Sump pump pit, no sump pump
im buying house that has sump pit but no pump had it checked by surveyor says its clear water no damp no silt do i have anything to worry bout
If the basement has flooded in the past then you know you should buy a sump pump and get it ready to use (not just sit in its box in the corner).
If the basement has never flooded before, then a surveyor can find the water table and predict the chances of a flooded basement, but cannot guarantee anything.
If your lot is higher than the neighbors' you have less of a chance of a flooded basement but again there is no guarantee. The water table can differ by a few feet from lot to lot also.
