The sump pit is located below floor level to gather any excess water from your house. It protects your home from damage caused by water infiltration inside and beneath the building. Excess water from your home's drain tiles is removed with the help of a sump pump located above ground.
Keep a close eye for any warning signs that may indicate problems with your sump pit. It is highly recommended to examine your equipment every year and to notice if your sump pit drains very slowly, releases a strong smell or if your sump pump makes strange noises. Any debris such as dirt, gravel and sand should be removed from the sump pump to improve its efficiency. Any obstructions in the discharge line may strain the pump and cause it to overheat and break down.
