Looking to protect your basement from flooding or water intrusion?

When we hear the weather forecast for prolonged rains, melting snow, we prepare our plumbing divisions in Leesburg, Alexandria, and Winchester for the sump pump repair calls. After we’ve had several inches of snow, it’s not typical in December to have days of 60 and 70 degree weather.Combine the melting snow with rain, and you have the perfect storm for a wet basement. If you have a sump pump, you’ll find yourself running into the basement to make sure your sump pump is in good working order. When the water starts rising, your sump pump is your life line!

You may have taken precautionary measures, like waterproofing your basement, to help protect against water entering your basement, but chances are if you have a sump pump and a hole in your basement floor, it’s there for a reason. Just remember to check your sump pump regularly, refer to the manufacturer’s manual, and have the number of a qualified plumber on hand–just remember 703-250-Flow.
