Normally that drain should be attached to the sump pump basin, so if it overflows the drain would also overflow. To remove the debris, try a shop vacuum, you may have to use a screwdriver or other item to loosen the debris.

: We have a floor drain next to the sump pump sump area. We assume it is for an overflow should the
: sump pump fail.

: When the builders completedthe house they must have allowed debis such as nails, small rocks or
: chat and soil to clog up the drain.

: Can you tell us how this debris can be removed?

: Do some of the professional drain cleaners have equipment to attack these kinds of problems?
