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 space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is carried into a border drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit.

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