Your sump pump is one of the most important parts of your home’s plumbing system, so it’s important to know when it’s time to replace it. Even if it’s still working, an older sump pump is less efficient and may not be able to handle the workload of a newer home. 

There are many factors in deciding when it’s time to get a new sump pump:


If you have a sump pump that is more than 10 years old, it may be time to replace it. Sump pumps can become less effective as they age and may not be able to pump water out as quickly or efficiently as they could when they were new. If your basement has been flooding more often or the water level doesn’t seem to be dropping as quickly as it used to, it’s likely time for a new sump pump. PumpSpy’s SmartPump®  is designed for longevity and efficiency, providing homeowners peace of mind when replacing the old with the new. The industrial quality vertical switch is rated for over 1 Million pump cycles, includes a high water sensor that monitors water, and comes with an additional 3-year warranty.


If your sump pump is making strange noises, it’s definitely time to seek out something new. Sump pumps should run quietly and smoothly, so any strange noises are a sign that something is wrong. If you hear grinding, humming, rattling, or whining, it’s a sign that it’s starting to fail and needs to be replaced. PumpSpy’s SmartPump® is equipped with a quiet, but powerful 1/2 HP, 7 amp split capacitor to power the motor. This eliminates the bothersome noises coming from your basement and; if something isn’t right – your phone will notify you right away!


If you notice any leaks around your sump pump, it’s time for a replacement. These leaks can lead to serious water damage in your home, so it’s important to fix the problem at the source right away. Each of PumpSpy’s Smart Sump Pump Systems automatically tracks incoming data from your sump pump and checks that everything is working properly 24/7. Eliminate the unknown – no leaks, no questions asked.
