Thursday, November 3rd, 2022 by Caitlin Thompson


Getting your basement ready for the winter is something many people don’t even think about but is extremely necessary. With the holiday season fast approaching, you’re To-Do list is growing. Be sure to add sump pump winterization to the top of it! Our Midwestern winters are brutal, making it easy for your sump pump discharge line to freeze. When the line is frozen, water can’t get out, causing it to back up into your home. Year after year, families lose precious memories and mementos to floods and water damage that could have easily been prevented.
