With winter finally releasing its grip and the spring thaw and rains are upon us it’s time to start thinking about your sump pump. Sump pumps can be an item of great frustration and financial burden but in the end can save the day.
Here are a couple of tips to help you make sure your sump pump is ready for spring.
- Make sure the breaker is on and if it is on a G.F.I. circuit make sure it is not tripped.
- Shut power off to the sump pump remove the lid and check for any foreign objects that may have got in to the pit and could prevent the sump pump from turning on or never shutting off.
- Many times in early spring your outside tile line that the sump pump drains in is still frozen. If it is, install a temporary drain tile across your yard to prevent your pump from failing due to overheating.
