Sump Pump Maintenance

As with any home system, especially plumbing systems, it’s best to avoid problems completely by optimizing your system for perfect performance. That’s why our professional plumbers offer routine sump pump maintenance services in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.

Our team takes care to optimize your system through complete cleaning, component checks, operation tests, and more.

Battery Backups

Schneller Knochelmann also installs sump pump battery backups in the Cincinnati area. In Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati, heavy thunderstorms are common. They bring high winds and lightning, so you may lose power during them. Because your sump pump runs on electricity, it can stop working during a power outage.

That’s why you need a battery backup sump pump. Not only does it work when your main sump pump doesn’t, but it also acts as a secondary pump in case your primary pump gets overwhelmed.

The battery backup also has an alarm that alerts you if there are any problems with the battery, connections, or a clogged pump. The backup sump pump ensures you’re covered during power outages, sump pump failures, and excessive water flow.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sump Pumps

Common questions we receive about sump pumps include:

Can sump pumps be repaired?

Floats, check valves, impellers, and other components can fail over time. When components within the sump pump fail, our team can repair or replace these to return the system to full operation.

How many years does a sump pump last?

A well-maintained sump pump will provide reliable operation for around 10 years.

What causes sump pump failure?

Power outages and damaged electrical wires are the most common causes of sump pump failures. Other common causes of failure include improperly installed or sized sump pumps, overloading, frozen or clogged discharge pipes, and old age.

How do I keep my sump pump clean?

Sump pumps require regular cleaning, at least once per year in most cases. To clean the sump pump, disconnect the pump from the discharge pipe and take it outside to rinse it off with a garden hose.

You’ll want to remove any caked-on debris. Next, drain the standing water from within the sump pit (this is usually easiest with a shop vac), then dry the sump pump before reconnecting it to the discharge pipe.

How long does a sump pump installation take?

Switching out an old sump pump usually takes an hour or two. Before any installation, we’ll thoroughly assess your needs and provide a reliable estimate that includes the expected duration and steps required to complete the sump pump installation in your home.
