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 lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit.

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