WHAT IS A SUMP PUMP?
Sump pumps are submersible pumps that are designed to redirect water away from the home. The sump pump is installed at the lowest point in the home, which allows it to pump channeled water away. A perimeter drain system is installed at the base of the home’s foundation, which the sump pump uses. The pipes in the perimeter drain system are perforated, which allows water to flow in.
The sump pump then redirects water to a storm drain, retention pond or a dry well. Sump pumps are triggered by a float switch that activates when flooding water reaches a predetermined level. By redirecting water, your sump pump is a vital appliance that can prevent your home from flooding. Most new homes are outfitted with sump pumps. Older homes may be retrofitted with sump pumps.
