Prepare for heavy rains that bring a swell of ground water by ensuring your sump pump and battery back-up sump pump are functioning properly. Flooded basements happen most often when thunderstorms knock out power.
That’s when your battery back-up pump kicks on, or at least it’s supposed to. When was the last time you checked the battery?
A basement can flood very quickly if your ground water control system isn’t working properly.
These key checks will keep your basement dry from rain water. We recommend an annual inspection of your ground water control system.
