Signs of a Failing Sump Pump
There are a few symptoms to watch out for if you are concerned about whether
your sump pump is still an effective layer of protection against flooding.
Obviously, no one wants their sump pump to be unreliable during an emergency.
Be on the lookout for these common signs that your sump pump is reaching
the end of its life.
Loud Noises: If the motor is beginning to whine loudly, this is likely a sign that it
will not last much longer.
Vibrations: If the unit has a damaged impeller, it will rattle and make loud noises
as the fan blades attempt to empty water out of the basin.
Clogs & Frozen Lines: Clogged discharge lines can inflict severe damage quickly by overworking
the motor and potentially burning it out.
Running Sporadically: Something may be wrong with the wiring in your unit if it is turning on
and off without clear reasons. This can also indicate that your unit is
too weak in terms of horsepower to empty the basin.
Unit is 7 Years or Older: Older sump pumps will begin to work harder to empty the basin until they
are running non-stop and the motor burns out.
