Sump Pump Maintenance

Sump Pump Maintenance

How to Maintain Your Sump Pump

Fall or Spring is a great season to check on one of the most important but mostly forgotten about appliances in your home: the sump pump.

With the cold from winter and sizzling heat in the summers, sump pumps are heavily relied upon in the spring months to keep homes dry. This makes spring an ideal time to perform maintenance on your sump pump, as well as evaluate your sump pump needs and consider upgrading or adding a battery backup to your current system.

Consider these basic maintenance tips to keep your sump pump in working order:

  • Clean the pump inlet screen and sump pit
  • Make sure the power cord is plugged in
  • Test the pump by dumping a bucket of water in the sump pit to raise the float and turn on the pump
  • Remove the sump pump from the pit and give it a thorough cleaning and inspection
  • Grease the pump bearings if needed

These are very simple, and should ideally be done every couple of months to ensure the sump pump is working properly.

As a real estate agent I need trades that can respond fast with detailed estimates. Parobek exceeded both of the expectations I had for detail response time and estimates. I will use them again and will refer them to future clients.

I called Parobek Plumbing and Air Conditioning late this morning because my clogged toilet wasn't unclogging with the methods that normally work. It was important because I only have one toilet and work from home. It's 3 o'clock and Daniel left about 20 minutes ago and I have my unclogged toilet working perfectly now.

The worker looked for a plumbing leak and was very thorough, patient, and kind. He did not stop until I found the problem and took the time to explain it to me in detail. I would hire him again. Very good.

Today's service was just a switch-out of a faucet. I'm very satisfied. Within the last week, I had a number of of jobs done, including installation of a reverse osmosis system. I have been exceedingly pleased. The service was prompt, professional and everyone was courteous and knowledgeable. Thanks.
