Schedule Routine Maintenance for Sump Pumps with Innovative Basement Authority

To bring peace of mind to homeowners by providing maintenance for sump pumps to avoid wet and/or flooded basements.

Fargo, ND - March 18, 2019

Innovative Basement Authority is preparing to help homeowners throughout the States prevent and manage basement flooding through basement waterproofing and proper maintenance of sump pumps. When home owners have a perimeter drainage system installed in the home, the sump pump is the main line of defense against a basement flood. However, your sump pump is only as powerful or reliable enough based on how well it is maintained!

Innovative Basement Authority is urging homeowners to schedule their sump pump maintenance ASAP as appointment availability decreases industry-wide around this time of year.

Contact us today to schedule your maintenance appointment.

Please be aware that a sump pump discharge line (exterior hose) could freeze or be frozen.

If it was forgotten to disconnect the exterior hose for the winter, Innovative suggests using a screw driver to open up the basket to visually inspect the pump / pumps. Our team suggests this if the pump runs year-round, causing home owners to keep the exterior hose connected throughout the winter. If there is currently water in the basket and it has an oily appearance, the pump might need to be replaced. If the basket does not have water in it, Innovative suggests running water in the basket to flood check the pump to be sure it will still draw water out of the residence.

If home owners are concerned that something doesn't look right, please give us a call immediately! Our service technicians are available to perform a maintenance exam on your system.
