How Does a Sump Pump Work?
A sump pump is installed in your basement or another low area of your home. It connects to a drain system and pumps out water that collects in the sump basin.
Then, it redirects the water away from your home, helping to protect against water damage.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the different types of sump pumps?
Pedestal sump pumps have a lower upfront cost than submersible sump pumps, but they are louder and need more maintenance.
Submersible sump pumps operate quietly and are more durable but more expensive and complicated to install.
The type of sump pump you choose depends on your home, needs, and budget.
How do I test my sump pump?
Homeowners can, and should, regularly test their sump pump. To test a sump pump, pour a gallon of water into the sump pit and make sure the float switch activates the pump.
Then, watch as it pumps the water out of the pit to ensure it’s being sent away from the house.
Finally, listen for strange noises and check for any signs of leakage, rust, or poor operation. If you notice any issues, call for professional sump pump repair.
Should I use a battery- or water-powered backup sump pump?
Water-powered sump pumps are a great option if you rely on a municipal water source since they can supply the required water pressure.
Battery-backup sump pumps are generally more affordable than water-powered sump pumps and can be used in homes that rely on well water.
