Water flows to the lowest point of your house, and sump pumps keep the water out. Sump pump failure can lead to all kinds of water damage to your home’s foundation. So, a sump pump emergency calls for immediate attention to get a new one installed.
When you have a plumbing emergency and need sump pump services, don’t hesitate to call a sump pump plumber from Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Water Cleanup in St. George, UT and Cedar City, UT
Below are some of the most common signs of sump pump failure we see on the job. If you notice any of the following, contact an expert for sump pump repair or installation.
The surest sign you have a bad submersible pump is if it stops pumping water out of the sump pit. In the worst cases, the backup battery of pedestal models can fail.
If the sump pump runs even when it’s not supposed to, it could mean the float switch is miscalibrated so it runs when the water is a few inches over the ground level in the sump pit. However, continuous running could mean the old unit can’t handle the excess water due
Another sign of a broken sump pump is mold growth around the basement. Mold can form when water seeps underneath the ground into the pump pit and the pump cannot remove it.
If you can hear loud scraping noises from the lowest point of the sump pit, it could be a sign of mechanical failure that requires repair.
