What is a Sump Pump?
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 point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is directed into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit.
