Sump Pump in Aurora Colorado Has Test Feature

The Home Inpsection at this Aurora Colorardo home shows the sump pit contains a pump with a test feature. The sump pit features a sump pump that has a built in air tube and allows you to test the pump for function. The air tube is contained inside the cord and leads to a diaphragm pressure switch within the sump pump. By using a bulb aspirator, (a baby care product to clean the nose) it is placed on the air tube to provide suction, then briefly placing your finger over the tube and quickly plug in the cord to the outlet, the pump should start and run for a brief period of time. Some who are not squeamish, simply clean the tube and suck with their mouth to achieve this.
