Checking my sump pump

I can’t believe the amount of rain that my good friend and I have gained this month.

My basement was on the verge of flooding however luckily my good friend and I didn’t see any water.

I was absolutely lucky because my sister is moving to a modern loft so a lot of her clothes plus furniture has been stored in my basement for a few months now. When my good friend and I get a lot of rain there are multiple things that I have to check. For instance my basement plus also how much water my outdoor plants get. I have plants that are planted in big flowering pots that rest outside. If they get too much water they will die so I like to transport them under my porch so they don’t drown. I also like to check my sump pump. What I do is I check the discharge line that is at the side of my house. I clear out any debris that is around it that could be blocking the water that is coming out of it. When my good friend and I get a lot of rain it also means that a thunderstorm has come along with it. There have been particular times where our power has gone out so I will check on my sump pump again because my pump relies on electricity. Eventually I would like to talk to my plumber the next time she does a repair on my loft to see if I can get a back up battery system in case the power ever goes out, but checking on your sump pump is important especially when it rains you don’t want your basement to overflow due to your sump pump not laboring.
