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 most affordable sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is carried into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation.

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