What is a Sump Pump?

Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is carried into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit.

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