Signs You Need To Replace Your Sump Pump

When your sump pump is operating efficiently, it’s out of sight, out of mind. However, even the most minor issues can wreak havoc on your home if left unaddressed. That’s why homeowners should always look out for any signs that their sump pump may need repairs or replacement, including:

  • Power issues: If your sump pump doesn’t turn on, you could have issues with the float switch.
  • Constant running: When your sump pump is constantly running, it could mean it isn’t powerful enough to keep up with the accumulated water, or you may have a faulty switch.
  • Visible rust: Rust on your sump pump is often caused by a corroded battery or bacteria and can lead to clogs if not repaired.
  • Electrical issues: Tripped circuit breakers are a sign that you may have a damaged switch, damaged wiring, or an insufficient power source.
  • Significant vibrations: If your sump pump vibrates excessively, it could be due to debris that has been drawn in by the impeller.
  • Unusual noises: If the regular hum of your sump pump is replaced by rattling or grinding, you likely need repairs.

If you’re experiencing these issues, don’t delay. Call (865) 583-3957 to schedule service.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of installing a sump pump?

If your home is vulnerable to flooding, a sump pump will help protect the structural integrity of the foundation and limit dampness and humidity in your basement. This helps prevent mold growth, as well as rust and corrosion.

What are some of the most common sump pump issues?

If your sump pump isn’t operating properly, it could be due to common issues like clogging, corrosion, float damage, float switch issues, or simply an overwhelmed pump.

How long does a sump pump last?

With routine maintenance, your sump pump should last roughly 10 years.

What Our Customers Are Saying

"Adam Bunch and Salwan were our technicians. They were very professional, courteous, thorough, and we feel they did a very good job. They were both very personable, friendly, and genuinely take pride in their profession. We feel very confident in the work that they did. We have an older home built in the mid 1980s with old, failing hex water lines along with some copper fittings. We needed new lines installed and they did a good job with it. I would recommend them to other people. In comparison, the price is more expensive than some other businesses in this area for the same work, but we feel that the guarantee that comes with Pipe Wrench work brings accountability. We will use this service again in the future."

Amy C.

"Very timely. The first time I used this service I had a thermostat replaced in my hot water heater. They were quick and professional and was fairly priced. I'm in the middle of my second experience at a relatives home for hot water heater replacement. They were able to get a tech out for evaluation the same day we called (today) about a problem and have scheduled the replacement for the next day. The tech was polite, professional and advised us of all our options in a way that was easily understood. I highly recommend Pipe Wrench services."

Sasha N.

"Ryan and Tyler were fantastic! As soon as they got to our home they set expectations for all the work they were going to perform. They kept us posted on the status of the job throughout the time they were working and reviewed everything with us when the job was complete. They were professional, knowledgeable, and nice. I would highly recommend them and the team at Pipe Wrench for any plumbing needs! Although I hope we won't have to use their services again, if we ever have the need for a plumber in the future, they will be the first people we call!"

Katey M.

"They came on time with texts and calls ahead of time to ensure I knew who was coming (with a picture) and when they'd be there. Kyle was professional, personable and didn't try to sell me more than I needed. He worked with the scheduling to get me scheduled that evening, even though I couldn't be there for the install. The installation was prompt and they were clean (again with forewarning and pictures of who was coming). They are my new go to company. Thank you."

Mary W.

"Our technician showed up on time and very professional. This company never tried to take advantage of my older mom. Which some in the past have. Very thorough in explaining everything he did and the cost. They came the very next morning. My mom’s A/C had gone out the day before on a scorching hot day and week. I would highly recommend this company. Very good people."
