What Is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a device that moves water away from the low points in your home, such as your basement and crawl space. A sump typically refers to a constructed pit curved below the main surface of your basement floor. A plumber will usually install the sump pump in this pit.
Sump pumps feature valves that can sense escalating water levels or pressure. When water levels get too high, the sump pump automatically pumps excess water out of the basement through a discharge line to a designated drainage area.
