Does Your sump Pump Need Maintenance or
Neglecting to test
a sump pump routinely - especially if it is rarely used - can lead to severe
water damage, especially when a heavy storm, snow melt, or flooding sends water
against your home. Overload of the sump pump, due to poor drainage elsewhere on
the property, can lead to pump failure. Frequent sump operation can be a sign of
excessive water buildup under the basement floor, due to poorly sloped
landscaping, poor rain runoff, gutter back-flows and other problems.
of a back-up sump pump that can be quickly installed in the event the first pump
fails, can lead to serious water damage and property loss. This is especially
important if you rely heavily on your sump pump to maintain a dry basement, or
if you live in an area of seasonally-high groundwater. Sump failure can cause
extensive water damage and the loss of valuable personal belongings.
An "ounce of prevention" can prevent "gallons" of potential
water leaks and damage – and a regular maintenance program is the easiest way
to protect your home and its contents.
