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 point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is channeled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
