Plumbers preparing for heavy rain

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - With rain expected throughout the weekend, local plumbers are keeping busy making sure neighbors homes don't flood. Local plumbers tell Cleveland 19 they are already getting a lot of phone calls from people saying their pumps are broken. Plumbers want us to keep these tips in mind if you have a sump pump.

  • Look out for water levels being high and your pump not kicking on
  • Listen to see if your sump pump is turning on and off in a short amount of time

Cleveland 19 will be working with local plumbers throughout Thursday to see how they are helping neighbors keep their homes from the threat of flooding.
