Sump pumps are a necessary part of any home that has a basement that lies beneath the water table of that area. A sump pump is a way to remove water from the ground around your basement to work to keep it dry and free of flooding. There are some indicators that may let you know your pump is either about to go out or is in the process of going out and it is helpful to know what they are so you can keep an eye out.
The first indicator is any strange noises that you may hear. A sump pump should operate nearly silently if not completely silently so if it is making a great deal of noise, you may be in for trouble. If your pump does start making a great deal of noise it is best to contact a repair company to get the issue taken care of before your basement ends up flooding.
Another indicator that your pump may be in danger of failing is any failure to remove water. This is often best noticed when there is a great deal of rain or extra moisture. Rain is a great way to see if your pump is still working properly or not. If you pump does fail to remove water then you may just have an overloaded system or you may have a pump that is failing.
Still another indicator of problems is a pump that is slowing or starting to work less efficiently. As with any home system, it is important that you take the time to get regular maintenance on the item to prevent damage and failure. Often, your technician may notice if your system or pump is starting to slow or is not working as efficiently as it could.
