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 space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is transported into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond.
