How often should a sump pump be serviced?



Keeping up to date with your pump maintenance program ensures some longevity to your pumping equipment. So how long are the intervals between each service?  This is a question often asked by our customers. This all depends in the risk. Consideration of risk includes flooding, limescale from surrounding  groundwater and the usage. 

Ideally, if you have a sump pump that is simply dewatering and is at no risk of limescale or blockages, then a recommendation of annual servicing can be opted! 

Should your sump pump be protecting a basement property - then the British standards recommendations are bi-annual servicing ( six months ) This is due to a basement property being at risk of flooding!

Often this can also be extended should your sump pump design have an option of telemetry monitoring or WIFI enabled alarm monitoring.

Normally, a defective sump pump shall not be obvious untill it fails to operate and by then the potential risk of flooding can occur.

Commercial or combined residence pumping pumping stations are often assessed on there service intervals through there use or demand risk! Often bi-annual servicing or quarterly servicing is recommended for these applications.
