Spring is here, that means the ice is melting, the rain is coming, and your home’s plumbing is far from your mind. It shouldn’t be however, and here are some quick tips to make sure your plumbing system is ready to rock and roll so you can avoid calling your local plumber.
- Check your sump pump
- A faulty sump pump can spell disaster during the rainy days of spring! You can avoid waking up to a pool of water in your basement by testing your pump. Installing a backup sump pump is also a practical idea to consider. Doing so will prevent issues in the event that your main sump pump fails, or if you lose power. Don’t have a sump pump? Give us a call and we can have one installed quickly!

Whether the leak is coming from the spout or the seal, we strongly suggest immediate action to eliminate any further damages and wasted money.
- Inspect your lawn
- Whether its sticks, leaves, pretty much any type of debris can lead to blockages in your drain system—especially your sump pump discharge line. Making sure your yard & gutters are clear is a simple way to minimize the chance of a clog and keep the good times flowing!
