How a Sump Pump and Pit System Works

A Sump Pump is used to remove water that has accumulated in the surrounding pit as a result of excess water collecting below or around the foundation of your investment. The pump then pushes the excess water through a drainage pipe to a place where it will no longer be problematic.

A Sump Pump system is extremely effective in investment properties that are prone to basement flooding or that sit below the water table level. 

Sump Pumps can:

  • Reduce dampness in a basement
  • Stop harmful mold from growing
  • Protect your valuables from water flooding


These additional recommendations are like installing peace of mind.  

Having a battery back-up for your sump pump is one of our top recommendations. It will aid in the protection of your investment from water damage by boosting into action during power outages or when your primary sump pump fails. Having the reassurance that you’re backed-up when the unexpected happens, allows you to concentrate on what really matters.

Installing an alarm on your pump gives you 24/7 access to monitor your system and alerts you to any changes in operating conditions within minutes. Whether you are at home, on vacation, at work, or anywhere else in the world, you can communicate with your system and be confident that your home’s water systems are functioning correctly.

It is important to clean and inspect your pump yearly as the water draining into the pit can carry small amounts of debris that can become odorous or even clog your pump, causing it not to work. Having an Impact Plumber come out and flush the pit and inspect the pump yearly is recommended. This will ensure your investment is protected and your system is working as it should.
