If excessive moisture in the basement is persistent, the basement is flooded often and evidently the waterproofing system can not handle the excess of water in the sump basin, sump pump might be necessary.
It is also used when the foundation of the house is located below water table, or in the frequently flooded areas, that makes regular drainage impossible.
Sump pump removes the water from the system and directs it away from the house – into storm drain or dry well.
