How often should sump pumps be replaced?
My house is about 4 years old and I was just wondering if there is a recommended periodicity for changing out sump pumps? My current sump pump has no back-up power which concerns me. Just last night we had storms with heavy rain and winds; luckily the power stayed on but the prospect of flooding because the sump pump has no power concerns me. I will definitely get a pump with back-up power when I do replace the current one.
