Where and Why Sumps Are Used
A sump pit is the lowest point of an area that water is designated to flow to, with the sump pump moving water out. A common place you would see this is in the basement of a residential house to avoid flooding in the basement. Other types of sumps are used in automotive mechanic shops or carwash bays to help catch dripping oil, fuel, and any other varying fluids that discharge from the car and help separate them before these harmful fluids discharge into the environment.
Maintenance of a Sump Pit
Sump pits have a primary purpose of catching drainage and regular maintenance cleaning is required to remove sludge build-up. Algae can grow on the side of the pits which can lead to posing health concerns. This can be avoided through regular maintenance and cleaning.
