Maintain Mechanical - Prevantative Mechanical Maintenance - Sump Pumps

While it is true that sump pumps are quite simplistic devices without a lot of maintenance that can be provided on them, it is also true that regular monitoring of the state of the pump is even more important.

As sump pumps are usually installed to help ensure flooding and further damage to the properly or equipment isn’t possible, it is imperative that they are regular monitored and tested to ensure they are working.

The last think you want, is to discover that there is actually a failure because it simply didn’t turn on when it needed to.

We can test, and check all connections or redundant power systems that may be tied to your sump pump.

The pump is only as good as the condition of it and the devices it is connected to. So we will ensure that the power and drainage are also in proper condition.

We will also check the pump and surrounding area to ensure that it is free of debris that may create an issue with properly removing the water.

Preventative maintenance doesn’t mean your cost will necessarily be higher. We offer custom solutions to ensure that no one is paying for features or checks that they don’t require, and so that more advanced systems are not having features being skipped.

What is preventative maintenance?

Contrary to popular belief, preventative maintenance does not equate to stopping equipment failures and unexpected repairs. It would be dishonest of us to say that no repairs on equipment will be necessary in the future. Preventative maintenance is required to ensure that a building’s equipment reaches its intended lifespan. Our role is to highlight small deficiencies or design oversights before they become larger and more costly problems. Preventative maintenance on building equipment can be compared to the maintenance of a vehicle; it’s far cheaper and safer to inspect and replace a car’s brake pads when required rather than leaving it until other parts of the braking system are affected.
