Yes, even here in the Seattle whenever it rains (statistics show that spring is NOT our rainiest time of year) sump pumps are in jeopardy of failing. With over-saturated soil, repeated showers with little interval between them cause problems. It is a simple equation…more water with nowhere to go equals hard work for your sump pump.
Just one good spring rain can cause your sump pump to fail if it hasn’t been serviced and maintained properly. Sump pumps need to be checked regularly—usually once in the spring and once in the winter. If you don’t have your sump pump checked at least once a year, you may need to be ready to handle residual damage to your home!
