Common Sump Pump Problems
A sump pump can help prevent a plumbing emergency in your house by keeping excess water from entering your home. When this unit malfunctions, it can lead to extensive damage in your home. To avoid this, you need to schedule repairs at the first signs of an issue. Some common problems you might encounter can include:
- Power failures: Without a battery backup in place, a sump pump won’t be able to function during a power outage.
- Float valve issues: Make sure your float valve is free from any obstructions in order to avoid more serious problems.
- Underpowered pumps: If your unit is not the right size for your property you should replace it with the appropriate system.
- Frozen or clogged discharge pipe: Make sure your discharge pipes are clean and in proper working order to avoid more extreme issues.
- Worn out pump motors: If the motor in your system wears out, have a plumber inspect it to determine if the unit should be replaced.
Life Expectancy of Water Heaters
When you install a new water heater you may like to think the unit will last forever, or at least until you move out of your home, but like all appliances, a water heater has a lifespan. While all makes and models are different, most electric water heaters will last between 10 and 20 years - if they are properly maintained. Gas-powered units might have a shorter life expectancy.
