Ocean City Plumbing Pumps

Sump Pump Troubleshooting & Installation

In your plumbing system, pumps help move water through the house, especially when the water is working against gravity. Sump pumps are usually installed in basements to get the water to the first and subsequent floors. A sump pump keeps your basement from flooding when the water passes through this lowest level of your home. Our Ocean City plumbers at Poseidon Plumbing & Home Services makes sure you can count on your sump pump.

Is Something Wrong with Your Sump Pump?

Since sump pumps are out of sight, they can often be out of mind until something goes wrong. Your pump should have a working alarm to let you know if it stops functioning, though sometimes these alarms fail too.

The best way to make sure your pump is in tip-top shape is to have it serviced every year, especially if it's been a few years since you've replaced it. A sump pump should last about 10 years, but you can add to its lifespan with regular maintenance.

Common problems we address with sump pumps include:

  • Chronic loss of power
  • Loud operation
  • Frozen pipes
  • Sump pit flooding
  • Motor cutting out
  • Worn valves
  • Sewer backups

If your pump can't move water through and out of your home, your home is at risk of mold and mildew growth. It's very important that you call us as soon as you recognize any problems with your sump pump.

Be on the alert for:

  • Strange smells in the basement, especially the musty smell of mildew
  • Sinks that are slow to drain
  • Loud sounds coming from your pump
  • Alarms going off on your pump
