What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is generally installed at the most affordable sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is channeled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated 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 switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
