Sump Pump

Along with making sure your pump is operating properly, it’s a good strategy to make sure your pump discharges where you need. Otherwise, your pump could be working against you, not with you. Is the water flowing away from your home? Is there plenty of area for it to flow away and keep flowing? If the discharge line is installed with a splash guard, is your splash guard stable, and installed at the correct angle? Have any critters taken residency in your discharge line? That’s going to be a difficult challenge. Have the brackets or strapping worked loose?

It may seem tedious, but try to take a minute every now and then to look over the amenities of your home. You’ll notice quickly if something is amiss or out of place, and you’ll have more money in your pocket as reward for your awareness.
