The Importance of Sump Pumps
Highland Park, TX, receives an average of nearly 41 inches of rain per year. In recent years, weather patterns have become more unpredictable, and flood events have been on the rise across the state of Texas. Properly installed sump pumps can dramatically reduce a home’s chances of flooding even during serious storms.
If you’ve never dealt with a flooding problem before, it may seem like sump pump installation isn’t really necessary. However, all homes are susceptible to water damage. Sump pumps don’t just help to protect against storms. They also play an invaluable role in protecting your home when pipes burst or other plumbing problems occur.
How Sump Pumps Work
Most sump pumps in Highland Park, TX, can be found in crawl spaces. Because this is the lowest point in the home, it’s where the water drains if there’s a flood. The sump pump will be located in a basin to ensure that it’s as low as possible. When the basin fills with water, the pump engages, causing it to move the water up a discharge pipe and out of your home.
Sump pumps don’t just protect any belongings stored in your crawl space or located on the bottom floor of your home from water damage. They can also help to prevent structural damage to foundations, floors, and more. If your home doesn’t have a sump pump, you can call Milestone to schedule a sump pump installation right away.
Warning Signs of a Failing Sump Pump
Does your home already have a sump pump? If you’re not sure, now is the time to go check the crawl space. It’s also a good time to schedule an inspection to make sure the sump pump is in good working order.
What if the sump pump has already proven itself in recent storms? Even if it seems to be in good working order, you should keep an eye out for the warning signs of trouble described below.
If your home is more than a decade old and you’ve never had its sump pump serviced, there’s a good chance you’ll need a new one soon. Sump pumps are only designed to last seven to ten years even with proper maintenance. If yours hasn’t been inspected or maintained in over a decade, give us a call. We’ll send a Technician out to see if it’s still in good working order or if it’s time for a new sump pump installation.
As with any metal appliance, rust and age go hand in hand with sump pumps. If you go to check the home’s sump pump for signs of wear and notice visible rust, take that as a red flag. The rust could be caused by old age or by bacteria, but either way, it’s time to have the sump pump inspected to ensure that it’s not clogged and a pump failure is not imminent.

While no sump pump operates without any sounds, they’re not supposed to be noisy. Loud noises are a definite sign that there are worn or damaged parts somewhere within the pump assembly.
