Spring Rains Could Cause Sump Pump Failures.

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!

By the way, we have not even addressed the fact that you simply need a new one.  Whether it’s repair, a check-up, or a replacement the sump pump pro in Snohomish is Shawn Allen.  Shawn is THE Snohomish plumber serving the surrounding Seattle area.  Just give Shawn a call any time to check out your sump pump at (425) 367-4744.

1.  Spot the wrong questions so you are not preyed upon as an elderly person.
2.  Beware of those traveling in pairs playing “good cop…bad cop”.
3.  Make sure that watching a video inspection is really done live on YOUR property.
4.  Do a little research on the sewer cleaner that you hire.
