When it comes to the many systems that keep your home comfortable and functional, it is common for things like the sump pump to fall to the bottom of the list. After all, a broken sump pump isn’t the kind of thing you are likely to notice when things are normal, as you might notice a leaky faucet or clogged drain. Most often, these issues crop up after heavy rainfall or some other catastrophe, causing a flooded basement and extensive, costly water damage.
At Dr Rooter of Lexington, we know that your sump pump is an extremely important device that helps to prevent basement flooding in times of severe weather or pipe bursts. By being proactive and addressing necessary repairs as quickly as possible, you can keep damage to a minimum and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a fully functional plumbing system.

What Is a Sump Pump?
This remarkable device is a pump that is designed to protect your home, particularly the foundation, from excessive groundwater that could cause significant damage. The pump is installed at the home’s lowest point, usually a crawlspace or basement, and carries the water away from your property. When functioning correctly, it helps to ensure that the lower parts of the property are protected from flooding, water damage, and related issues like mold.
As your home’s first line of defense against flooding, being aware of the condition of your sump pump is always recommended. After all, as with any system with moving parts, things are going to break down over time and require attention.
If you notice any of the following, there may be reason to suspect a malfunction in your sump pump:
- The motor is not running
- The float switch is stuck
- There are loud noises coming from the pump
- There is an unpleasant smell of must or mildew around the pump
