What do you need to know about sump pump servicing?
A sump pump is a machine that requires periodic servicing in order to stay in tip top condition. A faulty sump pump could seriously compromise the waterproofing in your property, resulting in dangerous and expensive structural problems further down the line. The unit itself will usually come with instructions that say how often it needs to be serviced, though the typical recommendation is once a year. You may also have been told when it was originally installed. Speaking of when the unit was first installed, be sure to check if you still have an intact warranty!
Typically, a sump pump servicing will involve removing the pump, a thorough cleaning and de-scaling, an inspection for perimeter damage and a check that the alarm and backup systems are still working, though of course different models will vary. Any broken parts should also be replaced, though this will add to your quote. Be careful to check your quote: if replacement parts are needed, your Pro should keep you constantly updated.
The cost of servicing a sump pump will depend on the make of the pump, as well as the number of pumps that your setup has. Larger basements or properties in more vulnerable areas may require several sumps in order to prevent serious water damage. Based on this, you could expect to pay between £150 and £400 for a sump pump servicing.
