In our efforts to help our customers and friends we are continually posting tips on general home maintenance and reasons to check your mechanicals regularly. Well, we had a call this week for a sump pump that was running, but was not evacuating the water fast enough, causing some overflow from the pit. The sump pit was very muddy, and regular checks and cleaning of the sump pit could have added a few years to the pump. Check out the pictures of this mud eating pump, its last days were not its best.
