What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is transported into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
