Most big box stores only offer a one-year warranty on a sump pump, but the manufacturer suggests for you to replace your sump about every five years. The float switch and the activation switch will probably need to be replaced more often than the actual sump pump. There is really no one answer to when your sump pump should be replaced. Like everything, there are a lot of factors that come into play. If a pump is older and hasn’t been used much, it tends to freeze up from corrosion and lack of use. On the other hand, if you live in a very wet area and your sump pump runs frequently, there is also a chance that parts could fail from high usage.
Sump Pumps operate by electricity. If there is a storm and you lose power, your sump pump will not work. This is why having a battery backup for your main sump pump is so important. If your power should fail, the battery backup would work until either the battery dies, or the power comes back on. Also, sometimes sump pumps fail. A battery backup would kick on should your main sump pump fail. It is an easier and cheaper alternative to a flooded basement.
Godby can install and replace sump pumps and battery backups for you. The sump pump manufacturers we use have 3-5 year warranties versus the big box store’s one year warranty. Plus, if something fails, you call us, Godby, instead of having to contact the manufacturer and figure out what to do.
When you have Godby install or replace your sump pump we will give you a high-water audible alarm. These alarms can be used around sump pumps, water heaters, and dehumidifiers. When the area around these devices becomes wet, an audible alarm goes off indicating there is water where there shouldn’t be and there is a problem. These alarms are sensitive and highly reliable.
