How (and Why) To Maintain Your Sump Pump

Radon Systems LLC

Maintaining your sump pump is essential to ensure zero radon gas levels in your home. Radon is an odorless and colorless gas that can cause serious health problems, so it’s important to keep radon levels in your home as low as possible. Here are some tips from Radon Systems LLC for maintaining your sump pump. These preventative measures can greatly help keep your home safe from radon gas.

Check the sump pump regularly. Check the inlet and outlet screens, hoses, and pump for any blockages or damage. Clear any debris from the pump and hoses, and check that the pump is working properly.

Make sure the sump pump is connected to an effective radon gas-reduction system. For example, a sump pump with a radon gas-reduction system can effectively reduce radon levels in your home.

Make sure the sump pump is installed in an area of your home that is free from moisture and humidity. Moisture and humidity can cause the sump pump to break down and not operate as effectively.

Make sure the sump pump is the right size and capacity for the area it’s serving. The size of the sump pump should match the area it’s serving to ensure that it’s pumping the correct amount of water, and to reduce the risk of flooding.

Keep the sump pump’s interior clean and free from debris. This will help the pump to run smoothly and efficiently.

By following these tips, you can ensure that your sump pump is in good working order and can help to keep your home’s radon gas levels low. When you need a radon professional to ensure your sump pump and radon mitigation system is in proper working order, contact Radon Systems LLC.
