The heart and soul of every waterproofing system is the sump pump. Basically, a sump pump is an appliance that pumps water out away from your home, thereby preventing water build-up and floods.
While a home’s sump pump should ideally be checked everyday, we all know that’s not possible. Instead, try to check if it’s working as it should before any major storm. At the minimum, your sump pump should be check thoroughly at least once a year.
