How to Tell If Your Home Needs a Sump Pump

If your basement or crawl space is prone to flooding or dampness after heavy rainfall or snowmelt, you could benefit from installing a sump pump. A musty odor or visible mold and mildew, often caused by standing water or high humidity levels, may also be a sign that your home needs a sump pump. Additionally, if you notice water stains on the walls or floors of your basement, or if your basement floor feels damp or shows signs of efflorescence – a white, powdery residue – these are also strong indicators that water intrusion is an issue that needs addressing.

Even if you haven't experienced severe flooding, a sump pump can serve as a valuable precautionary measure to protect your home from water damage. Homes located in low-lying areas, or those with poor drainage systems, are at greater risk of basement flooding and could significantly benefit from having a sump pump. 

If your home needs the kind of protection that a sump pump can provide, call Facilities Plumbing & Drain at (650) 750-7144 today to request a free consultation!

Making Sure Your Sump Pump is Working Correctly

Ensuring your sump pump is working correctly is crucial for preventing basement flooding and water damage. If you suspect your sump pump is not operating the way it should be, DIY testing is simple and can save you a lot of trouble. Begin by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump should activate and quickly drain the water. If it doesn't, there could be an issue. Additionally, inspect the pump's power source to ensure it is properly plugged in and functioning. 

Symptoms of a broken sump pump include: 

  • Excessive noise: Loud or unusual sounds might signal mechanical issues.
  • Infrequent cycling: The pump turns on and off sporadically or not at all.
  • Prolonged operation: The pump runs for an extended period without efficiently removing water.
  • Visible rust: Rust on the pump or its components could indicate corrosion affecting performance.
  • Overheating: The pump feels excessively hot, which may signal it’s overworked or has electrical issues.
  • Basement flooding: Water accumulation in your basement even when the pump is running.
