Prevent Basement Flooding in Northeast Ohio
As we get closer and closer to the end of winter, there is one thing on many home and business owner's minds- "Is my basement going to flood?" Spring is just around the corner, and with it comes snowmelt and lots of rain. Is your basement ready?
Sump Pumps Help You Avoid Flooded Basements
Sump pumps are the number one way to prevent your basement from flooding. However, sump pumps are mechanical, and no matter how expensive the brand you have or how new, there is always a chance that it can fail, leaving you with a wet basement.
Double Pump System
We always recommend having a double pump system in your home, especially if you experience frequent flooding in heavy rains. The double pump system acts as a fail-safe so that if your main pump malfunctions, you're still protected.
When you have a double pump system, the secondary pump is usually a battery-powered pump that can give you a lot of insights into your sump pump. We recommend PumpSpy battery-powered sump pumps because they are reliable and have a lot of great features.
It comes with an app that connects directly to the Wi-Fi, it sends you notifications, lets you know what's going on with the pump, tells you the history of the pump, what it's done, how many times it runs.
Sump Pump Maintenance and Replacement
If you do not have a double pump system and you are concerned about your sump pump performance as spring draws near, have a professional inspect your pump. We suggest that you need a new sump pump installation every six years and an inspection every three years.
