A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually set up at the most affordable sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is carried into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit.
