Problem With Your Pump?
Sump pumps are important to keep your home dry and free from ground water. They are usually located in basements or crawl spaces, and they often go unnoticed or, at least, unchecked. Some sump pumps remove the ground water via either a pipe or a hose to empty either on the lawn or out to the street or to the municipal drainage system. Some sump pumps are also used to eliminate dirty laundry “grey water” from washing machines and utility sinks and are tied to the home’s sewer system.
Ejector pumps are used for other waste water including showers, toilet, and sinks in basements. These units, unlike sump pumps, can remove solid waste in addition to liquids.
Things to check are the age of your pump. Pumps should be replaced every 6-8 years or at the recommendation of the manufacturer. If you detect strange sounds… or no sound at all… you might have a problem with your pump. In the case of sump pumps, if you notice water rising over the basin, you likely have a problem with the pump or you have a blockage in the drain line out of the house. In the case of ejector pumps, if you notice bad smells, leaking water, or flooding, contact a pro ASAP.
