Roger the Plumber announced a promotion offering a $50 credit towards sump pump maintenance to help homeowners prevent flooding. Roger the Plumber has found time and time again, sump pumps fail from lack of maintenance. Springtime maintenance services have shown to be the best, as the Kansas City area takes on the greatest increase of groundwater and heavy rainstorms from now, until the end of the summer season.

Poor water drainage, a high water table, or wet weather conditions require sump pumps to run frequently and should be examined more often. Sump pump maintenance will involve removing dirt, gravel, sand, and other debris to increase efficiency and extend the life of the pump.

Home Advisor has estimated homeowners spend as much as $7,000 to restore or repair major water damage. In comparison, the national average for sump pump maintenance is $488. The Sump and Sewage Pump Manufacturers Association recommends quarterly sump pump maintenance and service.

4 Eco Services General Manager Ian Williams says, “Homeowners should invest in regular plumbing maintenance, especially sump pump maintenance, to avoid the costs of repairing damage caused by major leaks. We believe in prevention and encourage homeowners to take advantage of our special offer.” Roger the Plumber, promotion must be redeemed by May 31, 2019 and presented at the time of service.
