As we prepare for a change of season, it’s important to make sure your sump pump is in good working order. When it’s functioning properly, it means the difference between staying dry and being up to your ankles in water. Because a sump pump is one of those invisible home necessities, most people don’t pay it much attention – until it stops working correctly. When that happens, you could end up with a flooded basement, flooded lawn, or backed up water all over your home.
Your sump pump is designed to force water out of your basement in the event of a flood. Routine sump pump maintenance is the best way to keep your home’s infrastructure running smoothly. Here’s why:
Your sump pump must be clean and free of debris. The filter and other components must move freely and be able to do their job. Regular maintenance avoids breakdowns in the inner workings and helps eliminate costly repairs.
It Eliminates Worry
Flooded basements, ruined lawns, and unpleasant odors in your home make life hard. Careful maintenance of your sump pump does more than eliminate these disasters. It keeps your sump pump away from the center of attention.
