Client Reviews & Testimonials
How do you know when a sump pump needs to be repaired?
If you observe any of the following indicators, it suggests a problem may be occurring with your sump pump:
Continuous Operation of the Sump Pump
Is your sump pump unit constantly running non-stop without any breaks? This could indicate a stuck float switch, an improperly adjusted float switch, or separate plug connections for the pump cord and float switch.
Frequent Cycling On and Off of the Sump Pump
If your home’s sump pump is turning on and off frequently, with multiple cycles per minute, it may signify water flowing back into the pit from the discharge pipe. It is advisable to contact the sump pump repair experts at Blair Mechanical before the issue escalates.
Excessive Water Issues
If your sump pump motor hums but little or no water is being discharged, multiple issues could be at fault. It is possible that the suction intake screen is partially or fully blocked, the discharge pipe is leaking, or the impeller is significantly damaged. All of these problems can result from excessive stress on your sump pump unit and require repair services.
Premature Shut-Off of the Sump Pump despite Water Ejection
Is your sump pump operating for a short period and shutting off before all water is pumped out? This could be due to an out-of-adjustment or malfunctioning float switch, or a pump overheating due to thermal overload. To prevent this, we recommend ensuring that your pump is directly plugged into the outlet without any extension cords, as sump pumps dont function efficiently without enough electrical charge.
Regardless of the problem, our sump pump plumbers will identify the necessary repairs before commencing any work. This ensures that you receive a precise understanding of the most suitable solution for your home’s sump pump unit.
