Is It Time to Replace the Sump Pump in Your Atlanta Home? Call Engineered Solutions of Georgia
As a general rule of thumb, a sump pump should be replaced every 15-20 years. However, there are a number of factors that can affect this. First off, there are two common types of sump pumps in homes today. There are pedestal pumps, in which the motor is mounted on top of the sump, and submersible pumps, which are mounted entirely inside the sump. Pedestal pumps are much easier to service because their motors are more easily accessible, but they are less discreet than submersible pumps which are out of sight, out of mind. Pedestal pumps tend to last longer—usually 25 to 30 years if they have been installed properly and kept free of debris—than submersible pumps, which often only last for about 5-15 years.
