Sump Pump Repair Service
A fully functional sump pump can help you avoid a huge inconvenience like a flooded basement. Wastewater backups, excess rain or blocked sewer lines can leave you with an expensive emergency like a flooding basement after wreaking havoc on your water lines. Here at Pratt Plumbing, we know how to help you avoid problems like this with our sump pump repair service that ensures your sump pump is functioning properly at all times.
How It Works
A sump pump is an electric pump that moves water into a draining pipe system or out of your home. A sump pit is dug in your basement, and the electric pump removes surplus water when it is working correctly. A functioning sump pump is essential to the homeowner that wants to avoid leakage or flooding.
Without a functioning sump pump, you may deal with costly issues like:
- Water damage
- Faulty foundations
All of these issues are expensive to fix in the long run, and we want to help you avoid them completely with our sump pump repair in Amarillo.

Maintaining Your Sump Pump
If you neglect sump pump maintenance, you might face flooding in your basement. A sump pump should remove stagnant water; if it can’t do its job, you could face serious structural damage. In the case of sump pumps, it truly pays to hire a professional to maintain your system. That’s where the team at Pratt Plumbing comes in.
In between professional visits, you can also maintain your sump pump on your own. For instance, you should remove the pump’s screen and clean the unit three to four times per year. If your sump pump has an inlet opening, gently clean the opening. Before you do any maintenance or cleaning, however, make sure you disconnect the pump’s power. If you’re at all uncomfortable handling this work, leave it to a professional. If you make a mistake, you’re in for the full cost of repairs. Never hesitate to give Pratt Plumbing a call!
What is the most common cause of sump pump failure?
The most common cause of sump pump failure is a power outage. During large storms, your power can be knocked out for a few hours, even days. It is crucial that you have a backup generator that is sufficient enough to run your sump pump. Without a backup power source, you risk extensive water damage. The experts at Pratt Plumbing can suggest the size generator you would need in case of a power outage. Give us a call, we are happy to help you!
