Sump Pump Installation in Dayton

Your sump pump is one of those systems you may not consider until you need it—then you cross your fingers it’s running as it should. The good news is that the experts at Stevenson Service Experts are here to help whether you decide on new sump pump installation, repair or replacement for your Dayton home.

Sump pumps can stop working for several of different reasons and we’ve probably witnessed it all. So, when your sump pump starts acting weird, give Stevenson Service Experts a call to schedule a visit and examine your issue.

During our visit, we can leave you with a few preventive maintenance hints to help certify your sump pump doesn’t leave you high and dry (or actually, quite the reverse) when you need it most. Our staff will examine your sump pump for appropriate operation and if we see any evidence of a possible issue, we’ll alert you immediately and discuss your options.

It is vital to note there are multiple very basic things that you can do to be confident you have your sump pump set up for efficiency:

  • Make sure the pump is plugged in to a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlet in case of power surges.
  • Ensure the cord is in good shape.
  • Be sure the pump is vertical and not tilting to one side as it can cause the sump pump to not activate when needed.
  • If it’s been some time since your sump pump has run, pour a bucket of water into the pit to make sure the pump starts and the water drains quickly.
  • When it’s going to be dry, pull out the sump pump and clean the grate on the bottom as it can draw small stones into the grate over time.
  • Make sure the vent hole in the discharge pipe is unclogged.
Because your sump pump is essentially a type of insurance to protect your living space and your belongings from what can be devastating water damage, look to the experts at Stevenson Service Experts to help ensure yours is doing its job.
