Ground water surrounding your house's structure is transported into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, removes 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.
