Checking my sump pump

I can’t feel the amount of rain that we have gained this month.

My basement was on the verge of flooding but luckily we didn’t see any water.

I was honestly fortunate because my brother is moving to a modern home so a lot of his clothes plus furniture has been stored in my basement for a few months now. When we get a lot of rain there are various 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 substantial flowering pots that kneel 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 we 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 he does a maintenance on my home to see if I can get a back up battery system in case the power ever goes out! 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 working.
