Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The downpour of rain has sump pumps in the area working overtime.

Laney's in Fargo has had an influx of service calls. They say calls poured in overnight about sump pump failures and flooded basements.

Unless you test your sump pump prior to a rain event, you won't find out it's not working until it is too late.

Carl Meckle, Service Plumber: "That's most likely when you're going to find it because you have all the moisture coming in and it's coming in quick. Last night, we had a tremendous amount of rain that came in a short period of time and everything got activated."
