What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is channeled into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit.
