Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are designed to remove water from basements and crawlspaces.

What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is generally set up at the most affordable sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is funnelled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way 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 nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
