Part Eleven - Time to Test the Sump Pump!

If water shoud come into your basement, you want to make sure that the ole' sump pump is in good working condition. Slowly pour several gallons of water into the sump pit to see whether the pump turns on. You should do this every few months, but especially after a long dry season or before a rainy one.

For more complete instructions for testing and maintenance, check your owner’s manual. Most sump pumps last about ten years.
