Fall Maintenance Tips to ready your Home for Winter: Sump Pumps

Fall Maintenance Tips If these last few weeks are any indication of what’s to come, we are going to have a very wet fall and winter. Are you ready? More importantly, is your home ready? From time to time, we will address Fall Maintenance Tips to ready your Home for Winter. This week we are going to take a closer look at Sump Pumps.

It is very important to make sure there is power to your sump pumps and that all exterior drains are free of leaves and other debris, which could potentially clog the drains and keep the sump pump from doing its job. It is also important to ensure your sump pump meets new standards.

The new code requires that even sump pumps need to be on GFI circuits, unlike years past. However, GFI outlets tend to trip much more easily than standard non-GFIi outlets. To help offset this potential problem TriStar can install new style GFI outlets with built-in alarms that beep when they are tripped, notifying you of the issue before you end up with a flooded basement.

These GFI outlets can be installed to replace any standard non-sounding GFI outlet in kitchens, bathrooms and garages, as well.
