When it comes to sump pumps, you cannot rely on the expression, “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.” Ideally, you should replace a sump pump before it reaches the actual end of its life. Otherwise, you’re putting yourself at risk for basement flooding or serious water damage to your property if the sump pump fails during a rainstorm or spring thaw. In Chicago’s North Shore, Glenbrook Heating & Air Conditioning can help by inspecting, repairing, or making a full sump pump replacement to keep you protected.

When to Replace a Sump Pump
After taking a look at your sump pump and speaking with you about its recent performance, your Glenbrook technician can make recommendations for repair or a complete sump pump replacement. We’ll help you choose a solution that addresses these signs of sump pump failure:
- Age: Your sump pump is close to or past its life expectancy, which can be 10 years or less for some models.
- Constant running: Your sump pump runs, but won’t turn off or takes forever to discharge.
- Too many repairs: Your sump pump has failed soon after a repair. Like an old car, frequent repairs to a sump pump indicate system failure.
- Loud motor noises: The motor is the most expensive and difficult part to repair on a sump pump, so replacement often makes more sense.
- Improper cycling: If a sump pump continues cycling on and off too much or failing to turn on, even after replacing the float switch, there’s a bigger problem.
Replacement Sump Pumps in Chicago’s North Shore
Looking for a new sump pump that will last a long time and need little maintenance? Glenbrook can help you select a replacement sump pump with the right size, horsepower, and features for your home.
The first consideration is to find a sump pump that fits in your current pit size, or to make alterations for a larger pit. Many smaller homes take a 1/3-horsepower sump pump motor, but larger homes or those more prone to water drainage issues should use 1/2 or 3/4 horsepower models.
