What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually set up at the lowest sump pump repairspoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is funnelled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit.
