Sump Pump Installation

A sump pump is designed to remove water from the lowest point in your home using a drainage pipe. Therefore, a sump pump installation is a preventive measure against the risks of flooding. Most homeowners who have one installed look at it as insurance against potential flooding. For a basement that is finished or used for storage, flooding can be devastating.

How a Sump Pump Operates

Sump pump systems begin with the digging of a pit in your basement or lowest point of your home. The deep hole or pit is what is called the sump. The pump aspect is then installed directly above the sump, with a pipe leading from the pump out the house.

When the water level gets high enough, the sump pump will turn on and then pump all of the water out of your home.
