Charlotte Home Inspector Show How a Sump Pump Works

October 7th, 2010 · No Comments


Charlotte NC home inspector Preston Sandlin was recently inspecting a crawl space on a Charlotte home when he ran across a sump pump.  Fortunately this sump pump worked just fine.  In this video Preston ixpains how a sump pump works.  Sump pumps are in a housing that have holes in them to allow water to come in.  There is gravel around the holes that keep the holes from filling up with mud.  Once the casing fills up the float lifts up and the pump comes on and kicks the water out.  This happens several time until the water is gone.  Watch this video to see how it works.
