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

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