What Is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that is installed at the lowest point in a home, such as a basement or a crawlspace. A sump pump always comes in handy to keep the house dry and flood-free. If groundwater surrounds your home’s foundation, a sump pump can help carry out the water into a margin drain system that is installed at the foundation base. Sump pumps, in short, help keep your basement or crawlspace dry.
Like any other equipment, however, you may need to repair or change your sump pump eventually, depending on how often it operates. If your sump pump is not working correctly, then don’t worry because our Sacramento sump pump specialists are here.

Importance of Proper Maintenance
Similarly, it is crucial to test the existing sump pump to make sure it’s performing properly. You can check it by pouring water into the sump pump’s pit. Once you pour water into it, it should automatically turn on and remove water. However, if it did not, then your sump pump needs proper maintenance. There might be an accumulation of dirt and debris that has affected the efficiency of the machine.
If you don’t want to do all by yourself, don’t worry—our team of experts at Plumbing Solutions would love to assist you with professional sump pump maintenance services.

The signs of a faulty or broken sump pump include:

How Often Should Your Sump Pump Be Replaced
Every 10 years or so. Exactly how often should the sump pump be replaced depends on the pump and how often it’s used. If your sump pump fails to drain out water from the basement and it is over 10 years old, then it’s time for a replacement.
