It is recommended to have your sump pump inspected and serviced annually by a professional to ensure that it is in good working condition. This can help to prevent unexpected breakdowns and water damage to your home.
A sump pump is a pump used to remove water that has accumulated in a sump pit, typically located in the basement of a home. The pump is activated by a float switch when the water reaches a certain level and pumps the water out of the pit and away from the home.
Signs that your sump pump may need to be replaced include frequent tripping of the circuit breaker, strange noises coming from the pump, and a decrease in the pump's ability to remove water.
