What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is funnelled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit.
