How Water Gets In and Out Of Sump Pump Pit

Most homes have buried drain tile running around the perimeter of the house whihc is laid at an angle so the slope is towards the sump pit cuasing the water to flow through the sysstem and the drain tile inlet into the pit. From there the water is sucked up through the pump and out the discharge piping which leads to a final disposal location.

The Check Valve Prevents Water Backflow, Motor Short Cycling and Water Hammer Noise

The check valve plays three important roles. 1) Prevents water from running backup down the dischange pipe when the pump shuts off. 2) Prevents motor short cycling because already pumped water cannot return into the pit causing the motor to repump and repump the same water. 3) Lessens water hammer noise. The quiet check valve reduces the water hammer noise more than any other check valve type.
