The Basics of Sump Pumps
Sump pumps keep water out of spaces that tend to collect water, such as a basement or a crawlspace. They are helpful at keeping rainwater away from buildings which helps prevent damage to the structure.
These pumps only work when there is water that needs to be pumped out of the area. It is important to test your sump pump regularly to make sure it is working properly. This helps avoid costly repairs.
