You may have heard of a sump pump but also may question what it does: This piece of equipment is submersible. A sump pit is an important part of a home’s waterproofing system; it is a special piece of equipment that sits at the bottom of a pit. The pit has enough water to fill it to a set level. When enough water enters the pit, it triggers the device to begin pumping water out of the pit and into a drainage area. The primary job of the sump pump is to remove ground water channeled into the pit to another drainage area away from the home so the water cannot damage the home’s foundation or your basement’s interior.

The pit is typically the lowest point of the crawlspace or some other area in your basement. When you have a sump pump installed, the groundwater that surrounds the outer edge of the foundation of your home gets channeled into a drain system a professional puts along the foundation’s base.

Water naturally moves into perforated pipe work and the system diverts the water into the sump pit where the submersible sump pump will activate when a set water level triggers the device. Once the water is pumped out, the sump pump turns off again, thereby conserving energy during use. A float switch on the sump pump triggers the device into action and forces the device to remove the excess water that pours into the pit.

A sump pump is so-called because it pumps the water to a storm drain, detention pond, or dry well. The water inside the pit must accumulate and reach a preset level before the sump pump will begin working: This ensures the device does not run all the time, thereby ensuring an eco-friendly use of the equipment, efficiency, and the longevity of the equipment in question. Many new homes have sump pump installation already installed in basement areas. Older houses have units retrofitted when waterproofing the basement to prevent the disastrous results of flooding.

You will need to give the check valve and the flow a quick look over to see if they are both obstruction free and moving freely.
