Sump Pump Testing in McLean & Northern Virginia
Each year, we receive calls from panicked homeowners in the middle of a rainstorm who have a flooded basement due to a sump pump that fails at an inopportune time. One way to prevent this catastrophe is to thoroughly test your sump pump and ensure it’s fully functional and ready to serve you. While we also recommend a battery backup sump pump, sump pump testing is the minimum of what you should do to protect your home.
When was the last time you tested your sump pump? If you are in need, contact John Nugent & Sons for help. Call us at 703-291-1926.
Why Sump Pump Testing Is Important
Why should you invest in sump pump testing? While you can do some testing on your own, the reality is that much of a sump pump is hard to see. Without the right tools and knowledge, you may not be thoroughly testing your pump. The only way you will know that you have a problem is when the rain starts to fall and your basement starts to flood. At John Nugent & Sons, we believe this shouldn’t happen, and that’s why we offer professional sump pump testing.
Our experienced team knows how to inspect a sump pump thoroughly, checking for those hidden problems that could lead to costly emergencies. We will check for:
- Mechanical problems
- Efficiency and effectiveness
- Electrical problems
- Signs of wear and tear
In addition, we will provide some maintenance during this appointment, cleaning and optimizing your pump to limit the problems you face later and extend its lifespan. By investing in this service each year, you are able to have peace of mind, knowing that your sump pump will deliver reliable service every time it rains.

Common Reasons Sump Pumps Fail
One of the reasons we believe that sump pumps should be tested regularly is because of the long list of things that can go wrong with these devices. Some problems we may find in a maintenance appointment include:
- Stuck switches
- Clogged discharge pipes
- Pumps that are overwhelmed by a large amount of water
- Poorly cleaned pumps
- Improperly installed pumps
- Pumps that are 10 years old or older
If we notice any of these problems, we can provide a repair solution that will ensure your home is properly protected.
