Expert Sump Pump Repair and Replacement in West Chester

You might not think about your sump pump until you need it. Then you expect it’s draining properly so your West Chester basement doesn’t flood.

Sump pumps can stop working for a couple different reasons.

We’ve done it all. If your pump isn’t working like it should, call the Experts at Wesley Wood Service Experts to find a solution to the problem.

Some Likely Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit working for a few different reasons, like:

  • Power loss
  • Ignoring maintenance
  • The unit is too small
  • Sloppy installation
  • Icy or plugged up drain lines
  • Age (the average life span is 10 years)

We’ll examine your pump during our visit and provide preventive maintenance suggestions, helping make sure your sump pump won’t break down when you need it most.

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a number of easy things you can do to make sure your sump pump is primed for efficiency.

  1. Check that the cord is in decent shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event of power surges.
  3. Verify the pump is positioned correctly and not leaning to one side as this can cause the pump to not turn on when required.
  4. If the pump hasn’t been on recently, drop a bucket of water into the pit to verify the pump is actually working and removes the water quickly.
  5. In dry weather, remove the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can pull small stones into the grate over time.
  6. Check the discharge pipe’s vent hole is clear.
