The holidays are over and if you are like me, the clean up is the worst part. Packing up the decorations, tearing down the tree, and lugging the boxes to the basement rank as one of the “humbug” chores associated with this holiday. While you are putting the boxes away in the basement, take a few minutes to check your sump pump to make sure that it is clean and working properly.
Here are a few guidelines to follow:
1. Fill sump pit with water to make sure the pump is operating.
2. Check to insure pump is discharging water.
3. Make sure the intake of the pump is not clogged with any debris.
WAYNE Pumps Silent and Energy Saving Pump Systems Featured on WEtv Network Oct 31, Nov 1 and Nov 12, 2010
The Women’s Entertainment Network (WEtv) taped a segment highlighting WAYNE’s Silent Sump Pump System and the Automatic Green Utility Pump with expertise from Charles Murphy, Director of Business Development for WAYNE Pumps. The show will air on WEtv in November 2010 in a special show entitled Designing Spaces/Think Green. In the segment, Charles walks the host, Jon Osbeck, through WAYNE Pumps’ innovative “layers of protection” designed to protect homeowners’ #1 investment – their home.
Jonathan Stansberry, manufacturing engineer for WAYNE Pumps and wife Erika offered up their home and basement for the show’s demonstrations of “live” flooding! This set the scene for the Automatic Utility Pump with iSwitch technology, an energy saving utility pump that turns on automatically when it senses water. The Silent Sump Pump system with wireless alarm was then easily installed on-camera, as Charles explained its quiet operation.
WEtv. is dedicated to women’s programming. Designing Spaces/Think Green will air at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 31, Monday, November 1 and Friday, November 12, 2010, so be sure to tune in!
