Why is Sump Pump Service Important?

Sump pumps are workhorses, but they don’t last forever. Over time they wear down and become less effective. The last thing you want is for the motor to stop during  rain storm. That’s why it’s important to have your sump pump serviced regularly by a qualified professional.

A sump pump service typically includes:

  • Inspection of the pump and sump pit for damage and debris
  • Cleaning of the pump and sump pit
  • Testing of the pump motor to make sure it is working properly and learn about the remaining life of your sump pump


How Often Should A Sump Pump Be Inspected?

We recommend having your sump pump tested at least once a year, preferably before the spring rainy season. However if your sump pump runs frequently, you may need to have it serviced more often. At least check after heavy rains to remove any debris in the sump pit. Pour a bucket of water in the pit and make sure the pump operates.
