Installing a sump pump will address any standing water or leakage in your crawl space right away. First, a sump hole is dug out in the low spot of your crawl space with a liner to keep mud out. Next, the sump pump is installed with an airtight lid and a discharge pipe. The lid is vital to the system. You don’t want an open pump with water sitting in it, as the water will begin to evaporate up into your crawl space’s environment. The discharge pipe will lead the water away from your home, usually to a downgrade spot in your yard.
