Expert Sump Pump Repair and Replacement in Voorhees

You might not think about your sump pump until you need it. Then you expect it’s running properly so your Voorhees basement doesn’t sustain water damage.

Sump pumps can stop running for a couple of different reasons.

We’ve witnessed it all. If your pump isn’t working properly, get in touch with the Experts at Atmostemp Service Experts to determine the problem.

We’ll take a look at your pump during our visit and offer preventive maintenance tips, so it won’t go out when you need it most.

Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can stop operating for several different reasons:

  • Power interruption
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Too small of a unit
  • Incorrect installation
  • Switch issues
  • Icy or clogged discharge lines
  • Age (average life span is 10 years)

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

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

  1. Ensure the cord is in acceptable shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in case of power surges.
  3. Verify the pump is vertical and not tilting to one side, since this can trigger the pump to not turn on when called for.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, pour a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump turns on and drains the water efficiently.
  5. During arid weather, pull out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can get small stones in the grate over time.
  6. Make sure the discharge pipe’s vent hole isn’t plugged.
