Yesterday, I got one of those phone calls from my wife that I never want. “There’s water in the basement.” My wife heard one of our water alarms going off and found a puddle of water in the middle of the basement. She couldn’t figure out where it was coming from. I only work a few minutes from home, so I was able to get there pretty quick. I didn’t even have to go to where the puddle was. As soon as I went down into the basement, I knew what the issue was. The sump pump wasn’t pumping.
Why You Don’t Skip Routine Maintenance
Remember how I said I knew right away what the problem was? I knew that it was the sump pump because when I went downstairs, I saw that water was seeping up through the cracks in the floor, as well as around the perimeter. And this had happened once before, many years ago. That time, I went downstairs to feed our cats, and saw the same thing. And it was the same problem. The sump pump wasn’t working.
