The pump can work on it’s own without power so that even during blackouts, your house can protect itself against flooding. New technology has allowed for great improvements to be made to the sump pump installation process and function.
The old method had the weeping tile connected to your drainage system which isn’t able to keep up with the large volumes of rainfall guaranteeing your home would eventually flood due to improper maintenance and pure capacity of an already deteriorating system.

With the new method, the sump pump is installed to the weeping tile and the city sewer connection is severed. This helps against flooding.

There is a requirement for this type of pump that your home would need. There is a minimum of a 3/4″ water supply line that runs from the city to your home in order for the pump to work.
