Building a sump pump pit
Sump pump pits are designed to collect water and feed it to the pump. It’s important to make a good sump pump pit, otherwise, the pump may not function at its full capacity.
Some of the tools and materials that you will need are:
- Tape measure
- Sump pump liner
- Digging equipment
The sump pump pit needs to be positioned where water tend to build up.
Making the hole
The pit needs to be 2 feet wide and 2-3 feet deep. It needs to house the liner that came with the pump.
You need to make sure that the liner sits smoothly in the hole. Use dirt to fill the space around the liner. This will fix the liner in place. The liner will stop any debris and dirt from entering your pump and damaging it.
