Sump pit is open or uncovered

Not only is a sump pit an eyesore in your basement, but it also can be dangerous. A pet, kid, or even an adult can hurt themselves by stepping into an open sump pit. Additionally, an open sump pit can produce odors and harmful gases into the basement environment. And finally, a sump pump in an open sump pit is susceptible to things that may fall into the pit and prevent proper sump pump operation. A healthy sump pump system is one that is sealed.

Many backup pump manufacturers overinflate their pump's capacity in terms of gallons pumped per hour and hours of running time - creating a false sense of security. For the first time, an independent laboratory has tested the leading retail backup pump systems; the results are clear: the Perma-Seal Backup Pump Systems are your BEST VALUE in backup pump protection!
