Flooding is a homeowner’s worst nightmare. While a sump pump is no guarantee of a dry basement, it’s a helping hand homeowners depend on. Anthony’s Plumbing is more than ready to provide sump pump repair in Tempe, AZ to keep your sump pump running year-round.
We will help make sure your sump pump is in good repair before floods threaten to enter your home once again. After all, water damage can be expensive to clean up. Don’t take that chance and call us for service at the first sign of a problem.
But when should you give our phones a ring? You may want to be on the lookout for a few signs, including:
- Switch Problems: The foremost cause of sump pump problems is in the switch. Your sump pumps float is responsible for the seamless operation of the on/off switch. The switch and the float arm rely on each other to operate effectively. A stuck switch usually happens when the pump shifts in the basin. This causes the float to lodge itself against the side of the pump. No worries – we can repair it.
- Lack of Routine Maintenance: Most sump pump manufacturers recommend quarterly maintenance. A few allow for an annual inspection. Ignoring the manufacturer’s routine maintenance recommendations is a leading cause of sump pump repair in Tempe, AZ. You can pick up the phone and call Anthony’s Plumbing to have your sump pump inspect for any problems.
- Clogged Discharge Lines: If the discharge line on your sump pump gets clogged, your system stops working. Period. It’s absolutely vital to keep dirt and debris away from that all important discharge pipe. A clogged discharge pipe can cause nasty flood water to flow back down the pipe and into your basement. We can help you avoid this catastrophe by making sure your discharge pipe is protected by a simple grate.
It is very important to make sure all your emergency equipment is in good working order year-round. You don’t want to find yourself in need of repair during your time of need. At Anthony’s Plumbing, we’re trained and equipped to inspect, maintain and repair your sump pump. Call us today and we’ll give you the best possible sump pump repair in Tempe, AZ!
