A sump pump is installed to prevent dampness in basements that sit below the water table. They can also help in basements where flooding may have been a problem. While not the most glamorous part of your London basement conversion, they are essential in order to keep your brand new space free of damp.
They work by removing water that has accumulated in a sump pit (a hole in the basement that collects water from various sources including the drains of a waterproofing system, rain or groundwater. The pump sends the water away to a drain away from the house where it will no longer cause an issue.
Usually the pump will have a backup battery in case of power cuts and it will need to be examined and cleaned regularly to ensure that there are no problems that could cause damp or flooding.
