Your Sump Pump, Battery Backups and Summer Rainstorms

In anticipation of summer rain, you may want to have your sump pump serviced and upgraded for added protection and capacity. A battery back-up sump pump is your last fail-safe to preventing catastrophic flooding and water damage to your home. It is an effective and viable (but short-term) back-up solution to preventing flooding in your home while a plumber fixes or replaces the primary pump.


Why You Should Invest in a Leak Detection and Prevention System

Pipes wear down. Water heaters break. Plumbing fixtures leak. It’s not a question of “if;” it’s a matter of “when.” According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average household’s leaks can account for nearly 10,000 gallons of wasted water each year. And with leaks in your home equating to roughly 10 percent of your water bill, having a smart home product, such as a leak and flood detection and prevention system like the LeakSmart Pro, will help protect your investment and provide peace of mind.
