TYPES OF SUMP PUMPS
There are only two types of sump pumps on the market and we can repair or replace both of them for our residential customers in Bethesda, MD. The two sump pump types are submersible and pedestal and they are described below:
- Submersible sump pump: A submersible sump pump cannot be seen once it is installed because it is installed underground. This is the most common type of sump pump installed in homes today. They are efficient and very quiet. Many homeowners often check to see if it is working because it runs so quietly. This sump pump also has a very long life expectancy.
- Pedestal sump pump: A pedestal sump pump is installed above the ground and uses two components: a standalone motor that uses a hose to pump water into a pit. This sump pump costs less than the submersible version, but takes up more space and has a lack of power.
REPAIR YOUR CURRENT SUMP PUMP & SAVE MONEY
Many homeowners tend to ignore their sump pump for years, which can lead to costly repairs or the need to replace the unit. You should check on the unit at least twice per year to make sure it is running properly. Ignoring the sump pump could also lead to the unit failing in the middle of a downpour or other severe weather event that could wind up flooding your basement. Despite a failed sump pump, you won’t have to spend a ton of money having a new one installed when you call 24/7 Plumbing & Drain LLC to make the necessary repairs to your current unit. You will find a list of the most common sump pump repairs our plumbers handle in the section below:
The float is a trigger that tells the sump pump motor that it is time to turn on because there is too much water in the pit and it needs to be pumped out of the home. The float rises as more water enters the pit of the pump. If you want to test the float all you need to do is slowly pour water into the pump’s pit and watch the float rise. If the float fails to rise it needs to be replaced. If the float rises but the pump does not activate you might need to repair the motor.
It is very easy for debris to build up in the sump pump pit. You need to check the pit often throughout the year and empty any debris that is in it. Anything can fall into the pit, especially if it is not blocked off from the rest of the floor where it is installed. Try to empty the pit at least once every six months.
THE CHECK VALVE
When you are testing the float in the paragraph above you need to make sure that the pump is triggered by the float. This means that everything is good with the sump pump. If the float does not trigger it means that the sump pump is not working properly. This is usually discovered by water returning to the pit. The check valve will need to be replaced if water returns to the pit.
If no parts of the sump pump are working when you are testing it out you should check the electrical connections. Make sure the cord is plugged into an outlet. Make sure the outlet is still good. And also check your electrical box for any tripped breakers. Did a GFCI outlet reset? If none of these are the answer you need to call a plumber for the installation of a new sump pump in Bethesda, MD.
