Missouri and Kansas are known for their intense storms. And in any region that experiences heavy rainfall or flooding, a sump pump is essential. The sump pump is your home’s main defense against flooding. Sump pumps are designed to keep the area under your foundation dry and prevent water from entering the home.
Sump pumps are installed in the lowest part of the basement or crawlspace. In the event of a flood, they then pump excess water away from your property. This protects your home from costly water damage. That’s why Morgan Miller Plumbing is dedicated to providing top-quality sump pump installation and repair services. So your home can stay safe and dry year-round.
Is My Sump Pump OK?
Not sure if your sump pump needs to be repaired or replaced? Here are some signs to look out for:
- Strange noises: Loud or unusual noises means it may be time for a repair or replacement. Grinding or rattling sounds can indicate that there’s a problem with the motor or fan, and a professional should be called in to diagnose the issue.
- Frequent cycling: If your sump pump is cycling on and off frequently, it may be a sign that it’s struggling to keep up with the amount of water in your sump pit. A variety of factors could cause this, including a faulty float switch or a clogged discharge line.
- Foul odors: A foul odor coming from your pump or sump pit may indicate a buildup of debris or bacteria. In some cases, a thorough cleaning can solve the problem, but if the odor persists, it may be time for a new sump pump.
- Visible rust or corrosion: If you can see visible rust or corrosion on your sump pump or in your sump pit, it may be a sign that your pump is nearing the end of its lifespan. Rust and corrosion can weaken the pump and reduce its effectiveness, so it’s important to address the issue as soon as possible.
If you’re experiencing any of these issues or have any concerns about the condition of your sump pump, we encourage you to contact us for a professional assessment. Our team of experts can provide you with the guidance you need to make an informed decision about whether a repair or replacement is the best course of action for your specific situation.

Sump Pump Maintenance
Regular maintenance is key to ensuring your sump pump is always ready when you need it. Our routine maintenance services include a comprehensive inspection of your sump pump system to ensure it is functioning properly. We also clean the sump pit and check valves to prevent clogs and ensure proper water flow.
We recommend scheduling sump pump maintenance at least once a year, preferably in the spring before heavy rain seasons begin. Regular maintenance can help prevent costly repairs and ensure your sump pump is ready for any emergency.
Battery Backup Services
A sump pump battery backup system is a crucial addition to any home with a sump pump. A battery backup system ensures that your sump pump will continue to function even during power outages or other electrical failures. This is important because heavy rain and storms often cause power outages, which can leave your home vulnerable to flooding. A sump pump battery backup system is easy to install and requires very little maintenance.

Our team of experienced technicians can help you choose the right system for your home and install it quickly and efficiently.
