WINTER TIPS FOR
YOUR SUMP PUMP

Make sure your sump pump is working properly. Slowly pour a few gallons of water into the pit to make sure the pump turns on.

If you have a dual cord pump, both cords should be unplugged. If you can hear a humming sound when you plug in the pump cord, this means that it’s working as it should. Remember to plug everything back in though after testing.

If you have a single cord pump, pour several gallons of water into the pump pit until the float rises. You should hear the pump turn on. While on, make sure the water is pumping out as it should, and the pump turns itself off when the water is removed.

Locate the sump pump exit pipe and remove any dirt and debris. Make sure that the water is being directed well away from your home’s foundation.
