Functions and Benefits of Sump Pumps

Essentially, a sump pump is a device that's designed to keep the lower part of your home dry by moving water out of your basement. The pump itself sits in a carved out hole. This hole is called a basin, and it's usually located just below the surface of your basement floor. The pump has special valves that keep track of water levels.

If water levels become too high, the pump kicks in and removes the excess water through a discharge line. This connects the pump to your preferred designated drainage area, which could be a dry well, a pond or creek, or a neighborhood drain. Benefits associated with sump pumps include:

  • Prevent flooding
  • Protect against sewer backups
  • Keep basement humidity levels low
  • Reduce the risk of issues with mold and mildew
  • Improve indoor air quality
