How Does a Sump Pump Work?
For homes in areas that receive a lot of rain or are in low-lying locations with limited drainage, a sump pump is a vital part of the home. The excess water from around your home will flow into a sump basket located in your basement. The water that flows into the basket will raise a mechanism called a float, once the float rises to a certain point it will switch the pump on. At that point the water will pump out of the basket and out of your home.
Maintaining these units is of the utmost importance. If you only use your sump pump for emergencies, make sure you test it every now and then by pouring a bucket of water into the tank. If the pump triggers, your sump pump is working fine. However, if nothing happens, it may have seized and you should look for professional sump pump repair.
