Why You Need Sump Pump Maintenance
One way to lower the chance of your pump failing is with routine maintenance. At JR’s Plumbing and Heating, we make it our priority to ensure your basement or crawl space keeps dry. When we arrive to perform maintenance, we will complete the following tasks:
Test and Clean Your System
There are three primary components that our technicians will inspect – the float switch, the intake valve, and the impeller. We will examine the pump for any possible issues, cleaning them to ensure they are functioning normally. Once they confirm everything is in working order, they will clean the sump pump liner of any sediment.
Check the Discharge Line
If it’s one of the cold months of the year, we will inspect the line for freezing. Otherwise, we will just ensure that water flows freely without any blockages.
Maintain Crawl Space Liner
If you have a crawl space, we will check the liner and any other components you may have installed there.
The goal of a routine maintenance visit is to check that everything is working properly. In the case that our technicians observe problems that could arise in the near future, they will inform you and also suggest ways to address these issues fast!
