SUMP PUMP TIPS
Make Sure Your Sump Pump Is Working Safely & Efficiently
Sump pumps are important—but often forgotten—pieces of equipment. These pumps are responsible for clearing excess water away from your home’s basement and foundation, preventing flooding and water damage. A properly working sump pump can ultimately save you thousands of dollars, not to mention a ton of stress, by stopping basement flooding in its tracks.
There are a few things you can do as a homeowner to ensure that your sump pump is working properly and efficiently:
- Make sure the pipe that takes the water from your sump pump is taking the water far away from your home and not running back down the foundation.
- Make sure the grade from your home is taking water away from the home and not towards the home’s foundation.
- Make sure all downspouts are taking water far away from the home’s foundation.
- Make sure your sump pump or back up pump is plugged into a dedicated circuit so the outlet doesn’t lose power from another resource overpowering the circuit.
