3.) do not buy the cheap sump pumps

4.) rodding your drains and sewer pipe every year, or so depending on your conditions

5.) avoid flushing baby wipes, paper towels, and feminine products

6.) check your windows, door jams, and foundations for signs of water damage frequently

7.) regularly inspect gutters, downspouts, and window wells to make sure there is no blockage and proper draining

8.) check the backs of appliances and look at the plumbing, or water supply lines to check for leaks and corrosion

9.) make sure windows and doors are closed when it is raining especially those leading to the basement

10.) run a slow drip through your plumbing supply lines and into the drains during the winter to keep water moving, so as to prevent freezing of the pipes

11.) keep your cabinet doors on outside walls that have plumbing supply lines in them open during the winter a little bit, because they can freeze even if the room is 70 degrees. Drafts and poor insulation can lead to plumbing supply lines freezing enough to break in an otherwise warm room.
