What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is generally installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is directed into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
