When to Replace a Sump Pump
Sump pumps can generally last about 10 years before parts like the electric motor, impeller, bearings, and casing begin to fail. Often there will be signs of a problem before the pump fails completely, and if you test it regularly, you may be able to avoid necessary flooding and damage. Consider a sump pump replacement when you notice any of the following signs of problems:
- Problems keeping up with the volume of flood water
- Unusual noises during operation like squealing, screeching, or grinding
- Excessive vibration during operation
- Excessive power draw or trouble starting
- Turning on and off too frequently
- Runs constantly or for long periods
- Casing has visible rust, cracks, or damage
