A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is typically set up at the most affordable sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is carried into a border drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
