What are Common Reasons for Sump Pump Failure?
Even the best sump pumps on the market can break eventually. What is important is that you schedule routine maintenance to drastically lower the chances of your sump pump failing, and that you call on us right away if you notice it is not working. Our team of sump pump plumbers in Joliet have the training, tools, and know-how to appropriately address any sump pump failure.
Reasons why your sump pump might be malfunctioning:
- Overuse: Each sump pump is rated to handle up to a certain amount of water per hour. If your sump pump has been working nonstop for hours to try to drain the water beneath your home, then it could burn out its own motor.
- Dry use: A sump pump that runs without any water to pump can also cause damage to its own motor, similar to trying to run a car engine without any oil.
- Clog: Dirt or debris that gets into a sump pump’s discharge pipe can cause a clog. As the sump pump tries to work against the resistance caused by clog, it can cause stress and a break.
- Wear and tear: As with any mechanical device, general wear and tear experienced by a sump pump can cause a break, especially around the moving parts of the system.
- Incorrect installation: If you let anyone other than Expert Plumbing Service install your sump pump, then it might have been done wrong! An incorrectly installed sump pump can break for any number of reasons.
