Protect Your Home with a Sump Pump
If you don’t have a sump pump in your basement or lower level, you are at risk of flood damage. A sump pump collects the water from the ground in and around your basement and foundation and pumps it from below the ground to above the ground keeping water levels under control. When it rains, water can collect quickly and if the ground is already saturated, water will start to find its way into your home. Especially if your lower level is finished, don’t take the risk. Have a sump pump installed by Home Comfort.
Don’t Assume Your Sump Pump Works – Do This Quick Test
The bad thing about sump pumps is you don’t know that it’s not working until there’s water in your home and damage is done. At Home Comfort Experts, we always encourage our customers to perform a monthly sump pump test. It’s easy and will give you added piece of mind.
- Fill a five gallon bucket with water
- Dump it in the sump pit
- Make sure the pump kicks on and the water drains out.
It’s also a good idea to check the outdoor drain spout to make sure it’s not clogged. If a sump pump repair is necessary, our technicians will complete the job for you.
Battery Back-Up Sump Pump
Many homeowners want a little extra insurance against flooding so they install a battery back-up sump pump. These clever sump pumps don’t need electricity to run, so if your power happens to go out (which is all too common during thunderstorms when you need your sump pump the most) the back-up sump pump will kick on as soon as it senses that the main pump isn’t working. That way, your home is protected even if you aren’t home and your electricity goes out.
