LENEXA, KS, March 10, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — The sump pump plays a critical role in the home’s plumbing system. During the rainy season, the sump pump is activated once the water level has reached a certain point, and begins to pump water out of the pit and away from the home’s foundation. The sump pump system includes a discharge pipe, sump pit, and drainage channels.

Rainy seasons increase the risk of flooding basements and crawl spaces, particularly if a home’s sump pump is clogged or the pipes have cracked. That’s why it’s important to take care of maintenance before the rainy season to help avoid emergencies and costly repairs.

“Over the years, Roger the Plumber has noticed that homeowners who take proactive steps to maintain their home have fewer emergencies. But those who do not call Roger The Plumber for emergency service,” said Mike Paredez, General Manager. “I wish they had taken simple steps before the rainy season to protect their home’s sump pump system.”

Professional sump pump maintenance only takes about 60 to 90 minutes, but could help prevent hours and even days of repair and restoration necessitated by water damage. During a maintenance visit, Roger The Plumber technicians will test the sump pump, test the outlet, clean the inlet screen, test the backup pump (if applicable), and make recommendations for repair or further service.
