Expert Sump Pump Repair and Replacement in Indianapolis

You likely don’t think about your sump pump until it rains hard. Then you expect it’s draining properly so your Indianapolis basement doesn’t take on water.

Sump pumps can stop working for a couple different reasons.

We’ve done it all. If your pump isn’t working like it should, call the Experts at Broad Ripple Service Experts to investigate the problem.

Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit running for a few different reasons, like:

  • Power loss
  • Lack of maintenance
  • The unit is too small
  • Sloppy installation
  • Ice-covered or clogged drain lines
  • Age (the average pump lasts 10 years)

We’ll examine your pump during our visit and provide preventive maintenance suggestions, helping make sure your sump pump won’t quit when you need it most.

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few simple things you can do to make sure your sump pump is primed for efficiency.

  1. Check that the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Check that the pump is positioned correctly and not leaning to one side as this can cause the pump to not turn on when instructed.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, drop a bucket of water into the pit to check the pump starts and removes the water rapidly.
  5. In dry weather, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Make sure the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
