Needing some information concerning sump pumps. We want to purchase a home that has disclosed they had a crawlspace sump pump installed about five years ago. I have never had a home that required one and have no idea if this is a perfectly normal thing. I do not know the how much water they are even claiming to remove on an annual basis. Can this be a deal breaker for me, and will it hurt resale later? Should I be concerned having this in a crawlspace? We live in TN, so the water table is quite high anyway. How reliable are these things?
We have an offer being presented tomorrow and would appreciate any info before I continue with it. I thank you in advance.
