There are several ways that water can gather in your basement; a foundation below the water table, rain causing the home’s perimeter drains to fail, or a pipe bursts in your home. Sump pumps require a nearby GFCI outlet and should be backed up by battery because of the possibility of a power outage. There are two basic types of sump pumps, pedestal and submersible. Pedestal pumps have the motor mounted above the sump and usually last longer. Submersible pumps have the motor installed inside the pump and typically need to be replaced more frequently.
