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 sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is channeled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the foundation.
