Three Reasons to Get a Sump Pump Inspection Before Spring

Do you remember the last time you had the sump pump system in your Buffalo home evaluated by a professional? Many homeowners take their sump pumps for granted until their systems stop working and things go awry. Regular or annual inspections can ensure your sump pump system is operating at an optimal level while preventing the need for costly repairs in the future. Here are three important reasons to get your sump pump inspected:


With the spring season comes heavy rainfall and frequent flooding. The increase in precipitation results in your sump pump having to work even harder. Routine sump pump system inspections from The Plumber, Heating and Cooling in Buffalo will give you peace of mind that you can rely on your sump pump to function properly during even the most severe weather conditions. An annual inspection ensures your pump can consistently perform at peak performance and prevent flooding, despite heavier than normal rainfall.

Back-up power

In the event that electrical service is disrupted due to a heavy storm, your sump pump’s back-up battery must be ready to go. An inspection will check your back-up battery to confirm it’s fully operational so you can rest assured your pump will continue functioning even if the power goes out unexpectedly. And, if you don’t currently have a back-up sump pump, the winter is a great time to have one installed!

Extended sump pump lifespan

A regular inspection is key to extending the lifespan of your sump pump system. This is because inspections often uncover minor issues that have the potential to result in major, costly problems if left unaddressed. By having your system evaluated by a professional, you’ll have the opportunity to make timely repairs that may prevent the need for a full system replacement.

It’s best to hire a professional plumber to conduct your annual sump pump inspection.
