A sump pump is a special pump usually installed in a home’s basement. It is designed to siphon water build–up from crawlspaces and basements, and safely drain it through the waste water system. The operation of a sump pump is relatively simple. It removes water that has built–up in a sump pit either from flooding, high water table, or from leakage into the home. Once the water level reaches a certain point, the pump turns on and discharges the accumulated water away from the house, either into the waste water system or into the backyard. However, installation of a sump pump is more complicated. Homeowners should, therefore, hire a qualified plumbing professional for the installation, service and maintenance of the sump pump.

Benefits of a Sump Pump
• Sump pumps prevent flooding damage. The Liberty SJ10 sump pump, in particular, is able to work under extreme conditions where the main pump is unable to work due or fails due to cutting off of electricity.
• Sump pumps reduce the threat of mildew and mold caused by continual dampness inside a
basement from stagnant water.
• Flooding is a major cause of electrical fires. Sump pumps significantly reduce the risk of electrical fires.
Sump pumps are useful for homes situated in areas with a high water table. Homeowners need to contact a qualified plumbing professional to install a sump pump, since the pump must hook up correctly to the drainage system.
