Our team offers expert sump pump replacement services to keep your system working optimally.
Here at William Dustin Septic, we understand that your property is important to you, and we want to help you do what’s best for it. If your home or business uses a septic system for waste disposal, then a key part of keeping your property functional and comfortable is maintaining that system. One of the most important parts of any septic system is the sump pump, which pumps out excess water and prevents any waste from the tank from flowing back toward your property. While sump pumps are built to last a long time, they will eventually wear out and need to be replaced. When that time comes, you can turn to our experts to get the top-notch sump pump replacement services you need.
In our many years in this industry, we have witnessed our fair share of septic emergencies, and we want to help you avoid them if at all possible. Rather than let the need for sump pump replacement catch you unaware, we recommend that you pay attention to your system and watch out for the following signs that your pump is nearing the end of its life:
- Age – The average life expectancy for a sump pump is about ten years. If your pump is that old or older, even if it seems like it’s working fine, you might want to consider having it replaced as a preventative measure.
- Constant Running – In general, your sump pump should only be running when there is a lot of water entering your septic system, such as during periods of heavy rain, when doing laundry, or when hosting guests (i.e. having more people use the bathroom). If your pump is running all the time, you should have it looked at, and it’s likely that you will need to replace it.
- Inconsistent Performance – On the flip side, if your sump pump is running some days and not others, then there may be a problem with the float, or the pump may simply be too old. Here in Lake Wales, Florida, it’s common to have rain nearly every day during the summer, and you need a sump pump that will work reliably in order to prevent your yard from flooding.
- Increased Noise – Another sign that you may need a sump pump replacement is an increase in the amount of noise it makes. If your pump sounds louder than it used to as it runs, or if it’s starting to make grinding or rattling sounds, then its components are likely wearing out.
Our team is proud to serve the Lake Wales community, and we want to help you keep your septic system working effectively and prevent your yard from flooding. If you have been having problems with your sump pump or suspect that you need a new one, we encourage you to give us a call. Our experts will inspect your system to determine whether you need sump pump replacement, and then provide all services that may be required to restore your system to correct working order.
