How a Sump Pump Works
A sump pump is a device that helps prevent flooding in a home or building. They are installed in the lowest part of a crawl space or basement in a house. Usually they are placed in a pit that is dug for them. The water in a house naturally flows down to the sump pump through the effects of gravity. The sump pump transfers the water away from the house to keep it dry and prevent it from flooding.
You, as a homeowner, need a sump pump to keep your house from getting damaged by a flood. Most houses have to deal with the underground wetness that troubles the basement of a building. This can lead to flooding during a storm or the presence of mold and mildew from a wet basement.
