Ideally, the device ought to be located in your basement. We, however, recommend installing it as low as possible to achieve the best outcome. Clean out the basement before our technicians arrive and ensure they have plenty of room to do their work. We may have to cut away part of your concrete foundation and dig into the ground to make the device a permanent fixture on your premises.
After installs, you still have to invest in routine maintenance services. A top-quality device will not need much upkeep, although some servicing from time to time will keep in in excellent shape for longer. Make sure you invest in a backup battery that can come in handy in case of a power outage when you badly need to deal with floodwater.
It is also important to note that your device is not immune to freezing when the temperatures drop too low during the winter. It is hence important to plan on how to keep it warm. Another crucial thing to do is test it at least once after three months by pouring water into the hole and ensuring it disappears. If it fails to suck the water, you may need to schedule repairs.
