What is a sump pump? 

A sump pump removes ground water from a pit in the basement and it goes to a storm drain.  when the water level rises in the sump pit, a float switch activates the sump pump, forcing water out of the pit. The water then is discarded out away from the home.

Sump pumps are a must in areas that experience heavy rains and heavy flooding. Basement flooding is usually caused by a faulty sump pump. The fair Plumber recommends zoller brand sump pumps due to their high efficiency rating and over all quality of the pumps zoller makes.

What causes a sump pump to be faulty?

  • Power 

  • Float is stuck
