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 home's structure is directed into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit.
