What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is generally set up at the most affordable sump pump repairspoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is channeled into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit.
