The sump pump is one of those devices in your home that you hope you don’t have to use. It’s an emergency appliance to handle flooding or excess water getting into your basement. But, like any preventive device, you must make sure it’s in working shape year after year. You don’t want it to fail the first time you actually need it!
Spring is about to begin, and this is one of the periods when you may need the services of your sump pump. There is the issue of snowmelt and more rain. The ground around your house will absorb more water, and this can lead to water seeping into the basement through the walls. If your sump pump is working correctly, it will remove the excessive moisture and stop extreme water damage from flooding.
