Proper sump pump installation for homes built before 1990

Posted on Oct 24, 2017 by Maxim

Regardless of where you live in Toronto, you want to make sure that you guard your home against basement flooding. If you have a home that was built before 1990, you might not have a sump pit with a pump, simply because sump pump installation was not mandatory at the time.



By making sure that you have a weeping tile to move the water away from your home and discharge that goes into the sump pit, you can then use your sump pump installation to pump the pit outwards through the discharge pipe into the drain. At that point, the water moves away from your house.
