So what is a sump pump, you ask? A sump pump is usually an electric pump that is placed in the basement of a home, and used to pump water from the basement to outside the home. Sometimes sump pumps drain the water into the house’s plumbing system, and sometimes they simply pump the water outside away from the home. United Sewer & Drain will help you decide which option is best for you.

Sump pumps normally work in combination with a sump pit. The sump pit is simply a hole dug into the ground, generally in the basement of a house, which allows water to collect into it. The pump then pumps the water out of the sump pit.

A basement sump pump is most often used in cases where the house’s basement is below the water table level, and in places where flooding is common. Sump pumps can be very useful. Particularly as a precaution for all homes which have basements. When rain comes the soil around your home’s foundation gets wet, and that water can leak into the basement. Even just an inch or so of water on the basement floor can do extensive damage. That can be quite expensive as well. Particularly if you have a finished basement with furniture in it.
