Sump Pump Service Arlington Heights

Keeping your basement or the crawl space under your home is sometimes a constant battle of you verse Mother Nature.  Sump Pumps and Ejector Pumps are the troops you need in order to fight against the raging storms. Sump Pumps take the water that is collecting under your home and pump it out the street every time the water level gets too high.  Sump Pumps are a necessity for any home that is on the bottom of a hill, or any home where water pools for days after a storm.  However, before you can decide what the best pump is for your home there are few things you should know about sump pumps. 

Types of Sump Pumps

There are two main types of sump pumps that are installed in homes in Arlington Heights:

Submersible Sump Pumps: These are sump pumps that sit down inside a pit or a reservoir in your basement.  They are waterproof and their motors are strong.  These sump pumps generally see more use because of where they always stay, therefore you might have to replace a submersible sump pump more often than a pedestal sump pump. 

Pedestal Sump Pumps: Unlike their submersible counterparts, these generally sit above the water and have a hose that goes into the area where the water pools.  When the “float” is triggered these motors take the water in and eject it away from the home.  These sump pumps generally last longer, but are only for areas that might have minor flooding during the storms. 

Ejector Pumps:  Ejector pumps are for your sewer lines.  There is a definite difference between ejector pumps and sump pumps.  Ejector Pumps generally service the greywater in your home from the sewer lines, whereas sump pumps generally process more water from outside the hoe coming in. Ejector pumps have caps on them to prevent sewer gasses from leaking out and a vent pipe.  

Whether you have a sump pump or ejector pump it is important to have one of them in your home.  When you break it down, the cost of a sump pump or ejector pump can save you thousands of dollars in repair flood problems in your basement! 

 

Signs Your Sump Pump Might Need To Be Replaced

Mas Plumbing is the number one choice for businesses and residents in Arlington Heights because when we help people we focus on preventative measures than just a “quick fix” to the problem.  We want you to know the ways you can spot your plumbing might be having problems so you can get it fixed as soon as possible to prevent bigger and more costly damage later on! 

Here are some of the warning signs you can spot so you can tell when your sump pump is needing to get replaced: 

  1. Making Strange Noises: If there is a grinding sound or your sump pump motor then you could be hearing a bad impeller. If there is loud noise coming from the motor it could be a bad bearing. 
  2. Infrequent Pump Usage: If there are times that your pump is not running this could actually shorten the lifespan of your sump pump. 
  3. Runs at an Irregular Cycle: When your sump pump is running at different intervals this means that the float switch is probably inaccurately adjusted. 
  4. Hard Vibrations: If your sump pump is vibrating violently when it is running this could mean something is stuck in the fan.  When there is a heavy rain in Arlington Heights, sometimes debris can get stuck in the pit that a submersible sump pump sits in.  If debris gets into the fan this will significantly reduce the lifespan of your sump pump. 
  5. Rust:  When you notice rust on your sump pump it is time to start considering getting a new pump.  
  6. Age:  Most sump pumps have an average lifespan of about 7 years.  If your sump pump is older than that it is time to replace the unit. 
  7. Doesn’t Turn Over: If your unit is getting power but it is not turning over this means that there is an electrical problem inside the sump pump unit itself.
  8. Excessive Power Surges:  Just like other electrical units in your home, your sump pump is susceptible to power surges as well that can ruin the motor.  This is why it is always good to get a sump pump with a great battery back up.
