Plumbing - Sump Pumps

A Sump Pump removes water from around your house's foundation. Water can collect near the foundation due to drain blockages, natural drainage from outside the home or leaks.


Care and Maintenance Tips

General Information

  • Maintaining your sump pump is critical in the first year of ownership of your home while your lawn is being established. Un-established lawns cannot absorb as much of the moisture and rainfall on your lot, which can cause excessive silt built up in crocks.
  • NEVER WORK ON A SUMP UNLESS THE PUMP IS UNPLUGGED FIRST.
  • Clean the crock of the sump pump and lubricate the float every 3 to 6 months. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to keep sump crocks and pump clean and free of debris.






* If you are in a Condo residence please refer to your Condo Association Documents to verify your responsibilities, if any, for the maintenance of these areas.
