A sump pump is an essential part of your house that helps keep rain and groundwater from getting into your basement. A sump pump pit collects water from underneath or around your house, which is subsequently pumped out of your house and away from the foundation. A sump pump requires routine maintenance to maintain it in a good condition just like any other system or equipment you could have in your house. You can anticipate that your basement sump pump can go into action once the snow melts or the rain begins to fall, even if it may be idle for the majority of the year. At Heaney Plumbing & Heating - Warren our plumbing contractor makes sure any household located in Warren, MI has proper maintenance or service.
How often should you give maintenance?
Our experts recommend at the very least inspecting and maintaining your sump pump once a year. However, attempt to ensure that the sump pump is operational multiple times during the year since it is important to a functional home. Additionally, some sump pumps require cleaning every month.
Why hire a plumbing contractor?
