A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is funnelled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit.
