What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is funnelled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly 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 only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
