Here are some quick tips for homeowners to avoid having water in your basement.
1. Move the snow away from your home so it will drain away from your foundation
2. Make sure downspouts are attached and extnd at least 2 meters away from your foundation
3. Make sure your sump pump is working properly. Consider installing one - you DO NOT require a permit from the City of Regina to install a sump pump.
4. Consider installing a mainline sewer backwater valve - you MUST obtain a building permit from the City of Regina for this one.
Also keep in mind that this spring will be a great time to buy a home because you will know that it has a dry basement.
