Sump Pumps

Once the weeping tile has collected the groundwater and drained it into the sump basin (aka sump liner or holding tank), it must be pumped out. The sump pump turns on once the water level in the basin reaches a certain height and pumps the water out.

As the sump-pump is the final and most important step in removing the water collected by the drainage system, it is essential that it be properly installed to specific standards and routinely checked. LETY Construction also recommends that the sump pump be properly supported with a back-up pump and alarm.
