How to Find the Best Sump Pump Replacement Service Near You

If your basement has an abundance of moisture, that can be a sign your sump pump needs maintenance because it isn't working correctly. This can cause mold or mildew, and it's best to have the pump fixed as soon as you see a problem. Other potential problems include a dead back-up battery, the primary or back-up pump not working, unusual noises when the motor is running, water that's entering the sump pump not pumping or discharging correctly and frozen or clogged discharge lines.

If there's an electrical issue with the pump, the outlets in your house may be working but the pump doesn't. A properly trained sump pump contractor can identify these issues and work to fix them. However, before you hire any plumber, you need to interview them as they inspect the issue. Consider asking the following questions before hiring a sump pump installer or repair service:

  • Do you offer free estimates?
  • How many years of experience do you have?
  • Are you licensed and insured?
  • How long will the sump pump repair take?
  • When can you start?
  • Do you have any references, and can I contact them?
  • Can I see previous examples of your work?
  • Will you need to dig a new hole?
  • Where will you put the drain?
  • Can you tell me about the sump pump's functions?
  • Do you provide a written estimate?

Sump Pump Installation or Repair Cost

Repairing a sump pump costs far less than sump pump replacement or installation of a new system. Because of the level of work involved, installing a new sump pump typically costs anywhere between $766 to $1,140. The average price is $1,044. The factors that affect cost include the type of floor you have, the type of pump, where you live geographically and where the pump is located in your home. The types of pumps are the pedestal pump and submersible sump pump. The pedestal pump typically has a ⅓ horsepower motor and can pump around 35 gallons per minute. The submersible sump pump has ½ horsepower and can pump about 60 gallons per minute. This type is more expensive and more difficult to repair.
