Re: does a sump pump have to be flush with the floor
Edited 1 times.
the INLET point needs to be flush else a puddle will remain on floor
if the top of the pump 'package' is the inlet then IT must be flush
if it is a pipe from a floor drain then the DRAIN itself must be flush
you answer your own question with the knowledge that water runs downhill
