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 point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is transported into a border drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit.
