Sump Pumps

A sump pump is generally used to pump water out of an area that does not have enough elevation to gravity drain.  A sump pump generally consist of a sump, sump pump, check valve, valve box, and a high water alarm (to alert the homeowner that the water is too high), and an outtake pipe.  When necessary, sump pumps will be included in a French drain project, where the slope is not great enough.
