Your Sump Pump Installation or Replacement questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does a sump pump cost?

A sump costs $600 to $2,500 total with installation or $100 to $800 for the unit alone. Prices vary depending on the pump type, horsepower needed, accessibility, and whether you have dirt or concrete floors. Demolition or jackhammering will increase labor costs.

A pedestal sump pump costs $100 to $400 on average for the unit alone, a while submersible pump costs $100 to $800. Submersible pumps run more quietly but are usually more expensive.

What is a sump pump?

A sump pump is a device that keeps your basement dry by pumping out any water that seeps in. The pump sits inside a basin that's installed in the ground to collect water. The sump pump turns on once the water reaches a certain level in the basin and sends the water away from the house to a higher ground level or a municipal storm drain.

Is a sump pump worth it?

A sump pump is worth it for the following reasons:

  • It can prevent flooding and expensive water damage to your home.
  • It helps prevent mold and mildew growth.
  • It can prevent infestations from pests such as rodents, termites, and other insects.

How long does a sump pump installation take?

A simple sump pump installation takes 8 to 10 hours. The installation may take longer depending on how close the pump is to the closest electrical outlet, if any concrete needs to be jackhammered or removed, and the type of drain installed.

How long does a sump pump last?

A sump pump will typically last for 5 to 30 years, depending on the type and how often you need it. Pedestal pumps last 10 to 30 years, while submersible pumps last 5 to 20 years on average. If you have significant issues with water in your basement and the pump is on frequently, it may not last very long. Pedestal sump pumps are easier and less expensive to service than submersible pumps.

The following signs may indicate that you need a new sump pump:

  • It's making strange or loud noises.
