Expert Sump Pump Repair and Replacement in Indianapolis

You probably don’t think about your sump pump until it rains hard. Then you expect it’s draining correctly so your Indianapolis basement doesn’t sustain water damage.

Sump pumps can quit running for a few various reasons.

We’ve witnessed it all. If your pump isn’t draining correctly, contact the Experts at Broad Ripple Service Experts to determine the problem.

We’ll examine your pump during our visit and provide you with preventive maintenance tips, so it won’t stop when you need it most.

Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can stop operating for a couple of different reasons:

  • Power loss
  • Irregular maintenance
  • Wrong unit size
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch problems
  • Icy or clogged discharge lines
  • Age (average expectancy is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few easy things you can do to ensure your sump pump is set up for efficiency.

  1. Check that the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Verify the pump is vertical and not leaning to one side, since this can cause the pump to not turn on when called for.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, pour a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump runs and removes the water rapidly.
  5. During arid forecasts, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Confirm the discharge pipe’s vent hole isn’t plugged.
