Something I didn't know

Many houses don't have a sump pump! I thought this was a pretty standard item even for older homes, you know, like... plumbing, and... electricity. Just one of the many things I take for granted I guess.

I always thought you had to buy them separately, like a dehumidifier.

I think it is required in Appleton and they have to be pumped outside not back into your sewer.. I remember we were checked for that when we sold out house..

I remember when Appleton passed the requirement that houses had to put them in if they didn't have them already. My parents were NOT pleased, but we thought it was terribly exciting having a hole dug in our basement floor...until the gerbil fell in.
