Grosse Pointe Shores Basement Flooding Averted by Working Sump Pump?

5/7/2024 (Permalink)

A new sump pump is being installed in a home. We are leaders in water damage restoration services in Macomb County.

Our local St. Clair Shores team has been responding to water damage emergencies in Grosse Pointe Shores for many years. The average lifespan of a sump pump can vary depending on factors such as quality, usage, maintenance, and environmental conditions. However, a well-maintained sump pump typically lasts 5 to 15 years. Other factors that influence the life of a sump pump are:

Power Supply: Sump pumps equipped with backup power sources, such as battery backups or generators, are more likely to continue functioning during power outages, which can extend their lifespan.

Installation: Proper installation is crucial for a sump pump's efficient operation and longevity. A poorly installed pump may experience issues that shorten its lifespan.

Environmental Conditions: Factors such as the type of water being pumped (e.g., clean water vs. sewage), the presence of debris or sediment in the sump pit, and exposure to extreme temperatures can all affect a sump pump's lifespan.

Type of Pump: Different types of sump pumps (e.g., submersible pumps and pedestal pumps) may have varying lifespans. Submersible pumps, placed directly in the sump pit, tend to have longer lifespans than pedestal pumps mounted above the pit.
