Why is Your Sump Pump Beeping?

Well, hello Bigfoot community and vigilant homeowners of New England! Have you ever been startled by the sudden chirping of your sump pump? Lucky you – Bigfoot Waterproofing is here to unravel the mystery behind your beeping sump pump. Let’s dive into the reasons why your sump pump may be sounding the alarm and the steps you can take to address it.

1. Low Battery Warning

All that beeping might be a sign that your sump pump battery is running low. If your sump pump has a battery backup system, the beeping may indicate it’s time to replace or recharge your battery. Bigfoot recommends checking the battery status regularly to ensure your sump pump is always ready for action. If we installed your sump pump, we’re happy to get you on the schedule for an annual complimentary check up – get on the schedule here!

2. Sump Pump Failure Alert

A beeping sump could also be signaling a failure, perhaps due to a malfunction in the pump motor, a clogged impeller, or a blocked discharge pipe. If you hear continuous beeping or notice your sump pump not activating when it should, it’s crucial to address the issue promptly so you may prevent basement flooding. Check out this quick tip from Tim on how to DIY or definitely feel free to reach out!

3. High Water Level Alarm

Your sump pump is probably equipped with a high water level alarm, so that beeping could mean the water level in your sump pit has risen above a certain threshold. This alerts you to potential flooding and prompts you to take action to prevent water damage.

4. Power Outage Notification

If you are experiencing a power outage, your sump pump could be beeping to notify you that it’s running on battery backup power. This serves as a reminder to take measures to conserve power and prevent the battery from draining prematurely. Bigfoot advises having a backup power source, such as a generator, to keep your sump pump running during power outages, and give you peace of mind!

5. What to Do When Your Sump Pump Beeps?

If your sump pump is beeping, it’s time to take action. Don’t ever hesitate to make us your first call, but if you’d like to see what you can do first, check the sump pump’s manual or manufacturer’s website to determine the cause of the beeping. If it’s as simple as a low battery, replace or recharge the battery. If the problem persists or you suspect a pump failure, contact Bigfoot Waterproofing for professional assistance.
