A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually installed at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is channeled into a border drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit.
