Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are developed to eliminate water from basements and crawlspaces.
What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is funnelled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
A lot of new homes are equipped with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair work.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's specifically essential that water is pumped far from your home.
If your house experiences a power failure out for a prolonged period, regular power interruptions or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that use your home's water supply pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
