What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is typically installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit.
