Expert Sump Pump Repair and Replacement in Clearwater

You likely don’t think about your sump pump until it rains hard. Then you hope it’s draining properly so your Clearwater 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 Midway Services to fix the problem.

Some Likely Causes of Sump Pump Failure

Sump pumps can quit running for a couple of different reasons, including:

  • Power loss
  • Ignoring maintenance
  • The unit is too small
  • Sloppy installation
  • Frozen or blocked drain lines
  • Age (the average pump lasts 10 years)

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

Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist

There are a few simple things you can do to ensure your sump pump is prepared 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 tilting to one side as this can cause the pump to not turn on when needed.
  4. If it’s been awhile since the pump has run, drop a bucket of water into the pit to check the pump is actually working and pumps out the water efficiently.
  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 free of obstructions.
