Rye Sump Pump Installation
Our Plumbers Help You Prevent Flooding
In Rye, we experience a lot of heavy rainfall and snow. In order to protect your home from possible flooding and water damage, it’s important to install a sump pump in your basement and ensure that it is properly functioning. During the rainy season, water collects in a carefully constructed sump pit, and the sump pump works by removing excess water from your property. At Drain Doctor, our plumbers have more than 20 years of experience installing, repairing, and replacing sump pumps.
Maintaining Your Sump Pump
Because it is so vital for flood prevention, it’s important to ensure that your sump pump is working properly. And like many other plumbing appliances, they often require cleaning due to clogs.
Common causes of clogs include:
- Waste from the water in the sump pit
- Sand or other types of sediment
- Pebbles or gravel
In the event your sump pump has a complete blockage, it could stop operating and put your home and health at risk. We suggest that you check it every few months to ensure it is working properly. An easy way to test if it is functioning is to pour water in the pit until your pump powers on.
Symptoms of Sump Pump Issues
While they are designed to last a while, it’s not uncommon for sump pumps to need repairs.
Our expert plumbers recommend you call us if you’re experiencing any of the following issues:
- Your sump pump does not power on
- Your sump pump will not shut off
- Your pump makes odd sounds while it runs
- Your sump pump has visible damage
- Your basement is flooding due to lack of proper draining
When we arrive at your property, we will first inspect your unit and determine whether it can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced. We will guide you through the entire process and discuss which replacement options would work best for you.
Why Does A Sump Pump Smell?
When a sump pump has issues it is possible it can develop an odd odor. Some of the causes for these odors are dry sump pumps, waste build up, dirty sump pump, or a cracked sump pump. Sump pumps function best with annual maintenance. Regular maintenance and cleaning of your sump pump will remove any odors that may occur.
