What is a Sump Pump?

Ground water surrounding your home's structure is directed into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit.

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