How long does the sump pumps last?

  Just like other appliances and equipment in your home, your sump pumps have a limited lifespan. On average, it lasts about 8 to 10 years. Unfortunately, it's often difficult to tell if your sump pump has malfunctioned until it stops working altogether. Once that happens, your home and belongings can be at risk of water damage. It is essential to have a backup sump system installed in your home. It can help detect any potential failure of the primary pump, and prevent your basement from flooding. This is the only reliable method to ensure your primary sump pump works correctly.

 The installer must be aware of the pumps' specifications and the materials specifications (What is the capacity of the pipes?) he is using to ensure and maximize their efficiency. Most sump pumps require a 1.5-inch PVC discharge pipe, but some need a 2-inch pipe. Depending on the capacity of the primary and backup pumps, the size of the PVC pipes used should be adjusted to maximize pumping capacity.

Sump Pump Installation

  It is essential to consider external components to ensure your sump pump system's proper and efficient functioning. One recommendation is to maintain a 2-inch freeze gap between the underground discharge lines and the sump pump discharge that comes from the basement or crawl space. This gap allows water to splash outside around the pipe by the house in case the underground drainage lines become clogged or frozen. This will prevent any potential damage to your system.
