When your sump pump stops working, it can be a major headache. Here are a few tips to help you deal with a sump pump power failure:
-If you have a backup generator, turn it on and plug in your sump pump.
-If you don’t have a backup generator, try to find someone who does. Ask your neighbors, friends, or family members if they have a generator and could let you borrow it.
-If you can’t find anyone who has a generator, try to find a nearby store that sells them. Once you have a generator, follow the instructions to set it up properly.
–Install a good water alarm. This will alert you if there is any water infiltration in your home.
-Once you have your backup generator up and running, plug in your sump pump and turn it on.
