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 most affordable sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is channeled into a perimeter 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. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, gets rid of 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.
