Quick Tips: Easy Sump Pump Test
Easy Sump Pump Test 2003
The heavy rain season is coming, which means you want to make sure your sump pump is in good working order. A sump pump removes water that might enter your home through the foundation; just a little water can cause thousands of dollars in damage, so it’s important to make sure your sump pump is ready for everything Mother Nature can throw at it. Here’s all you do, first make sure your sump pump is plugged in, now test your pump by lifting the float, if the pump comes on chances are you’ll be okay. If there’s water in the basket it should empty. If the motor doesn’t come on you may have a problem and a wet basement. Here’s a great option to consider, a sump pump with a battery back-up, this way if the power goes out during heavy storms the sump pump will keep running.
