Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are designed to get rid of water from basements and crawlspaces.

What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is typically installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is directed into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly 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 only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
