Sump Pump Testing & Repair

Your sump pump is a submersible pump typically located in the basement of your home. Drain lines will direct water from large rainstorms or snowmelt to the pump, which will flush it out, so it doesn’t flood your basement.

Sump pumps are designed to last a long time, but like anything else, they should be periodically tested—you don’t want to wait until the storm of the century before you find out yours isn’t working! Fortunately, testing a sump pump is pretty simple.

How to Test Your Sump Pump

  • Find out where your pump is located (it should be in a pit in the lower level of your home).
  • Pour about 5 gallons of water into the pit. The pump should kick on in a matter of seconds and flush the water away.
  • While you’re doing this, look around the pump for things like leaves, balls, and other debris that could fall into the pit and clog the pump. Remove anything you find.
  • Check to see if your sump pump activates after you fill it with water. If it does, it should work just fine.
  • Recheck it every few months to make sure it’s working well.

If your sump pump fails to activate, call John Nugent & Sons right away!
