available. You can always rely on our expertise and professionalism to help you take the guesswork out of sump pump replacement.
