Nearly any home that was built with a basement or crawlspace also has a sump pump pit, in which case a sump pump system is also necessary. This video examines how sump pumps protect your home. A sump pump is designed to detect water and pump it away from your home in order to prevent flooding and damage. However, it is important to have a backup system in place to provide battery power in the chance of an outage. Watch this clip to learn how to clean and test your sump pump.
