Sump Pump Replacement
Sump Pump Replacement in Baltimore & Annapolis MD and Surrounding Areas
The average lifespan of a sump pump is 7 to 10 years. It could be shorter or longer, depending on how much it has to work to keep your basement dry.
Sump pumps usually come with a warranty of two or three years, with some going as far as five years.
If your warranty has expired, it would be a good idea to replace your pump. Dealing with the replacement cost is nothing compared to the damage caused by a flooded basement.
Common Signs That Your Sump Pump Needs to Be Replaced
- Loud Noises – Sump pumps make noise, that’s a given. However, if your pump is making unusually loud gurgling, rattling and clanging noises, that could be an indicator that it needs replacement.
- Pump Clogging – A clogging pump will block your water from being discharged and may even unload it back into your basement.
- Old Sump Pump – Pumps working for over 10 years are certain to be worn out and at risk of failure. Having an old pump replaced could avoid costly basement damage.
