What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is typically installed at the most affordable sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is channeled into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure.
