Testing Your Sump Pump
Outdoor Pipe – If you are wondering how your pump is doing, you can find the pipe that holds the water from the sump pump to the outdoors and makes sure that it is clean. Dirt and leaves from the outside can get stuck in this and end up clogging the pipe up. Cleaning it out regularly will help avoid this.
Test Your Pump – Just like with any other piece of equipment, you should test your pump to make sure that it is working properly. Just remove the lid and add water to it. If the pump does not immediately turn on and start working, this is a sign that something could be wrong. It could be as simple as a repair or you may need to have a replacement done. It should also itself off when it is done. If your sump pump does not do these tasks, give us a call.
