Your home’s sump pump is the first line of defense against basement flooding and water damage. If you notice your sump pump has stopped working due to a significant amount of moisture or flooding in your basement, reach out to BP Wastewater Services of Vermont for expert sump pump repairs and maintenance, as well as new installation.
Some signs your sump pump needs repairs or replacement include:
- Musty, moldy or mildew smell in your basement – Due to the amount of water exposure they receive, sump pumps are susceptible to mold and mildew growth if not cleaned and maintained properly
- Float switch is stuck – The sump pump’s float switch is triggered when it detects excess water in the sump pit. If the switch is stuck, the pump may not work when the water level rises above the accepted level
- Loud noises – As sump pumps are fairly quiet systems, loud or strange noises coming from the unit indicate a need for mechanical service. Contact us right away to reduce your home’s flood risk
- Sump pump hasn’t run since it last rained – If a sump pump hasn’t run since the last time it rained, the unit may not be pumping water out at all
Trust our expert technicians to help with sump pump repairs, sump pump installation and battery backup installation.
