Sump pits are constructed from durable materials like concrete, and collect excess groundwater, rainwater, or other liquids that may accumulate in the lowest part of your home.
A sump pit is equipped with a sump pump, a mechanical device that activates when the water level in the pit reaches a certain height. The pump expels the collected water away from your home to prevent flooding and water damage.
