Sump Pump Fact

Part #4: Home Water Problem Series

By: Steve Schoonover

For internal water management systems to function correctly, especially in crawlspaces, typically a large amount of water must build up in the pipe before flow to the sump pump occurs (if there is a sump pump in the system).

This means that sometimes the water never makes it to the pump. Consequently, the water you wanted removed may still be within your crawl space or basement!
