It would be horrible if you have a finished basement and your sump pump stopped working. Do you have a battery back-up in the event your electric sump pump fails? This is a very important item to have when the power goes off during a storm as well.

If you have a battery backup sump pump, how old is the battery? Check your manual to see how often it needs to be replaced.

Does your homeowner's insurance cover damage due to sump pump failure? Some policies only offer it at an additional cost. Call your agent if you aren't sure. Damages in finished basements can be very costly, not only because of the furnishings that might get ruined, but things like electrical and drywall might need to be replaced too.

Please make sure that you aren't caught off-guard.
