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 area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is funnelled into a border drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly 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 switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
