What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is generally installed at the lowest sump pump repairspoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is directed into a border drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit.
