“What to do when the sump pump alarm goes off” is a great question. The sound of the alarm is scary enough because you might be on the verge of a flooded basement or crawl space. In today’s blog, we will go over some of the factors you may consider when you hear the alarm going off and what the next steps are.

What To Do When The Sump Pump Alarm Goes Off

  • First, do not unplug or turn off your pump. This really might put you at risk of flooding if a lot of water is coming in.
  • Check the sensors that usually sits on the top of the basin. If they are wet and the basin is not filling up. The sensors may be reading wrong. Try drying them off to see if that solves the problem.
  • If a lot of rain is in the area and the sump pump is working too hard or is falling behind. This maybe the reason why you are hearing the sump pump alarm.
