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 most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is directed 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.

A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
