Common Issues

Sump pumps are tough and reliable but not free from potential failures. Our team can diagnose and resolve any issue with your sump pump, including the following common problems:

  • Incorrect sizing: If your pump is too small, it will struggle to pump the water efficiently. This will cause the motor to burn out and reduce the pump’s life span.
  • Clogs: Clogged sump pump intakes are common and will diminish the performance and reliability of your pump. Regular inspections and cleaning can reduce the possibility of a clog forming.
  • Stuck switches: When the float switch (or pressure sensor) sticks, it will stop the pump from turning on or off.
  • Power loss: When the power grid fails, it will stop supplying power to your sump pump. Installing a high-capacity battery backup can resolve this problem.

Our Repair Process

Our certified and insured technicians work quickly to accurately diagnose the cause of your sump pump failure. We use the latest techniques and technologies to inspect and repair your system thoroughly. We work quickly because we know that a malfunctioning sump pump poses a risk to flooring, concrete, sheetrock, and every item in your basement.

During the repair appointment, our technicians will thoroughly inspect your sump pump, including the pit, discharge location, check valve, discharge pipe, and power supply. Once we know the precise condition of your system, we will discuss the necessary repairs and potential issues with you before commencing work.

Can I repair my own sump pump?

We advise against DIY sump pump repairs for two primary reasons. First, any repair requires proper diagnosis. You can perform unnecessary repairs without resolving the issue if you miss a symptom or misdiagnose the cause. Second, serious injury is possible, which a licensed and insured professional would avoid.

Why is my sump pump leaking?

Leaks are usually because of a misaligned drainage system. However, it’s also possible it’s caused by a faulty valve sending water back into the home.

Staying local made sure that I was taken care of once again. Called on a Thursday and they had someone out by 8am on Friday. Al did a phenomenal job! I explained the issues, he gave me 4 different solution options with pricing, answered all my questions, kept everything clean and sanitary, and was so kind. Job was completed the same day and was reasonably priced. As a single female I didn't feel like I was manipulated for extra services or overpriced, I was treated with complete respect. I'll certainly use them again!

The whole process was very easy. From making the appointment online and the confirmation via text message, they sent me a photo of the plumber who was going to come to my house. The day of the appointment the plumber called me to tell me that he was on his way. Upon arrival at the house he was very professional and courteous. He explained everything to me in great detail. I recommend this company 100% and they accept all kinds of payments plus a guarantee on the job for one year.

Sam came out for the estimate and recorded everything they were going to do along with taking photos. Job was redoing feed and drain lines under the sink, and installing a new dishwasher and disposal. Called on Monday to schedule once the dishwasher was delivered, and they had us booked for the next day. Al showed up on time for appointment, completed all work quickly, leak checked, ran washer and disposal to verify correct operation, took photos to document, and packed out all the debris. Under $900 parts and labor, including new cutoff valves, new washer feed line, new sink trap, removal and reinstall of disposal and dishwasher, including supplies. Charged exactly what was provided on the job estimate. Highly recommended.

I absolutely recommend Prime Plumbing. I called them after seeing positive Google reviews. The office agent got an appointment 3 hours after I called. The technician called me 5-10 minutes before arrival. Will, the technician was super professional and thoughtful about the space. He wore the disposable shoe protectors as to not bring the outdoors inside. He was mindful not to use machinery that would harm my home. He also answered my questions with a friendly and pleasant demeanor. The problem was fixed and I was so happy. 5 stars!

Amara B.

A real person answered the phone at 4:30 pm and not a long voicemail. It was easy to schedule an appointment. Information regarding upfront consultation fee was provided during the phone call. Reminder text message was sent one day before the appointment. On the day of the appointment, an additional text message with the picture of the plumber who is coming was sent. Overall a very pleasant experience. Our plumber was knowledgeable and professional. He also made sure to put on booties which I really appreciated
