Sump pumps are used to prevent flooding in basements after heavy rains or any time groundwater isn’t able to drain on its own. They are an integral part of your home, so it’s important to make sure they’re always in proper working order.
If your sump pump isn’t draining properly, it may need repairs. And if it’s a particularly old sump pump system, you should replace it with something newer and more efficient to really reduce your chances of flooding.
