What Can Cause Weak Sump Pump Flow?
Sump pumps are responsible for moving water from lower elevations to higher elevations. They are instrumental for septic systems that rely on gravity or can be used to prevent flooding in basements. A faulty sump pump can cause big problems when it is unable to move water fast enough to avoid damaging a home or wastewater system.
What Goes Wrong?
Several things can be attributed to the malfunction of a sump pump such as power failure, defective products, frozen lines, or mechanical problems. However, many problems come from simple lack of maintenance and even incorrect installation. If installed incorrectly, sump pumps can become clogged. The debris can interfere with the action of the pump switch or affect the float, both of which affects the effectiveness of the sump pump.
