They are the only way to provide drainage when the house is below the level of the sewer systam. There are some things that are unique to a system that serves an entire building rather than just the basement. First there should be two pumps. They should have an electronic alternator system so that the rotate operation. In addition there should be s circuit to operate both pumps if one fails or cannot work fast enough. Then there should be an alarm system to indicate when the pumps are not working or are not working properly and the water is getting too full in the receiving basin. Finally, the alarm system should be connected to a valve on the water supply so that no water can be used in the event of pump or power failure. Otherwise if water could be used but the pump could not dispose of it, the house will flood.
