At A+ Derr, we are just that! A team of expert plumbers who can be there for you any time, day or night. Give us a call today and we can get started immediately. 

What Is A Sump Pump? 

A sump pump is a device that can remove excess water from your underground spaces—like basements, crawlspaces, and more. The device works by sitting slightly lower in the ground where water can collect. Once the water has risen past a certain point, the sump pump will trigger. When the sump pump has been triggered by the water level, it will begin pumping out water into a designated area outside and away from your home. This is all done in an attempt to keep excess water out of your home and away from the foundation of your property’s structure. 

What Are The Most Common Issues With Sump Pumps?

While sump pumps are necessary for homes with underground elements like basements, there are times when they may not be functioning as they should. While there are many things that can go wrong with sump pumps, here are some of the most common issues we see with these devices in Louisville and Evansville:

Power Failure

Without power, a sump pump is useless. Most sump pumps rely fully on electricity in order to run. There are some sump pumps that can be set up with a backup battery that will kick in as soon as the power goes out. In the event that there is a major storm that knocks out the power, this can be a lifesaver, as the sump pump can continue pumping out the incoming water even without electricity. 

Switch Problems

As mentioned earlier, a sump pump switches on after the water level reaches a certain height. The mechanism that is responsible for switching the sump pump on and off can malfunction, become stuck, or deteriorate over time. When this happens, it is essential that this problem is remedied immediately. Failing to do so can mean the sump pump will not turn on when needed. 

Clogged or Frozen Discharge Lines

The discharge line is responsible for moving the water from the inside of your home to the outside. Unfortunately, these lines can become clogged over time. As dirt and debris begin to get stuck in the line, it can become more and more difficult for the water to flow freely from your basement to the dispersal area. Once the clog becomes significant enough, water will stop flowing completely. Similarly, if the area gets cold enough, water might freeze in the discharge line and prevent water from escaping. 

Old or Damaged Pumps

Finally, one of the most common issues we see is simply that the pump is outdated or damaged. When this is true, sump pumps tend to run inefficiently, or stop working altogether. As sump pumps age, they can begin to lose power, meaning they have to work longer and harder to remove water from your home. Past a certain point, it is better to replace your sump pump to ensure the water that seeps into your home can effectively be removed. 

Regardless of the sump pump problem you are facing, you can rest knowing that A+ Derr is always here to help our community! So whether the sump pump needs to be replaced, or the discharge line needs to be cleared, our team can take care of it for you fast. 

Signs Your Sump Pump Might Need Repair

While there are multiple issues that you can experience with a sump pump, sometimes it can be hard to tell when your sump pump isn’t performing perfectly. If you’re worried that your sump pump might have some damage that needs to be addressed, take a look at these signs that you can start watching for:

Strange Noises

Are there strange noises coming from your sump pump? Grinding and whirring sounds are likely signs that

something is wrong with the sump pump itself. If you hear bubbling or gurgling noises, there is a chance that the discharge line is not functioning perfectly. Either way, strange noises coming from your sump pump area are almost always a sign that something is going on with your unit.

Continuous Running

As mentioned above, your sump pump runs when water rises above a certain level. Sometimes, however, damage to the pump or to the switching mechanism can lead to the pump running continuously, even once the water falls below the threshold. When this happens, your sump pump will need immediate repair to ensure it does not continue running, even without water present.
