How To Tell if Your Home Needs a Sump Pump
Sump pumps work to reduce the water pressure in the ground around your home and thus prevent it from forcing its way indoors. You might need a sump pump for your home if:
- You get leaks or flooding in your basement and want to prevent damage, mold, etc.
- Soil or drainage changes have increased the amount of water concentrated around your home
- You can’t take any chances with flooding of your basement after a remodel or finishing of said basement
It’s our pleasure to tell you all about the advantages of owning a reliable basement or crawl space sump pump. Contact us today to learn more!

Life Span of a Sump Pump
A well-maintained sump pump will last an average of 10 years before it needs to be replaced, though, of course, this can vary significantly in practice. Some pumps will fail much earlier, especially with less maintenance, while some will borrow more than their fair share of time and endure for years beyond their recommended time.
We strongly recommend the proactive replacement of any sump pump that’s hit the 10-year mark, as an unexpected failure can have catastrophic effects on your home.

FAQs About Sump Pumps
What maintenance do sump pumps require?
Sump pumps should be cleaned every month. This includes wiping it down and ensuring the grade isn’t blocked or damaged. You will also need to flush it once every quarter and thoroughly inspect the drainage pipes, screens, inlets, battery backup, and other components yearly.
What is the difference between pedestal and submersible sump pumps?
Pedestal pumps are less efficient and noisier than submersible pumps. They are becoming less and less common, and homeowners opt for submersible pumps that are more efficient and quieter.
How much horsepower do I need?
Bigger is not always better, nor is it always required. Choosing the wrong-sized sump pump can result in oversizing or under-sizing, which translates to short-cycling or continuous operation. As such, it’s best to stick with pumps with one-third to one-half horsepower.
Will the sump pump work if the power goes out?
No, unless the sump pump is connected to an emergency power generator. If a flood or heavy rain knocks out the power grid, your sump pump will not protect your basement or crawl space from flooding.
