When Should I Replace My Sump Pump?
On average, sump pumps need to be replaced every 7 to 9 years. Here are some of the reasons why it’s time to replace your Ottawa home’s sump pump:
1. Smells Bad
Trust your nose! If you are dealing with a bad smell, it could be due to your sump pump working irregularly. This means you have standing water from time to time, causing water damage and moisture in your basement- a great place for mould to grow!
2. Making Loud Noises
Clanging, Rattling, Gurgling, any loud noises can be indicators that something is wrong with your sump pump. Each noise can indicate something different and give us some hints to know if your sump pump is going to need replacing.
A clogged impeller will sound like grinding or screeching, while if it’s damaged it will sound more like rattling. It could also be installed incorrectly, a bend or slant in the system can cause it to gurgle or problems with connecting pieces. Our plumbers can take a look and let you know what is wrong!
3. Constantly Running
This point is obviously weather-dependent, in the middle of a huge rainstorm, it’s alright that it is turning on often. If you have the wrong size motor for the basin, the check valve (responsible for making sure the water you pump out, stays out) has an issue, or the float switch (which triggers the motor to run) is stuck in the “on” position, your sump pump will frequently run on the drier, sunnier days.
