Terrence Chadwick: Hello...I just had a Sump Pump installed in my Basement. I am young and Your Video really schools me on the process of What this device really do. One Question this sump pump is really quite. Should I leave the sump pump plug into the outlet and What Voltage is recommended.

Cora Goecke: a plumber told me to put root killer in my sump pump. Do I literally just dump it where the water is?

Marcy Rutt : Hi. In the future, please speak more loudly & as clearly as possible. I have bad hearing & could not understand a lot of your content, as much a I wanted to. Thanks for the info & keep making videos like this!!

ross199218: Short and simple, know the basics of your sump pumps people. It could come in handy :)

Hany Gamal: Does it have to be on all the time ? or just when we expect heavy rain ? Any Automatic mechanism to switch it on when the water level rises and shuts it down when all the water is drained ?
TIA

Cat Knight: Thanks very much for a simple and informative video. I learned what I needed and it wasn't too long.

wotan237: 1. can you install just outside the wall, outdoors, about 1 or 2 feet from wall? ( the source of flooding is there, the water travels)
2. how much does installation cost?

Kd Grayson: 1/2 the water was back flow lol, a check valve will leave you starting against many lbs of head pressure!

Kevin Hale: This is more of a 'What it does' video. I was looking to understand the mechanics of the pump and not what it does...

San saj: Thank you for this video, our basement recently flooded and we learned the hard way. We didn't have our sump pump on when it was raining and couldn't figure out if it was the grading outside the house or because the sump pump wasn't on. It was the sump pump. The carpeting is only wet from the edges connected to the walls and everything else is dry. Lesson learned! Thanks!

Victor Chuma: Great video Dominic. This answered all my questions about a sub pump. We just moved from an apartment to a house. I'm hearing all sorts of new sounds that I am not custom to. So this video really helped me better understand my new home. 
Thanks again, keep up the great video!

Dragon Steel: Now install a check valve so all the water in the pipe does not drain back through the pump back into your basin every time it turns off (notable the bubbles when you turned the pump off).
 

Loesje Vervloet: Is the sumppump for rainwater from outside or for the bathroom?

watchyourtubenow2009: thank you for the information

Yalec Walson: why not install a drain?

askmediy: In very cold areas I don't use a check valve. This way the water in the pipe will not freeze. Been there done that.

JK Productions: Where is the check valve? Every time the pump shuts off, all the water in the pipe would flow back into the sump pit without one.
