Annual Sump Pump System Maintenance: Is It Important?
Whenever you have a water issue with your home and get it fixed, it can be easy to forget about and just let the system run. However, annual maintenance is really important for sump pump systems. This maintenance is only suggested once a year and can have great benefits.
The sump pump system installed in your home, when in peak condition, runs very efficiently and effectively, but over time it becomes clogged and used which decreases its efficiency and effectiveness. With a pump needing maintenance, you may see increased energy bills and will run the risk of damaging the pump that will cause the system to fail and need immediate attention. This is why we have an annual maintenance program and are on stand-by to schedule maintenance appointments for all of the sump pumps we install.
We want to keep your home safe and protected from water long term and encourage you to protect your investment. These appointments check everything from the discharge line to the downspout exits and we also make sure that other problems inside the area are not coming about. The important thing to remember is that, like everything, waterproofing systems can fail, but performing maintenance on the system from time to time can keep it all running smoothly.
