Sump Pumps

 

A sump pump is a pump used to remove water that has accumulated in a water collecting sump basin, commonly found in the crawlspace of homes. The water may enter because of rain or natural ground water, especially if the crawlspace is below the water table level.

 

Sump pumps are used where crawlspace flooding happens and to help aid in the  dampness of the crawlspace where the water table is above the foundation of a home. Sump pumps send water away from a house to any place where it is no longer a problem.
