Don’t Let April Showers Bring May Flooding and Repairs!

April showers might bring May flowers, but they can also bring flooding and plumbing
nightmares if your systems aren’t up to par. For homeowners, the onset of spring also signals the
need to ensure that our plumbing systems are adequately prepared to handle the increased water
flow and potential challenges that come with it. At AA Service Co., we understand the
importance of ensuring your home’s plumbing is in top shape, especially when it comes to
critical components like sump pumps, ejector systems, and battery backups.

Are You Prepared for the Next Storm?
When was the last time you checked the age of your plumbing systems? Have you replaced
anything since you bought your home? Unfortunately, plumbing systems can fail suddenly and
catastrophically, with few warning signs beforehand. That’s why proactive replacement is crucial.
As the old saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Instead of waiting for
a plumbing disaster to strike, take proactive steps to ensure your home is protected. Proactively
replacing aging plumbing systems can significantly reduce the risk of flooding, leaks, and
subsequent damage.

When is the last time you’ve been in this room?

If its been 5-7 years, it is time to replace your pump!

Your Pump’s Age Matters:
Consider taking a visual tour of your mechanical room or the area housing your plumbing
systems. If it’s been 5-7 years since anyone has been in this space, it’s a clear indicator that your
pump may be due for replacement. Look for signs of wear and tear, and don’t hesitate to reach
out to professionals for a thorough assessment.
While many homeowners are diligent about replacing water heaters every 7-10 years, essential
components such as sump pumps, ejector systems, and battery backups often go unnoticed. It’s
essential to recognize that these systems have a typical lifespan of 5-7 years. Despite their crucial
role in safeguarding your home from water damage, they can degrade over time, leaving you
vulnerable to potential disasters.
Take a moment to reflect on the last time you inspected your mechanical room or checked on
your sump pump. Locate the manufacturing date on your pump, usually found on a tag attached
to the pump itself. This simple step can provide valuable insight into the age and potential
lifespan of your system.

Even if you’ve recently upgraded your plumbing system, it’s essential to consider whether you
have all the necessary support components to guarantee smooth operation when they’re truly put
to the test.
Have you thought about incorporating a duplex pump system to offer a fail-safe backup in case
of primary system failure or during extreme dewatering situations? What about ensuring
functionality even if a storm knocks out the power?
While new equipment is undoubtedly beneficial, without a power source, it remains inactive. Let
us introduce you to solutions like duplex sump pump systems, battery backups, or gas-powered
generators to keep your systems running seamlessly during power outages. Investing in these
options will provide you with the ultimate peace of mind, especially during those unpredictable
April storms.

Don’t wait until April showers catch you off guard this spring. Contact AA Service Co. today to
schedule a comprehensive inspection of your plumbing systems. Our team of experienced
professionals can identify potential vulnerabilities and provide proactive solutions to keep your
home dry and protected. Proactive replacement not only mitigates the risk of flooding, leaks, and
damage but also offers peace of mind and cost efficiency in the long run.
