Sump Pump Maintenance

Typically, sump pumps are low maintenance appliances. At Pacific Coast Plumbing, we suggest that you treat your sump pump once per year to ensure that there are no problems of build up.

When it is time to check your sump pump, here are a few things that our plumbers will look for:

  • Discharge Line – We will check inside the discharge line for build up of hard water or frozen water.  If we do find these issues, we will unclog the vent hole in the line to prevent further issues.
  • Inlet Screen – We will check the inlet screen for residue or debris. This is recommended to be checked more frequently, as build up can happen faster in the screen than in other parts of the sump pump.
  • Float Component – This component will alert your system of excess water. We will check that it is unobstructed.
  • Pit – The pit of the system is where the water sits. We will remove any visible build up such as mud or stones. We will also pour water into the pit as to simulate excess water. This will help us test every component of the system to ensure it is working properly.
