What is a sump pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that is installed in the lowest point of a home. It works by channeling groundwater into a perimeter drain system that is installed at the base of the home’s foundation. The pipes that make up this drain system are perforated, allowing water to flow in. The sump pump then redirects the water to the nearest storm drain, dry well, or retention pond. Sump pumps are usually triggered by a float switch and only activate when water reaches a predetermined level. By redirecting excess water, sump pumps prevent water from accumulating inside the home. Our plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair.


Most new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding.
