What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is directed into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
