A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally installed at the most affordable sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is carried into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation.

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