What is a Sump Pump?

    Sump PumpWhen it comes to preventing flooding in your home, sump pumps are one of the most effective ways to keep your basement, crawl space or under any type of slab foundation dry and free from water damage.

    A sump pump is a mechanical device used to remove groundwater (i.e., water that naturally flows below ground level) from beneath homes, buildings, or other structures.

    The word sump comes from conduit or reservoir. The sump’s job is to collect excess water that accumulates in low-lying areas of your home (basement, crawl space, etc.) because of poor drainage, heavy rainfall, or flooding.

    There are two types of sump pumps, submersible (pumps mounted below ground) and external (pumps that sit on top of the ground). Each type comes with its own set of advantages, so it’s important to know which one is the best option for your home. That’s where the TYCO Plumbing experts come in, we will evaluate which type is ideal for your situation and present the optimal solution.
