What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is transported into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit.

A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
