Here in Connecticut, we know a thing or two about basement flooding. As any New England resident can say, April showers bring May flowers – as well as heavy rains. When the storms hit, it’s important that your home is ready to handle it – especially your basement. If you have a sump pump working to keep your home flood free, then you need to make sure it’s working properly and ready to protect your home from water damage.
The most obvious sign that your sump pump isn’t working is a presence of water in the basement. Even if it looks and sounds like it’s working, it’s not doing the job properly if you see water. If your pump is making strange noises, it frequently cycles on and off or experiences lengthy run times, it may need to be serviced by a professional. All of these issues could be due to something small, like a stuck switch or an electrical issue. However, it’s important to identify the cause and fix it right away.
Every pump is different, and the individual traits of your home will affect them. Now that you know how you can maintain your sump pump, you can help to increase its lifespan and help it to function properly in keeping your home from flooding. Don’t hesitate to contact a professional if you think your pump needs special maintenance.
