Sump Pump Repair or Replacement

Indianapolis has been known to have all four seasons in a week! If you have a sump pump, it’s important to have a quality system to handle rain, melting snow, or any water event that could cause thousands of dollars in property damage in your home. L.D. Smith Plumbing solves any problem with your sump pump – from installation to repairs. We also service/repair or replace duplex systems and backup systems. Manufacturers recommend sump pump replacement every three to five years and sewage pump replacement every five to seven years. We highly recommend a battery-operated backup sump pump in case your primary sump pump needs repair or stop working due to a power outage. A backup system includes an alarm to alert about any problems in the pit where your sump pump is located. L.D. Smith Plumbing also offers a device that connects to your WiFi to receive alerts away from home.

We also offer sump pump discharge line or replacement, which is just as important as having a functioning sump pump. The sump pump discharge line moves the water pumped out by the sump pump away from your home, usually underground. Anything from a clogged, broken, or collapsed discharge line can cause flooding in your basement or crawl space and damage to your yard. We offer everything from sump pump discharge line inspections via camera to repair and complete line replacements. Signs you may need a sump pump repair or replacement:

Look for warning signs
If the sump pump in your home is running shorter or longer than normal, that is a clear sign that it needs a maintenance check for a possible replacement. Another sign includes oily-looking water or an unusual sound when the sump pump is running.

Do a quick check of your sump pump
1) Add water to the pit to ensure the sump pump is operating properly. Be sure the water activates the pump and turns off when the water evacuates.
2) Be sure water is coming out of the discharge line when the pump is activated.
3) Be sure the pit is clear of debris that could jam the sump pump.

Check the age of your sump pump
If the sump pump in your home is running shorter or longer than normal, that is a clear sign that it needs a maintenance check for a possible replacement. Another sign includes oily-looking water or an unusual sound when the sump pump is running.
