What Is A Sump Pump?

12/30/2017 (Permalink)

"Some homes with basements or crawl spaces are protected from ground water damage by a network of drainage tubes around the foundation. These direct water into a shallow pit, or sump, where a sump pump pushes the water out and away from the house through a discharge pipe.

Sump pumps work automatically each time water fills the sump, making them easy to forget about. Don’t. A damaged or broken pump can quickly allow water to overflow the sump and damage your basement." Read more on the Lowes site for types of sump pumps and more!
