What is a sump pump?

If you have a basement or part of your home that is lower than ground level, chances are good that you have a sump pump. This pump will be in the ground under the lowest part of your home. When it rains or there’s a lot of groundwater, it will turn on and pump that water away so it doesn’t flood the lower levels of your home.

Can I test my sump pump?

You can! In fact, we recommend that you test your sump pump in Minneapolis regularly, especially when it is rainy or snowy. Just find the pump and open the lid. Fill it up slowly until the float rises to the line marked on the tub. At this point, the pump should turn on and quickly pump out all of the extra water.
