Sump pumps are the heart of a basement waterproofing system, and it is crucial to have a fully functional system. Sump pump systems commonly are installed in the basement floor with metal basins, lids that rest on top, and openings for the discharge pipes. Some may not have lids at all. Metal basins can easily rust and corrode, and partial or nonexistent lids let water evaporate back into or flood the basement. This leads to unpleasant odors and moisture issues that defeat the purpose of the sump pump in the first place. Debris and other items also can easily fall into the system and damage the pump if the sump pit is not completely covered.
