Preparing Sump Pumps for Winter

Preparing Sump Pumps for Winter by Sump Pump Geeks

Winter means freezing cold winds and snowy sceneries that tag along with the necessity to take precautions to protect ourselves as well as our homes. Similarly, your sump pump system needs attention too in this harsh & cold climate. 

A sump pump is usually located at the lowest level in the basement or crawl space and is likely to freeze when the temperature drops. If ice builds up in the pump basin, water cannot flow freely and will eventually freeze completely. When the water in the sump basin begins to freeze, the pump has to work extra hard to move the water away from your home. The pump’s inability to discharge water can cause it to overheat or fail.

Extensive Care for Your Sump Pump in Winter

Let Sump Pump Geek inspect your sump pump and ensure it is ready for the winter. We have various efficient solutions that prevent your sump pump from freezing. Sump pumps do not run as often in the winter months as they do the rest of the year. If it does kick in to remove excess water, even in the wintertime, you want to make sure it does so without ice blocks creating unnecessary trouble.
