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 point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is funnelled into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated 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 just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
