If your basement floods the losses may be catastrophic. Not just the memories and other valuables that may be stored down there, but many people lose their furnace too. If that were not enough, the time, expense, and effort to clean up the mess just adds to the heartbreak.
Be sure your sump pump works properly before a spring rainy season. Unplug your pump and pour several buckets of water in the sump pit until it is full. Plug the pump in and if the pump doesn’t turn on, it’s time to replace the pump.
Be certain that your pump is not running constantly. That wear and tear adds up as it continuously cycles the water.
A back-up pump may be absolutely essential. The back-up pump must be run separately. Many back-up pumps fail because they are tied into the primary pump line. You need to guard against that.
Our AquaTech PLUS Dual Alternator System with battery back-up equipped with an alarm will alternate your two sump pumps so that neither of the pumps works too hard. It will also keep your sump pumps running in case of a power outage and alert you if one your pumps fail, so that you have ample opportunity to change it. Do not wait until a spring storm jolts you back to reality.
