Recently storms and rains have been abundant. We have seen our share of home owners not prepared for them. Either they were depending on a very old sump pump and system, or had no back up in place for a power outage. If your primary sump pump is older than 8-10 years old we suggest having a new pump installed. If you have no back up in place you should have us look at your situation and see what type is right for your home.
