Sump Pump Tips
We’ve had an unseasonably mild winter so far. As a result, many of the precipitation that has occurred has been rain, as opposed to snow. This increases the risk for excess water that has the potential to cause water damage. Basement flooding can be extremely costly, both from a financial standpoint, as well as sentimentally, as stored items may be damaged.
The first step to avoid this type of water damage is to make sure that you have a sump pump, and that it is is good working order. One step that you can take is to connect your sump pump to generator backup. This ensures that if you lose power due to weather, the pump will continue to combat water that comes into your home.
Another step that can be taken is to inquire if you are able to add sump pump failure coverage to your homeowner insurance policy. This type of coverage can protect you in the event that your sump pump fails, or cannot keep up with the rate of water accumulation.
