This improves the longevity of your sump pump and reduces your maintenance requirements. It also means that when it comes time to clean your sump pump, the job is easier as Matala Filter Media does not clog when used correctly. You can simply shake the debris off and wipe over your pump.

What is a sump pump?

Sump pumps are submersible pumps designed to pump clean or dirty water. They are used most to help prevent flooding, water damage and mould beneath the foundations of buildings. A common example is using sump pumps in homes to move water from below a basement to the outside of the home. A sump is essentially a hole or pit that sits beneath the lowest part of the home, often the basement floor. Better referred to as a sump pit or sump tank, the sump is a man-made tank that has been placed in the ground to collect water from drains or that has entered naturally from the groundwater in the earth. A sump pit is used to solve dampness issues where the water table is near or above the foundation of a building. Sump pumps sit idle until you need them. For instance, during or after a lot of heavy rain. The sump pump is used to transfer water out of the sump pit to an external area if the sump becomes too full. Essentially, the sump pump sits at the bottom of the sump pit. The pump has a water sensor on it which detects rising water levels. When the water gets to a certain level, the float switch activates and the sump pump sucks water out of the sump pit to a designated drainage area outside. The water is transferred through a discharge line. Some sump pumps can even detect water in soil, and can drain the water from the soil before it becomes a problem.

Sump pumps can also be used to pump water out of a space, such as flooded water from a building. The pumps are ideal for most water transfer or dewatering applications, including rainwater harvesting and transfer. Sump pumps can also be used for grey water pumping and even wastewater transfer, e.g. septic effluent water disposal. An example is using a sump pump to transfer water out of a pump-out pit, which is where septic overflows, if the pump-out pit is getting too full. Beyond households, sump pumps are used in industrial plants, power plants, construction sites, transportation facilities, mines etc, anywhere water can accumulate and cause issues.
