Typical Sump Pump Repairs in the New Holland Area
Not sure what your sump pump problem is? Our experts at The Witmer Company can help diagnose and solve the problem with a fast repair. The most common sump pump repairs we see are with:
When the float isn’t working, it won’t trigger the pump to start. If it’s stuck, the pump can’t remove the water, flooding your basement. Besides the water damage, the area that floods will need extensive cleaning and sanitation to make it safe.
The Sump Pit
The sump pit is the hole in which the sump pump sits. Over time, it can fill with debris that could interfere with the pump’s operation. Items from the pit can damage the internal parts if the pump pulls them inside. Keeping the pit clean is part of sump pump maintenance, whether performed by you or a plumbing pro from The Witmer Company.
The Check Valve
If the check valve isn’t operating correctly, it may need to be replaced. We test its operation by pouring water into the sump pit. If the water returns to the pit after being pumped, we’ll inspect this valve and replace it.
The impeller has blades that can catch debris flowing into the pump. It’s possible for the debris to get caught in the blades, which slows the impeller’s action. Keeping the sump pit clean goes a long way toward smooth impeller operation, but if the incoming water is laden with debris and the screen isn’t intact, the impeller may suffer.
The Power Supply
Sometimes there’s an electrical problem that could start at the circuit breaker, plug, outlet, or components inside the sump pump. We can identify the problem quickly using our test equipment and either fix the problem or take steps to repair or replace the pump.
