How Long Should A Sump Pump Last?

How Long Should A Sump Pump Last Atlanta GA

A middle-of-the-road sump pump from a trusted manufacturer should last for about 20 years. Of course, the lifespan of a sump pump is largely contingent on how frequently it is being used and how well you are maintaining it. Sump pumps should be regularly disconnected and cleaned with water or a diluted water-bleach solution in order to maximize their lifespan and effectiveness.

Of the two types of sump pumps — pedestal pumps and submersible pumps — pedestal pumps tend to last longer, perhaps up to 30 years. Because the motors on pedestal pumps are mounted on top, they are much easier to service, which may contribute to their longer lifespan. Submersible pumps, on the other hand, are installed completely inside the sump, making them harder to access. Additionally, because they’re kept conveniently out of sight, submersible pumps are more likely to be cleaned and serviced less frequently than pedestal pumps, which can also affect how long they last.
