What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is carried into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
