Tips on Sump Pump Maintenance

The sump pump is in place to stop water from getting into your basement. Thus, it’s imperative to have sump pump maintenance in Leawood, KS, courtesy of Inception Plumbing to keep it working optimally.

How to Maintain Your Sump Pump

Keep the Pump Clean – Once a year, it’s advised that you call for sump pump services in Leawood, KS. We have the skills and expertise to figure out exactly what needs to be done to keep it in good running condition. 

If we find any major issues, we will also be able to conduct a sump pump replacement in Leawood, KS.

The Pit – To make sure that your sump pump is working properly, the pit needs to be the right size. If it’s not, we will be able to correct this problem, which might include a new sump pump installation in Leawood, KS.

The Check Valve – The check valve needs to be functioning properly to see to it that water in the discharge pipe doesn’t flow back into the pit once the pump turns off.

The Cover – Your sump pump needs a removable cover to ensure that water doesn’t evaporate into your basement. We will ensure that your pump has one installed and that it fits correctly.

Where the Water Discharges – The water discharge from your sump pump should be at least 20 feet away from your home. If it’s not, this could result in water draining back toward your house. When we come out to do sump pump maintenance, we’ll ensure that your discharge location is in the right spot and move it if it’s not.

The Backup Power Source – Since the power might go off during a storm or flooding, it’s imperative that your pump has a backup source. We can ensure that your sump pump backup system in Leawood, KS, keeps working when you need it most.
