Generally, there are four types of sump pumps systems which are used for implementing drainage facilities. Out of these four, one is motorized by water and the next two by electricity. The last one is run either by automatic devices or manual assistance.

In the water powered system the sump pump is worked by means of water pressure available from the respective home plumping system. This system is activated by a switch and is capable to trace out the presence of water accumulation around the houses.
