Like most things in your home, your sump pump requires regular maintenance. However, most homeowners tend not to worry about theirs until flooding occurs. That’s why at Kinnett Plumbing, we believe the key to preventing water loss or damage is high-quality proactive maintenance. Our team of plumbing professionals is available 24/7 to install or replace your sump pump and ensure that your home is protected from extreme weather conditions.
When heavy rainfall or flash floods occur, your sump pump works to drain the excess water into the soil to prevent your basement from flooding. If the sump pump fails or becomes damaged during a storm, you may be at risk to experience high water damage. The cause of these problems could mean that your pump or pipes are either clogged or the pump itself isn’t mounted correctly. In some cases, you may find that the pump isn’t running at all.
Ensuring that your sump pump works properly can make the difference between a long-lasting home and thousands of dollars in water damage. If you suspect that you need a sump pump replacement or new installation, here are a few ways to find out:
· Examine the pump for any musty orders or loud or unusual noises
· Check to see if the floating arm is stuck or damaged
· Check for debris inside the pump that could be clogging the drain
· Trace the two electrical cords to the wall to ensure
they are plugged in properly
If not properly maintained, your sump pump may easily become broken or damaged. When left unattended, this can lead to irreparable water damage of your walls, floors, and personal belongings. That is why Kinnett Plumbing is committed to serving our Woodbridge community, and has been for over 15 years.
