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 home's structure is funnelled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, eliminates 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.
