A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally set up at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is carried into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
