Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are created to remove 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 point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is directed into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
