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 most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is directed into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
