Sump Pump Fail? Water in your basement? Need Help now?

The rainy season brings with it the possibility of wet basements.  Having a working, well maintained sump pump can be the difference between a dry basement and a middle of the night emergency.  Fortunately sump pumps are typically reliable, but as with any equipment, regular maintenance will help ensure your sump pump operation.

A couple of things that you can do check your sump pump operations:

  • Check your power supply. Sump Pumps should be plugged into a GFCI.  Make sure the breakers have not tripped and are working!
  • Check for debris in the bottom of the crock. Rocks, toys, anything that falls into the pit can block the inlet and potentially cause damage to the pump.
  • If float mechanism is detached from the pump, ensure it is not catching on anything, upright and operational.
  • Pour a bucket of water into the crock to make sure the pump kicks on and drains quickly. If it doesn’t, you should have it serviced!
  • Ensure that the vent hole is clear of debris.
  • If you live in an area with frequent power outages, consider a battery backup system.

Don’t have time (or the inlcination) to maintain your sump pump, but don’t want to risk a sump pump failure? No problem, That Handyman has you covered!

That Plumber was able to completely replace the drain trap and water lines under my kitchen sink in our circa 1930 home in under an hour. I appreciate the way Jason was able to get the entire job done, cleaned up, and had our sink useable again so quickly!

Came out on an emergency call to fix a broken water line that was connected to our washer. Water was everywhere and we had to turn off the main water line to the house. It wasn’t a call we wanted to make at 11p.m. on a Friday night but we didn’t have a choice. Fixed in less than an hour. Jay and his crew are the best! We trust them and they do awesome work.

That Plumber (Jason) did an excellent job getting our clogged drain open and flowing. I highly recommend him for your drain cleaning needs. Thank you Jason for a job well done!
