A sump pump is used to control localized ground water inside a crawl space. It catches water in the low spot of an area and then effectively pumps it out of your crawl space.
The average sump pump can last typically 7-10 years but it is very important to check on your sump pump often. You do not want it to go bad during a hard rain, and then allow your crawl space to flood. This can lead to potential mold and structural damage.
