Expert Sump Pump Repair and Replacement in Fort Worth

You might not think about your sump pump until it rains hard. Then you expect it’s working like it should so your Fort Worth basement doesn’t flood.

Sump pumps can stop running for several various reasons.

We’ve witnessed it all. If your pump isn’t running like it should, call the Experts at Calverley Service Experts to determine the problem.

We’ll inspect your pump during our visit and provide you with preventive maintenance advice, so it won’t go out when you need it most.

Common Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can cease operating for several different reasons:

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

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few easy things you can do to verify your sump pump is prepared for efficiency.

  1. Make sure the cord is in good shape.
  2. Plug it into a GFCI outlet in the event 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 verify the pump starts and drains the water quickly.
  5. During drought-like conditions, pull out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom since it can get small stones in the grate over time.
  6. Confirm the discharge pipe’s vent hole isn’t plugged.
