What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is the most effective way to prevent ground water from infiltrating your basement and causing a flood. Designed to sit at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space, a sump pump quickly removes water by pumping into the nearest detention pond, dry well or storm drain. While most new homes with basements are equipped with sump pumps, if one is not located in an older home, they can be retrofitted to prevent any potential flooding. But chances are your home has a sump pump already. Roto-Rooter of Hartford has plumbing experts who specialize in sump pump replacement and repair to keep your home fully protected during instances of heavy rainfall when ground water can flood basements. See our helpful video tips on the best ways to test and maintain your sump pump. 

Helpful Sump Pump Maintenance Tips

From testing your sump pump regularly to learning more about the benefits of having a battery backup system for your current pump, whatever your question – the plumbing experts at Roto-Rooter of Hartford are ready to help. From replacement to repairs on your existing sump pump, we are available when you need us most, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week including weekends and holidays. Follow these helpful tips to best maintain your sump pump and extend its longevity:

  • Test your sump pump by pouring a five gallon bucket of water into the sump pit. If working properly, the sump pump should turn on, remove the water from the sump pit and turn off within seconds. Check that the float and the check valve also move freely.
  • Cleaning your sump pump is an easy process. Remove any debris (dirt, gravel etc.) from the sump pit to improve upon your sump pump’s performance. Make sure that the discharge line is clear of any obstructions so the water can freely move through the line and away from your basement or crawlspace. Cleaning you equipment can easily be done on your own, but if you feel more comfortable hiring a professional, our team at Roto-Rooter can help.
