A sump pump is an electric device that is installed at the bottom of a sump basin (pit) below the floor. Its purpose is to pump rainwater that has been drained from an Exterior or Interior Drain Tile System to a suitable discharge location.
You may also have what is called an ejector pump in your basement. It is designed to pump sewage to an overhead sewer or septic field. It should have two pipes coming out of a sealed cover. One pipe is the pump discharge to the sewer and the second is a vent usually going out through the roof. If you are experiencing any problems with an ejector pump, we recommend contacting a licensed plumber.
Not all homes are built with a sump pump. Some homes have an Exterior Drain Tile System connected directly to the sewer. This is more commonly found in older homes.
