What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported 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 set off by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
