It is a small pump that sits at the bottom of a pit that will solve most of your basement flooding and leaking issues. Groundwater surrounding the area around your house is channeled into a drain system which is installed at the lowest point of your basement. Water enters the perforated drain pipes and is diverted towards the sump pit. The sump pump gets triggered by a float switch and starts to remove the water by pumping it into the nearest drain. It only works when the water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level. Most of the new homes already have sump pumps installed...
