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 sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is carried into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure.

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