What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is carried into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, eliminates 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.
