How old is your sump pump? Do you even think about your sump pump? If it has been reliably pumping away you can certainly come to take it for granted. Until of course, it fails.
Replacing your sump pump every 5 to 7 years is vital in preventing a flood in your basement.
A sump pump is usually located in an out of the way place in the basement of your home. It is housed in the ground in a 15-20 gallon pit with a black lid that is approximately 24 inches in diameter. You will see 2 pipes coming out of that pit that will discharge water outside of the house.
A sump pump collects water either from under your house or from a drain in the stairwell or both. It then pumps the water away from your house to prevent water pressure from building up under the foundation of your house.
If the pump fails, the next time you have a heavy rain fall, all the water under your house will flood into your basement.

No, we have seen pumps last anywhere from 1 to 15 years. The industry standard is to replace the pump every 5 to 7 years as there is no telling how long it will last or when it is broken until it is too late.
The same thing - the sump pump will not work and your basement will most certainly flood.
