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 most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is funnelled into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit.

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