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 lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is channeled into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation.

A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
