Your sump pump is one of those systems you may not think about until you need it—then you hope it’s operating as it should. The good news is that the professionals at Winnipeg Supply Service Experts are here to help whether you need new sump pump installation, repair or replacement for your Winnipeg home.
Sump pumps can stop running for several of different reasons and we’ve possibly witnessed it all. So, when your sump pump starts acting up, give Winnipeg Supply Service Experts a call to schedule a visit and investigate your issue.
During our visit, we can provide you with various preventive maintenance hints to help guarantee your sump pump doesn’t leave you high and dry (or specifically, quite the opposite) when you need it most. Our team will check your sump pump for proper operation and if we see any evidence of a impending mishap, we’ll alert you immediately and discuss your options.
It is vital to remember there are multiple very basic things that you can do to make sure you have your sump pump set up for efficiency:
- Identify the pump is plugged in to a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlet in case of power surges.
- Ensure the cord is in good shape.
- Be sure the pump is upright and not falling to one side since it can cause the sump pump to not activate when needed.
- If it’s been some time since your sump pump has run, pour a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump starts and the water drains quickly.
- When it’s going to be dry, pull out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom as it can draw small stones into the grate over time.
- Make sure the vent hole in the discharge pipe is unclogged.
