5 Sump Pump Issues That May Require A Visit From The Plumbing Pro.
- Overwhelmed by ground water
Sometimes, especially during the spring, when ground water levels are high the reliability of your sump pump may be putto the test. If your sump pump is running constantly there’s a good chance your sump pump is in danger of failing.
The Plumbing Pro suggests you have a plumber out to take a look at our sump pump. We might suggest a higher-capacity Zoeller pump, a new battery backup or even an additional sump pump installation. Give us a call.
- Clogged Sump Pumps and Switches
Your sump pump can get clogged with dirt and debris over time, especial if your sump doesn’t have a lid. Mechanical issues and age can also create jams that lead to failure, even flooding.
The Plumbing Pro suggests you create a repair/maintenance and inspection calendar. We would be glad to set up a visit with one of our plumbers.
- Frozen or Clogged Discharge Lines
If a sump pumps discharge lines get clogged or freeze your system will fail.
The Plumbing Pro suggests a wide variety of solutions to fix issues like this but will start by checking whether your discharge line was installed properly. In fact, though clogging and freezing can occur in mostly happens on lines that properly installed. Call today 816-763-8200
- Power Lost to the Sump Pump
Sump pumps can lose power and put your basement in danger of flooding. When the same storm that dumps inches of water on your home, also brings down the power lines, and you do not a battery backup, you are living on the edge.
The Plumbing Pro suggests you immediately install a batter backup. If your power goes down, your sump pump can still do its job or removing unwanted water from around your foundation. We can even install a redundant secondary sump pump too.
- Constantly running Sump Pump
If your sump pump is running continuously or far to often you may have a stuck switch, broken check valve or your sump pit liner is incorrectly sized.
The Plumbing Pro suggests you set up a free estimate and evaluation of your system before it fails to protect your home. Call 816-763-8200.

“I had sump pump and building code issues from years ago that needed to be corrected. Terry and Scott had to get very inventive to resolve these, and they did! It was not easy, but they persevered and got all issues fixed. They had to cut through dry wall and out through the back of the house. They did it with minimum cuts and left the place clean when done. Also left me with advice on maintenance. Great job!” July 22, 2019
