We put a lot of effort into choosing the right pump for our requirements. However, most of us do not pay enough attention to the maintenance of our pumps.

One of the most important elements when maintaining a pump is knowing when it should be replaced. This blog will help you understand this. This is still true for every pump including slurry pumps, submersible pumps, dewatering pumps, etc.
Here are two of the less common signs to look for when maintaining your pump.
Watch for visible rust.

The brown substance you see may be from corroded battery terminals. However, keep in mind that sometimes discoloration can also be caused by bacteria. Most commonly, this bacteria is called iron bacteria because of its color characteristics. The blight feeds on the iron in the water. Ultimately, this is what causes discoloration. Not only that, but in extreme cases, it can also produce a gel-like substance that can lead to clogged pipes. It is true that iron bacteria is not dangerous to human health. However, it can certainly cause problems with the flow of water in the drainage system.

Watch out for irregular rides.

Suppose you have a sump pump that cycles on and off very frequently. Even in heavy rain, if this happens, you should know that there may be a problem with your pump. Don't panic for now. It could be as simple as an incorrectly adjusted float switch. This could be the cause of your pump starting up, even if there are only a few inches of water pooling in the pool.

Another cause of these problems could be faulty wiring. They can cause the sump pump to turn on and off at odd intervals from time to time. Keep in mind that a simple short in your electrical system may prompt the pump to stop or start occasionally

Finally, if you are looking at your pump and your hunch tells you that it may have a problem, it is always a good idea to consult a professional instead of sticking with a bad submersible sump pump or making the mistake of throwing away a good one!
