Your sump pump: It’s vital to prevent flooding in your home, but it isn’t something you use or see every day. That doesn’t make it any less important, though, especially since it’s working constantly to collect groundwater before it becomes a threat to your home. And, if there is heavy rain, your sump pump will collect any water that might flood your home and redirect it away. As such an important part of your home’s flood prevention plan, if your sump pump breaks and is in need of repair, it’s important to call a trusted plumber right away. Meetze Plumbing offers same-day service to homeowners in the Irmo, Columbia, and Lexington areas, so your sump pump issues can be resolved quickly.

Signs Your Sump Pump Needs Repairs
Since your sump pump isn’t in front of you on a daily basis, it can be hard to tell when it needs to be repaired. Here are some of the most common signs that you should call a plumber for sump pump repairs:
Things Are Looking Empty: If your sump pump looks like it’s running but the sump pit has no water in it, then there’s a problem. This problem can range from a quick fix to a more complicated repair, but either way, it’s important to call in a professional.
Things Are Getting Smelly: If you notice your sump pump smells like mold, mildew, or just plain bad, that’s an indicator your sump pump isn’t working right. The smell is caused by moisture in your basement, which could in turn cause mold or mildew to grow. This problem is not only annoying but could also be dangerous for your health, so call in a professional right away!
Things Are Sounding Strange: Grinding, gurgling, rattling – oh my! If your sump pump is making noises that just don’t sound right, that’s a sign something is wrong. These noises could mean your sump pump is on its way out, so call in an expert to repair it before it quits on you.
Things Aren’t Draining: Is the water in your basement rising quicker than water’s being pumped out? That’s usually a telltale sign your sump pump needs to be fixed. A professional plumber can determine if this is caused by a lack of horsepower or something else.
Things Are Getting Rusty: Rust is usually never a good sign, but it’s especially bad for your sump pump. Rust on your sump pump can hinder its performance and also be a sign that it’s getting old. A replacement could be on the horizon, but until then, call in a pro to repair it and get the most life out of it as possible.
