This is just a friendly reminder from the Kirkland Homes team to check your sump pump!

Edmonton (and area) has experienced a rainy and snow-filled spring. All of this water in the ground means that there's likely to be significant levels of saturation in the soil around your home. Please take a moment to examine your sump pump to ensure it is plugged in and working properly. If it's not functioning, there is the potential for a basement flood.  

Take a look at our short video to see how to inspect your sump pump. If you're not comfortable with performing this task, or if your sump pump requires maintenance, we suggest calling an expert. As homeowners are responsible for the care and upkeep of the home's sump pump, you can use the plumber of your choice. If you need the name of a plumber, Kirkland Homes uses Access Plumbing for sump pump inspections; the cost associated with this service is $117.
