What is a Sump Pump?

Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is funnelled into a border drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit.

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