Sump Pump Installation, Repair or Replacement
A sump pump is a submersible pump that assists in keeping water out of the basement or crawl space of a home. A sump pump is placed in a hole in the basement or crawl space called a sump pit. If water were to enter the basement/crawl space the water will be directed into the pit and then pumped out side of the home. A sump pump can make the difference between a wet and dry basement. A sump pump is designed for rain water and not sewage.
