What do Sump Pumps Do?
A sump pump is a small device installed at the lowest point of your cellar or basement. When excess water enters your home, it is drawn towards the sump pump, which moves the water away from your home and reduces the risk of flooding.
Sump pumps are usually installed in small, specially dug pits that keep them out of sight and out of mind. Once they’re installed, they work automatically to keep water out of your basement and require only minimal maintenance to keep protecting your home.

- Your home is in a problematic location, such as a flat plot with little drainage, below the water table, or on poorly draining soil
