Once a sump pump is installed, the water will flow into the sump pit through drains or by natural water migration. The sump pump pushes the water out of the pit and away from the building to prevent flooding. Even if your basement is sealed, your basement can leak over time, especially if the water runoff goes through the foundation of your home.
