Water accumulating near foundation
If there is water accumulation around the foundation of your house because that is where your downspouts drain or your above-ground extensions get knocked off, it is imperative that you extend your downspouts your downspouts away from your house permanently. Dumping large amounts of water near your foundation can not only cause your sump pump to work excessively, but the splashing and runoff from the downspouts can erode valuable landscaping. Even more crucial, excessive wetting of the soil around your foundation can cause the underlying soil to move unevenly, which possibly can lead to structural problems.
