What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is carried into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit.
