What to Know About Sump Pumps
You might not know much about what a sump pump is and how it works, but that’s okay because our experts are here to help inform you. Sump pumps have an important job and keep your basement from being flooded. Sump pumps have float switches that get triggered when water reaches a specific level. Once that level is reached, the sump pump begins to remove water from your basement and relocates it to an outdoor area, such as a well or nearby storm drain. Sump pumps should have a battery-powered water-level alarm to ensure your family knows when potential flooding might occur if the sump pump malfunctions or overflows.
