If you own a property with a sump system, it’s in your best interests to ensure that the pump and its related plumbing are always in top working condition. The team at JNR Plumbing is here to act as your partners in caring for your home including the parts your sump pump protects. We offer the following maintenance tips in hopes that you can avoid the hassle of seeking out urgent plumbing repairs.
Keep the Sump Area Neat
One of the leading causes of failure related to sump pumps is the entrapment of foreign material inside the pit. To avoid this problem, dirt, rags, floor sweepings, and other loose items must not be allowed to enter the sump where they can accumulate over time then clog or damage the pump and system.
Inspect It Yourself
You should periodically inspect your pump and lift the float to make sure it turns on. You can also call on our plumbing company to handle the work if you’re not comfortable doing it yourself.
Schedule Regular Tune-ups
Our team’s menu of routine plumbing services includes sump pump inspections. As a responsible property owner, you should set up periodic service calls for us to look over the float, piping, and pump mechanism to ensure that the system is ready to go when you need it most.
