Sump Pump Services

Heavy rainfall is quite common in the Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area, particularly during the summer months. Fortunately, most homes are equipped with a sump pump — a device that removes water from basements and crawl spaces that can result from heavy rain or other forms of flooding. 
 
There are two types of sump pumps you’ll typically find in residential homes:
 
Submersible pumps
Pedestal pumps 
 
Sump pumps give homeowners peace of mind knowing their homes will be protected from flooding and water damage in the event of severe storms.
 
Avoid expensive repairs and damage to important belongings. Call CroppMetcalfe’s team of expert plumbers if you’re in need of sump pump services, like sump pump repair or replacement. 
 

Sump Pump Repair

 
Preventative maintenance is the key to ensuring your sump pump will function properly in the event of heavy rainfall. We advise that all homeowners test their sump pump between heavy storms to make sure it’s working correctly. 
 
How to test your sump pump:
 
Remove the sump pump cover 
Pour a few gallons of water into the basin
See if the pump engages
 
Tip: Have someone else watch the return pipe to make sure the water is flowing away from your home as intended
 
A functioning sump pump will automatically engage, drain the basin, and then disengage. If you’re running into any roadblocks while testing the pump, have one of our 5-star technicians check to see if repairs are necessary. 
 
Irregular cycling and strange noises or vibration are also indicators that sump pump repair may be required.  
 

Sump Pump Replacement 

 
Even well-maintained sump pumps only last around 7 years, and this shelf life could be reduced even further if the device is used infrequently. 
 
If you haven’t replaced your sump pump in the last 10 years, or your pump experiences recurring problems, you may need a sump pump replacement. 
 
 
CroppMetcalfe’s plumbing experts can assess the type of sump pump service you require — whether you need replacement parts or a new system altogether.
