 When Should I Replace My Sump Pump? #infographic

A sump pump is a vital component of your home's drainage system. It is a pump located in the tiniest portion of the basement, used to pump water stored in a tank. The sump basin is set up to remove any water collected in the basement from drains that are part of the waterproofing scheme. Water that could come from rain, damaged pipes or groundwater, funnels into the basin and then safely filters out of your home before it can cause harm.

Under your flooring in the sump pit, your sump pump is possibly hidden from sight. In the field there will be an access panel, so engineers can fix it or remove it. Often, the sump pump is clearly located in the utility room. Because flood damage to your home can be devastating, you want to ensure your sump pump is well maintained and in excellent working order.

Otherwise, you could end up with some very expensive damage if flooding occurs. Sump pumps used to be used only in areas or regions where there is a problem with heavy rain and regular flooding, but they are usually included in the national new home buildings. By sending off water they can help remove humidity downstairs. Sump pumps must be installed in your particular city, in compliance with any plumbing code or local regulations.
