Inspection & correction. It's smart to have your sump pump checked and maintained at least once a year. An experienced technician will know where to look for loose connections, excess sediment, and other conditions that can cause problems if they're not corrected.
Like any other mechanical appliance in your home, your sump pump system should have annual service and maintenance to be sure it is working at peak performance in your home.
Having a specialist stop by to check on your sump pump, basement drainage, and other components of your system will ensure that you find any potential problems before they find you!

If you don't have a battery backup sump pump installed in your home, even a properly functioning sump pump system will fail if there's a power outage or blown fuse.
Your service visit is a great time to have a battery backup added. Ask your technician for details!
Your sump pump runs on mechanical parts and, like all mechanical things, it can eventually break down. This is true with even the best pumps on the market.
If a sump pump warranty offers "free replacements," then you need to ask yourself: "When would I ask for my free replacement?"
Unfortunately, the answer to that question is: "After your pump has failed and your basement is wet".
A wet basement is far from "free!" The ideal decision is to find the most reliable basement waterproofer in your area -- one who installs a high-quality system and battery backup. The company should provide annual maintenance, helping you to keep your basement dry all the time!
