Here Comes the Rain again....
Sump pumps can be an effective option for preventing water damage. Installed in the basement or crawlspace these units sense when the water from rain or snowmelt is rising in the pit and approaching the floor level. The incoming water is then pumped outside before it can damage the home or its furnishings.
Sump pumps are relatively low-maintenance devices, but you can help keep your unit operational by inspecting it regularly. Steps in our regular maintenance program can include:
- Checking the discharge line to make sure it is not stopped up or frozen. If necessary, unclog the air vent hole in the line.
- Checking the inlet screen to ensure that it’s not clogged with residue and debris. Do this three or four times per year.
- Making sure the float component is unobstructed and can move smoothly.
- Scanning the pit and removing any visible debris, mud, or stones.
