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 area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is channeled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit.
