How Sump Pump Work

How does a sump pump work?

Sump pumps pump water from your basement and away from your house. A sump is a naturally formed pit, typically a hole carved beneath the main surface of your basement floor. The sump pump is housed in this pit, known as a basin. The pump is outfitted with valves that detect rising water levels or pressure. When the water level rises too high, sump pumps use a discharge line to immediately pump extra water out of the basement and away from your property. The effluent line connects the sump pump to a specified drainage area.
