Why Should You Install a Sump Pump?

How Does It Work?
It’s much more than just a pump that will keep your crawlspace or basement dry. The system consists of several elements in addition to the sump pump, there is it the sump pit and the sump discharge pipe. When we installed your sump pump system we will first dig the pit, it may be called the pit or basin. This will either be in the basement floor in an area where water pools, or at the lowest area in the basement. The pit will be installed at least 10 inches from the wall. This is to ensure the foundation’s integrity is maintained. The sump pump is then placed within the sump pit, as well as the sump discharge pipe. When the soil outside becomes saturated with water, the pit fills up with the excess water. This works to redirect the water from your home, thus saving you from experiencing water damage. Once the water levels in the sump pit have been reduced, the sump pump will turn off.
