What Is a Sump Pump & When Do I Need One?
A sump pump is a plastic or metal device that works to remove water that accumulates in a water-collecting sump basin, usually after long periods of rain or heavy storms. It’s common to find these types of units in basements that are below the water table.
Depending on where your house is located, you may not need a sump pump. In general, if there is a possibility of your basement flooding, it is a good idea to invest in a sump pump. If you would like to know whether your home could benefit from a professional sump pump installation, don’t hesitate to call Hudson Plumbing.

Like all other mechanical systems in your home, a sump pump will eventually need to be replaced. Typically, sump pumps last between seven to ten years. The lifespan of your sump pump can be impacted by various factors, such as how often it is used, the amount of water it has to remove, and the cycle runtime.
Common signs that a sump pump should be replaced include:
- Your sump pump is cycling on and off too frequently
- Your unit runs continuously
- The pump is making strange noises
- The system doesn’t turn on when it should
- Your pump has visible rust
- The unit vibrates excessively when running
If you notice any issues with your sump pump, reach out to our trained professionals to perform a thorough inspection. We will accurately diagnose the source of the issue and determine whether the unit can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced. Should you need a new pump, we will take the time to explain the best options for your needs and budget. Once you’ve selected the perfect system for you, we’ll ensure that it gets installed correctly for optimal, long-lasting performance.
Battery Sump Pumps
Standard sump pump systems operate on electricity. This means that if the power goes out in the middle of a storm (when you need your sump pump the most), your sump pump will fail to operate. This is why we recommend that every basement sump pump system have a battery backup unit in place. In the event of a power failure, the battery sump pump will kick in to provide full defense against the accumulation of water. A battery sump pump can also come in handy if your primary sump pump fails for any other reason.
