What is a Sump Pump?

Ground water surrounding your home's structure is funnelled into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds 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 turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
