Sump Pump Repairs for Crawl Spaces

Crawl Space Sump Pump Repair

For many homeowners, a sump pump sits silent and still beneath the floor of the crawl space, unassuming and unnoticed until disaster strikes. The rain falls, the snow melts, and hopefully, the sump pump comes to life to save your cardboard boxes.

Like any other home appliance, a sump pump will need maintenance every once in a while. This is especially true due to the nature of the machine, sitting partly under the ground, sucking water up and out of the range of the foundation.

Common Issues with Sump Pumps

There are several issues that commonly affect sump pumps, such as:

  • Overwhelmed Pumps - Sometimes, the pump that was installed is not strong enough to handle the demand of the water. This can happen due to shifting water tables, or just lack of foresight during installation. There are some areas with enough demand that more than one pump must be installed.
  • Pump Burnout - With any machine, faulty components can cause the system to fail. The usual culprit with sump pumps is the float switch. Many times, it’s found that the pump installed during construction was made with cheap components, leading to eventual pump failure.
  • Power Loss- A pump needs the power to run, and without it, your crawl space is no longer protected from flooding. There are a variety of reasons pumps lose power, from a tripped circuit breaker to a total power outage.
  • Clogged Intake - If the intake valve becomes clogged, the pump will be prevented from extracting water to pump it away from the home, leaving the water to sit, or worse, rise.
  • Frozen or Clogged Discharge - The discharge line is the pipe that carries damaging water from the pump to the outside. This pipe could become clogged with dirt, rocks, roots and other such debris--and in the winter, the line could become frozen and burst, necessitating repair.

For a comprehensive diagnosis, it’s always best to reach out to an experienced professional, and the experts at HomePro Match are here to help!
