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 most affordable sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is carried into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure.

The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
