If you can guess from its name, a sump pump is used to pump water away from the building to prevent water damage, or at least minimize it. Water pumped from the home is redirected somewhere safe such as a well well or local storm drains. It was previously considered good practice to redirect water into municipal sanitary systems, but this has since been revised as it can put too much strain on sanitary sewers, leading to further problems. Redirecting water into sanitary sewers has even been outlawed in some municipalities.
