Sump pumps last about 10 years, on average, in Edmonton. If a sump pump is damaged or experiences more use than usual, it may need to be replaced sooner.
Unfortunately, it is not always obvious when a sump pump has reached the end of its life. In many cases, homeowners don’t realize they need to replace their sump pump until it fails to do its job - and they’re left with a mess on their hands. To prevent your sump pump from failing when you need it most, be sure to keep an eye out for these warning signs:
- No water in the sump pit when your pump is running
- Musty or dank odour in your basement
- Strange noises coming from your sump pump
- The pump doesn’t run automatically
If you suspect that your sump pump needs to be replaced, call a plumber in Edmonton as soon as possible. At ProSolutions Plumbing, we will ensure that your sump pump is running well, repair it if it’s not, or completely replace the unit if necessary.
