Sump Pump Maintenance by Our Los Angeles Plumbers
Routine maintenance is an essential part of keeping your sump pump in working order. Neglecting to properly care for your pump could prove disastrous in the event of a flood, potentially leading to hundreds or even thousands of dollars worth of water damage. Don’t take that risk when sump pump maintenance can be completed simply!
We recommend taking the following steps every three months:
- Clean the inlet screen on the sump pump
- Make sure the power cord is in good working order and is not frayed
- Clean dirt, gravel, or debris from the sump pit
- Pour enough water into the pump to raise the float and activate the pump
- Make sure the discharge line is open and free of obstructions
In addition to this periodic maintenance, it is also a good idea to schedule a yearly sump pump checkup with a qualified plumber. During this checkup, the plumber will inspect the sump pit, check valve, backup power source, alarm, cover, and water discharge location. Additionally, the pump and sump must be cleaned every year.
How Often Should You Replace Your Sump Pump?
Even with proper maintenance, sump pumps typically require replacement every five to seven years. If you are in need of a replacement or are having issues with your sump pump, a Los Angeles sump pump service specialist from A-1 Total Service Plumbing can come to your property to determine the best approach. We will complete repairs if that is in your best interests but may recommend a replacement if your unit is beyond its usefulness. Replacement may be less costly than continued repairs, not to mention the hassle of dealing with a broken sump pump in the first place.
