What Causes a Sump Pump To Overflow in a Westchester or Fairfield County Basement?

Sump Pump Repair
  • A Clogged Float Switch: The float switch is essential to a properly functioning sump pump, if it is clogged this can result in serious issues. A simple test would be to lift the bracket attached to the float and the pump should switch on. If not, then a replacement will be necessary in the near future.
  • Broken Check Valve: Check valves are there to ensure that the water in the sump pit flows outside the home, and not back into the pit. A broken check valve means a constant game of tennis between the pump, and the same water as it re-enters the sump pit.
  • lack of maintenance: You should have your pump cleaned, and tested regularly to ensure proper function. This will help avoid unwanted overflows.
  • old age: The average life expectancy of a sump pump is 10 years with proper maintenance.
  • Discharge Pipe Failure: Your discharge pipe is designed to divert water away from the home. . If it isn't doing its job, this water will end up right back into your basement.
  • Power Outages: This is one of the most common causes of a sump failure and overflow. This typically happens after a severe storm.
  • Underpowered sump pump: It is crucial to make sure that your pump has enough power to handle the size of your basement and any volume of water thrown at it. Areas that experience extreme rain events or high water tables are typically prone to sump pump failures resulting in overflows.
