Is your sump pump running in your basement? Do you know where it discharges your excess water?
If your pump hose is connected to your drain line, you are contributing to a major problem! With the
infiltration of rainwater during large downpours or wet seasons, sewer lines may become overloaded
and cause backups in basements or overflow at lift stations & the wastewater treatment plant. City ordinances
only allow sump pumps to drain into sanitary sewers from October 15 – April 15.
Remember to reconnect pumps to an outdoor outlet.
