Should You Get A New Sump Pump?

Sump pumps are essential for a safe, dry home. They are the mechanism responsible for pumping water away from the foundation of your home and preventing flooding. But how do you know when it’s time to get a new sump pump?

At Carbone’s Home Solutions, we understand that having a dependable sump pump is one of the most important safety investments you can make in your home. We are Chicagoland’s 5 star rated and fully insured handyman service, and we want to help you make the right decision when it comes to your sump pump.

Signs It’s Time To Replace Your Sump Pump

When it comes to sump pumps, prevention is key. Sump pumps should be checked regularly for any signs of wear and tear or malfunctioning parts. But what signs should you look out for? Here are a few common signs that indicate it’s time to replace your sump pump:

  • Your sump pump is more than five years old.
  • You hear loud or strange noises coming from the sump pump.
  • Your basement floods even though the sump pump is on.
  • The float switch isn’t working properly.
  • Water starts collecting around the sump pit.

If you see any of these signs, then it’s time to get a new sump pump. It is important to take action quickly before any further damage is done to your home—especially if your current sump pump is more than five years old. An older sump pump will not be as efficient at pumping water away from your home as a newer model. And if repairs are necessary, they may cost as much as a new unit would cost anyway.

Benefits Of Installing A New Sump Pump

A new sump pump offers numerous benefits for your home. Not only will it be more energy efficient, but it will also be able to handle more water per hour than an older model. This means that it can prevent flooding in your basement faster and more effectively than an older model could. Additionally, newer models come with features such as backup batteries that can keep the sump pump running during power outages or other emergencies.

Finally, having a reliable and efficient sump pump gives you peace of mind knowing that your home is safe from potential flooding or other water damage issues that could occur if the sump pump fails. That’s why at Carbone’s Home Solutions, we believe investing in a high-quality sump pump is worth every penny!

If you have any questions about whether or not it’s time to get a new sump pump, please don’t hesitate to contact us today! Our experienced technicians are always ready and willing to help answer any questions you may have about replacing or installing a new sump pump in your home.
