We recommend home owners self-test all your sump pump equipment 3-4 times a year to help ensure proper function and use. The Best time to do this is during a heavy storm event, so you can see how well the pump is working against the amount of rain that’s present, and you don’t have to carry pails of water or artificially fill it using a garden hose.
Taking these steps will ensure your sump pump equipment can operate when needed. Also, you become familiar with how it operates, and if something is defective or wrong, you will know well in advance -- prior to needing it and having the equipment fail, resulting in flood damage!
If there is a secondary pump, perform all the above tests for it as well. Battery back-up pump systems should be tested as well. (Unplug the battery charger, requesting the battery to be used.)
We recommend the same above testing schedule, along with a yearly inspection and maintenance service visit to assess and check over-all pump equipment.
