What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually set up at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is directed into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond.
