  • Sump pump liners that are too small hold very little water, and the pump tends to discharge it faster than it can enter. This causes the pump to turn on and off continually, which burns out the pump's machinery early. Large sump pump liners also tend to be deep, which means they reach far down into the soil to draw up more water. Your goal is to keep your basement dry -- not the dirt below the foundation. Deep sump pump liners will make your sump pump work harder than necessary by having it collect water that does not need to be removed for a dry basement.

Rent a jackhammer to break up the concrete floor inside the circle. Make holes with the jackhammer every couple of inches around the marked circle and use a large sledgehammer or a small sledge with a masonry chisel to further break up the concrete into small enough pieces that they can be easily picked up and disposed of. Keep some kind of large container, such as a heavy-duty trashcan, to cart away the broken-up concrete.

The sump pump liner, also called a sump basin, is a perforated round plastic container about the size of a five-gallon paint bucket installed in the sump well. The liner serves as the receptacle to collect water for the sump pump. Perforations in the the sump pump liner are necessary to allow water rising in the soil to enter the liner, while straining out gravel and debris that would clog the pump inlet. Once the level of water in the liner accumulates to a preset depth, a float switch activates the sump pump to convey the collected water out of the basement.
