Spring Time = Check Your Sump Pump Time

With all of the rain, it is so very important to test your sump pump to be sure it is working correctly. All you have to do is pour water into the sump pit until the sump float is lifted high enough to engage the pump. If the sump pump does not power, then the problem may be a failed float switch or a jammed/clogged pump, or maybe just a blown fuse or circuit breaker. Make sure you scoop the debris from the sump pit and run clear water through the pump to remove any build-up. Run enough clear water to flush out debris build-up from the drainage pipe as well.

Keeping your sump pump in working order is vital to protecting your home and personal property from moisture damage.
