What Is A Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a small pump that is installed in the deepest measure of the basement (or crawlspace). The sump pump helps to maintain the area beneath your home dry and it also keeps it from flooding. Typically, sump pumps are made to fit in a particular created sump pits. Water will flow into the sump pit through drains or by water flowing naturally through the soil.

Sump pump manufacturers suggest that you inspect your sump pump one time a year. Pumps that run more often because of a higher water table, water drainage, or weather conditions need to be checked more often. When inspecting a sump pump and cleaning it, dirt, gravel, sand, and other fragments should be taken out to increase proficiency and prolong the lifespan of the pump. These obstructions can also reduce the pump’s capability to drain the sump, and might make the sump overflow.
