What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is typically set up at the most affordable sump pump repairspoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is funnelled into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit.

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