Maintaining Your Sump Pump

Severe storms in Northeast Ohio can dump excessive amounts of water in a short period of time on us. Is your sump pump ready for the challenge? Here are a few things you can do to make sure your sump pump is ready for the challenge.

  • Make sure the pump is plugged in and that the circuit is on.
  • Inspect the pump’s power cord to insure that it is in good shape.
  • Clear any debris that may have fallen into the sump crock (We find a lot of dog & kid toys in there!)
  • Dump a large bucket of water into the crock and make sure the pump functions properly (If this doesn’t happen, it’s a good idea to call a plumber)
  • If you have a battery backup, check to see that the battery is fully charged.

Test Your Sump Pump

A great way to test your sump pump’s performance is to dump a 5-gallon bucket of water into it. The pump should come on and pump the water out. If this doesn’t happen, you need to replace the pump before a rainstorm arrives.

Any water that enters your home from outside is considered category 2, “Gray” water. Category 2 water losses can turn into full-blown mold issues in 24 hours or less due to the organic contaminants that may be contained in the water. If it’s too late and your pump has failed, and there is water everywhere, call us immediately.
