You are not alone if you have found yourself muttering those works as you unplug and re-plug your sump pump into an outlet. Several common issues can plague the average sump pump, including:
A Stuck Float – This sounds like a minor issue that you can easily correct. However, unless you are standing at the pump when it occurs, the problem will likely destroy the pump motor. This destruction begins when the stuck float fails to disengage the motor when there is no more water in the sump pit. So the motor continues to cycle, but with no water to cool the motor, it quickly overheats. The two options are to replace the motor or the entire sump pump when this happens.
The Motor Is Running, But No Water Is Moving – When you arrive at the sump pump and hear the motor running, but the water level in the sump pit is not decreasing, there is a severe problem or two occurring. The intake or discharge of the pump could be clogged, or the impeller could be damaged. But like the stuck float, the long-term concern is burning up the motor with no water moving through the pump.
Short Cycling – This is when the pump turns on and then off very rapidly for an extended period of time. The problem is likely a leak in the discharge hose refilling the sump hole. Unfortunately, this issue will overwork the sump pump and limit the water being removed from the basement, resulting in a costly flood.
When you notice any issues with your sump pump, unplug the unit to avoid further damage and call Country Gentlemen Plumbing at (315) 640-3987 for professional sump pump service in Syracuse.
