Sump Pits: Introductory Guide

The sump pit (also known as sump, sump basin, or sump well) is a water collection hole in the floor of your basement or crawlspace. It is very common for homes in areas that get regular rain-fall or have high water tables. (Fun fact: Prior to the 15th century, “sump” meant marsh. It wasn’t until the 1650’s that the term referred to a “pit to collect water”.)
