Tips for Basement Plumbing:
- Proper maintenance of the sump pump and basement drain will ensure that you don’t need to call for repairs. Test the sump pump every few months especially before the start of every rainy season. You can test this by pouring a good amount of water into the sump pit. This should automatically turn the machine on, pump out the water completely and switch off. If it doesn’t work, then it needs to be repaired by a professional.
- The floor drain in your basement does not get used that often, it is imperative to have the trap seal beneath it, filled with water manually. If in case the trap seal isn’t full, it can allow sewer fumes to enter your basement. Remember to pour a full bucket down the drain every once in a while.
